Rock Collection for the Ages
When some of us were children, we had rock collections. We used to go out in our backyards and pick up rocks, take them inside, wash them off, and have a look at them to see what color or texture they had. We also broke rocks apart to see what was inside. Some of us here at www.fineartamerica.com even had rock polishers that our aunt or uncle bought us for Christmas that we used to polish rocks we found all over the place longer than we care to admit. In fact, there is someone here who shall remain nameless that still collects rocks in his spare time, cuts them, polishes them and sells them, but we think he is carrying things a bit too far, but we digress. There is something really cool about rocks that just make us little children again, if even for a little while.
With that in mind, we thought we would offer you a collection of beautiful rock paintings and rock photographs from all over the world. That way, you can have a look at our fabulous rocks and pick some out from our collection to collect in your home.
We have thousands of paintings of rocks here that you will find interesting. Rocks have been presented by artists as representations of steadiness and steadfastness since long before Peter was described in the Bible as a rock. Indigenous people’s rock drawings are here, as well as huge rocks that represent solitariness and steadiness, which we could all use a bit of right now. In some of our paintings, the rock is symbolic of something immovable, stubborn, even – and we bet you can find someone to give that to, or maybe more than one person, depending on how many stubborn people you know.
There are also paintings of single rocks, cut open to reveal their insides. Very interesting views of the insides of rocks of every color of the rainbow. In addition, our artists have painted some amazing paintings of famous rocks, such as the cliffs at Brighton or the mountains of Appalachia. Whatever kind of rock you love, you are sure to find a painting of it here.
We think this is where rocks really shine, when they can be photographed in their glory. Rocks are truly something to be amazed by, if you think about it. There are photographs of one rock, or many rocks, from the inside of the rock, and the outside of a rock as well. In addition, rock formations really shine in photographs. Want a picture of the Grand Canyon? Or maybe Bryce Canyon? Or the cliffs at Zion National Park? Garden of the Gods? Done. Or perhaps you are more of a frozen rock person. No problem. We have photos of the Himalaya, the Alps, and every mountain range in between. No problem.
So, if you are like us, and you love rocks, we can take care of that for you. Just stop on by here at www.fineartamerica.com and have a look at our rocks. We have rocks that will knock your rocks off – okay, maybe we got carried away a little on that one.
