For reasons unknown to me, I have taken a profound liking to these crazy looking "Chickens"! They seem to come in so many shapes, sizes, poses, and varieties that I just adore them. I have painted quite a few and these are some examples that fall into my Category of "CRITTER PAINTINGS". When you...

What is From Pebble to Paintings?

From Pebbles to Painting is one woman, me, Sandy Pilon, with little training but with a passion for painting, using the natural mediums of pebbles, stones, rocks, and driftwood, and manmade materials of tumbled glass, acrylic paint, and polyurethane spray coatings. My products are only 80% Handmade because the other 20% was created by God. I use all manner of rocks, stones, and pebbles to create Landscapes, Still lives, and what I call Character paintings on the surface of stones. The smallest of the stones are the pebbles used primarily as Friendship Stones or Game Pieces and these are generally only about 1 " x 1.5"  in size. The average size stones measure around 2"×3"  to 3" x 4" then I have some quite large pieces which are mostly landscapes and they are around 6"×5".  The larger stones are suitable as decor in the home as are some of the smaller sizes as well.  To keep the painting intact and preserved, once painted and dried, the stones are given a two coats of Polyurethane to protect the painting, making them as waterproof as possible.

I also use the much smaller stones and pebbles to create what is known Pebble Art.  In this form, the stones are can be painted as small people or animals and used to create a scene or they used as pieces or section of an object or a person or animal as a longer, narrow pebble may be used for an arm or a tree limb or a rabbit's ear.  Still other times the pebbles are painted different colors and they are the medium used to "paint" the picture as in the painted stones are the petals of the flower.

I hope this has explained a little bit about how I turn Pebbles into Paintings.  I hope that you enjoy seeing what I have to offer and that you will tell your friends.  Please feel free to comment on what you see and if you have any suggestions, I am always ready to listen.
