Rock Paintings by Roberto Rizzo 8

Golden frog and fly, paint on stone by Roberto Rizzo

Roberto Rizzo’s rock paintings are like an updated version of the old pet-rock trend. In 1996 Rizzo started using acrylic paint to capture animal images that curve organically around the natural shape and imperfection of the stone surface used in place of canvas. The images are sweet and humorous, and like a pet or a rock, they beckon to be held.
