Discover the fine arts of rock and stone painting!

Fred Showker's Creative tidbits

While working up some pages and Creative Tidbits for our Designing Women special I discovered the art of painting stones. I had no idea it is such a popular and wide-spread practiced art and craft. Although searches bring up literally millions of images, it is not a new art. It's one that's been practiced for thousands of years. Here are just a few of the highlights we found.

What's more fun than Cinemagraphic GIF files, moving? Well, we've got those, along with another free font and some art photography you can enjoy. I've provided a link to see all the images as thumbnails too! Along with that we see another of those "minimal" logo collections -- are they really logos? We'll see, and we'll have a great time this this issue.
