Throughout this pandemic and all the unusual rules of physical distancing, wearing a mask, and stay at home orders, I have noticed a lot of beautiful things have popped up at people's homes from the increase awareness of our surroundings. For example, people have been decorating their windows with signs and heart shape tributes to express their gratitude to our frontline workers. However, that is not the only artsy hobby that have been taken up by the families in the home.
While we all look up at the windows and give a moment of thought to the hardworking people at the hospitals, grocery stores and anyone who has to keep our society at an even keel, if we look down, we will see that rock painting has taken on a new level of awesomeness. What I found most interesting was not just the art work and messages that were nice, but also the way the rocks were then used as decoration around the home.
As the real estate industry was added to the list of essential services during the lockdowns earlier this year, I was still out and about helping people buy and sell their homes which allowed me to venture out further than my own neighborhood and gave me the opportunity to see how other people have coped during this difficult time.
This post is about some of the creative rock paintings that I have noticed during my dog walks and visits to other people's homes during buyer tours. I hope it brings enjoyment and inspiration to those looking for ideas, motivation, or a smile.
A family of humans in Pitt Meadows created this family of penguins for their garden and it was awesome!
These overgrown ladybugs are a bit lost and I actually don't remember where I found these guys roaming around.
I thought this was a great way to identify your veggies in the garden and will be doing this with the kids once we find enough rocks! Found at a house of an avid gardener in Port Coquitlam.
Also from the house in Port Coquitlam, these strawberry rocks were a great touch!
From our own herb garden in front of the house.
We hope you enjoyed this gallery as much as we did writing it. If you have a good rock photo to share, we would love to see it too! Come back often as this will be an ongoing post to as we discover more cool rock paintings.
