About the Author
Lin Wellford's first book, The Art of Painting Animals on Rocks, created a sensation when it was published in 1994, and it has since become a classic, treasured by animal lovers who discovered how easy and satisfying it is to transform a smooth river rock into a lifelike looking animal. Wellford continues to explore the many uses for rocks, stones, and cement landscaping elements. A frequent guest on HGTV's The Carol Duvall Show, Wellford has also been seen on HGTVs Smart Solutions, Your Home Studio and on dozens of news programs. Her work has been featured in Birds & Blooms, I Love Cats, Grit, National Geographic's World, Ranger Rick, Woman's Day, and many other publications. Noted for her clear, encouraging writing style, and easy to follow directions, Wellford continues to be a favorite author among artists and crafters alike.

When I first got this book - I was stumped. I told myself that it was just another book from a talented person who can do this sort of thing with ease. But wait - then I tried it. It's not that hard!! What Lin creates in the book is mesmerizing and amazing, but don't let it stop you from trying! If you like little gnome cottages or grand Victorians, you can paint them on rocks! The start up cost is cheap - a few brushes, some dollar bottles of paint, and free rocks - and you are on your way to astounding friends and family, and even yourself with what you can come up with. I live in an area that has some really old houses and I find myself snatching pictures when they catch my eye - I can use the ideas from them on rocks! Great gift giving ideas too. Who wouldn't want a fun cottage rock to put on a shelf, in the garden or use as a doorstop, whatever the use - they are quite awesome. I highly recommend this book. Lin Wellford provides fun examples and steps to create awesome art - the sky is the limit and your imagination can go wild with this technique. This isn't a cheesy guide either - it's 128 pages of step by step instructions and stunning examples for people to really learn from the book. I love it! The author is talented, but she shares it well so others can learn too.
I lived in a small town when I started this hobby, painted local businesses and gave as gifts to them. Soon I had a business going from folks who saw them in the shops.
And went on to portraits of families pets. I lived on a river so had plenty of shapely rocks for my projects.
