Stone People

This painting honors the stones of the earth. It is loaded with prairie rock that I finely ground with a mortar and pestle then made into a paint using an old fashioned recipe. I combined this earthy, handmade paint with modern acrylic to create this homage to stones, and the wisdom they hold about the earth. Contains limestone, sandstone and gypsum from Russell County, Kansas. Surrounded by a handmade, American barn wood frame.
