Welcome to my lil’ page. Thank you for being here and liking, requesting or just looking at my rocks. They really bring me so much joy just looking at them.  Many ask how long I’ve been doing this and it’s only been since April of 2018. I didn’t paint much in 2019 and 2020 as I was building my beauty biz and dealing with other things.  I really had no clue I could paint, let alone on rocks until a tragedy happened. My son was violently attacked in Clarksville, TN at the end of March and it was touch and go for 3 days in trauma and then a few days in ICU. He had two inches of blood on his brain and we were an hour away from losing him, the Neurologist said. That changed something within me. I was sleeping on the trauma floor, not literally, of Vandy for a few days when my bonus mom painted me an angel on a rock. I had no clue that others did this too. I just thought it was so special. When my son was released with a TBI, Traumatic Brain Injury and over 50 staples in his head, we went to my dad’s and bonus mom’s home for me to be able to sleep for a few days before I went back to Elizabethtown. On her table were paint pens and rocks. I sat down and realized that it was great therapy for the emotional turmoil I had been through. I fought depression & anxiety after this attack and when I got home I went out and bought acrylic paint, .50 Apple barrel paint from Walmart and two brushes. I went to streams but couldn’t find many rocks here so I bought a bag at Home Depot. The rest is the efforts of my new found art.  I no longer have depression and I enjoy making art for others. I still hide my rocks in parks or on walking paths and sell them to those who request. It brings so much joy to watch my grown children and granddaughter hide rocks with me out of their busy schedule. For my granddaughter to now have her own “rock purse” (which all you mom’s and “Nana’s” out there with little ones, if they need a place for their collection or rocks they want to hide, to put in, can customize and order, just message me).  This painting therapy has allowed me to meet so many of you and hear your stories and allow me to paint what you would like or just surprise you with a rock. So thank you for being here, for supporting my page and following me at the park to get my rocks. 😂.  I love doing this and look forward to painting more. ❤️ Thea (pronounced Tia)
