Rock Painting Ideas: Suns and Moons Painted on Stones

My sister collects suns and I wanted to paint a few so she could choose the one she liked best.

My sister chose this painted sun/moon rock for her collection

To get my creative juices flowing, I started a new Pinterest board. It features ideas and inspiration for painting various sun and moon designs on rocks and stones.
