Rock Painting Ideas and Patterns Can be Changed Easily to Create Unique Pieces

What I enjoy about rock painting is that one rock painting idea or pattern can create many unique painted rock objects by changing up the paint colors and a few design elements.

Recently, I came across a  Baby Bluebird of Happiness rock painting pattern and painted this baby bluebird.

Next, I hand painted two more baby bluebird rocks. By painting the birds with larger mouths and placing them in a basket, I now had a set of Hungry Baby Bluebirds of Happiness.

I then painted another variation from the same rock painting pattern using the colors of robins, and placed them in a twig basket with moss.

Yet another variation of baby bird rocks was hand painted using shades of tan. I placed these painted baby bird rocks into a green basket.

In the photo below, you can see how one rock painting pattern and idea produced several unique, painted rock sets by: 
  • Using differently-shaped rocks
  • Changing the paint colors   
  • Varying the design for mouth shapes
  • Adding interest with baskets. 

Baby bird rock painting ideas are endless thanks to a simple rock painting pattern, nature, and the inspiration that is all around me.
