100 Garden & Floral Oil Paintings, Original Artwork by a Colorado Daily Painter, 36/100


Rock Garden
8" x 8" oil on cradled panel

We literally have hundreds of rocks sitting in the back yard under a tree waiting to be used in our garden.  This one caught my eye as it had so many colors as well as moss.

I am just awed by those brush strokes, Pam. It turns a rock into a thing of beauty!

What color...I love it! It pops from the canvas!

So many wonderful colors in the rock. Love the "craggy" edges and plane shifts. I want my own garden rock now.

Really like all these garden paintings. I don't think I would ever think about painting a rock. The colors are lovely.

A beautiful tapestry created by those wonderful strokes of color, Pam! Great abstract qualities!
I really like this series.

Hi Pam, I see you are attending the Jill Carver workshop. It will be good to meet you after some time of seeing you online! I will be there too, and am really looking forward to it.

Why are your rocks there so beautiful and the ones I find here are chunky and plain? Amazing colors in this! At first I thought is was a raw Amethyst.

Sherry, Thank yo so much! I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Thank you Dayna, This is really the color of this rock! I was amazed at how bold it is.

Kelley, Thank you. When you live in the rockies, it's easy to have a rock garden!

Thank you Carol, Painting my garden made me really (!!) paint my garden!

Dean, Thank you. I'm finding that a series really makes me look. I don't want to paint the same things in a garden, and have found so much more!

Joanne, Thank you. I look forward to meeting you, too!

Thank you Gwen, The rocks in the rockies are not dull colored. A great idea to paint gems. Maybe in the future!
