A few little pet rocks...

I've been exploring some new ideas in between work deadlines. Like these sweet little "pet rocks". Aren't they the cutest? Kids are loving them. Well, adults, too! Let me tell you, these will be oober popular at this weekend's farmer's market. I'm pretty excited as it's out first here in Folsom and am looking forward to meeting new people here in the community.

These little rocks were painted with my set of "Select" Princeton brushes using my new set of Winsor & Newton acrylics. I've never used acrylics by Winsor & Newton before so it was a new challenge for prepping and mixing colors. But hey, they turned out darn cute? Don't you think?
