Each detailed piece is a 3D representation so life-like you won't be able to resist the urge to pet them ! No two rocks are exactly alike and each piece is individually created by the artist making them a one-of-a-kind original.
The size of rocks I paint varies from 60 lb boulders to fingertip sized pebbles. The majority of paintings on this site and my auctions are approximately 3" x 2" Which is a manageable size to paint given the intricate detail as well as a reasonable size to ship with most costing under $4 to send.
These creative "pet rocks" sit on guard and welcome & greet each guest that enters. They are real conversation pieces. Smaller rocks make ideal paper weighs. They look great in small baskets or resting on a pillow. They make an excellent centerpiece on a counter top or table. I use the larger rocks as doorstops, bookends or porch dwellers. They can be place next too or inside potted plants.
In some cases, the larger rocks can scratch surfaces if placed directly on table tops or counters. A small piece of felt or cloth can be placed under your new pet to prevent scratches.
