Stonescapes are pictures lovingly created with pebbles, beach glass, shells, driftwood and other unusual objects such as plastic, nuts, metal and seeds, found along the shores of the Great Lakes. The pictures are matted and displayed in barn board frames, crafted by Mac and Dorothy, a retired couple who live in Burlington. I purchase rough cut pine, stain it, then Mac and Dorothy work their magic and created the frames. Because of my concern for the environment, I buy used frames at yard sales and second hand stores and recut the glass to the sizes I need. This is much more economical and better for our planet. My daughter in law, Christa also does pebble art when she has the time. Stonescapes tell a story. They often depict themes related to family, friends, children and emotions such as joy, affection and love. When I retired, I looked for something to do that would allow me to enjoy the outdoors and channel my creative spirit. A holiday on the east coast with two friends in 2003 led me to pebble art. As long as there are pebbles on the beach, I will be there collecting and creating!
