Showcase of the most beautiful rocks painted by artist Lidia Zingerle, winner of the RED WEEK event in RockStreet Collective 7
As you undoubtedly remember, few weeks ago our RockStreet Collective group of rock artists honoured the beauty of using the colour red in our stone paintings.
Astonishing patterns, intricate shapes, hidden symbols, love and thrill, they were all captured in the most fascinating painted rocks there are. Here is one of my most recent articles capturing some of the most beautiful red rocks posted in RockStreet Collective.

"I take all of my rocks from the rivers of the region I live in. I love the nature and because of this, I also use natural decorations such as old wood pieces to complete my artworks.To paint my rocks, I only use acrylic paint but no clear coating."

"My biggest motivation to continue painting on rocks is the smile on people's faces when they appreciate my work.
I usually sell my rocks at creative-expos in South Tyrol, but I also ship them worldwide."

A Visit to Italy - The Amazing Marilena Sostero Talking about Her Passion for Creating Art on Rocks 1
A beautiful day in Ancona, Italy. Photo by artist Marilena Sostero
Greetings to everyone from Italy!
My name is Marilena Sostero and I live in a beautiful city by the sea, called Ancona.
For many years I have passionately painted using oil techniques. I also loved making portraits in crayons and charcoal. Later I approached the art of rock painting, with much love and fun.
The most exciting thing about rock painting is how you can change a stone or a little pebble found by chance, into a small artwork that so many people love!
I love to find rocks in the shape of a cottage or a mushroom, which nobody appreciates , and turn them into beautiful pieces of art.
Saluti a tutti dall'Italia!

My great passion is to paint stones of every form, but my true love is to reproduce the ancient houses with the flowers lurking on the walls. I love to create these houses without painting the walls with colours, but using only shadows to create the depth. Then I add the flowers and trunks that climb around the windows with synthetic paste. I do not draw almost anything in pencil, but I rely on the brush using black colour to letting my imagination carry me on.
Here is one of the works I never wanted to sell, because it embodies the best I want to achieve.

If I were to give a piece of advice to someone who has just started painting I would say:
Always observe with great attention all the beautiful things that are around us … and never miss the joy of creating, like any baby would do.
Se dovessi dare un consiglio a qualcuno che ha appena iniziato a dipingere, direi: Osservare sempre con grande attenzione tutte le cose belle che vediamo intorno a noi… e non perdere mai la gioia di creare come farebbe un bambino.
