Inspiration came in the form of a rock that looked like a house.  Artist Lyndy Belchére has been creating art her whole life but this tangent from using found materials became a delightful, surprising new direction for her. Known for her watercolors, pen and ink and pencil drawings, the rocks brought out a completely different muse for her. Stimulating her sense of three-dimensional work was a new avenue to explore and spurred her to become more inventive. “These whimsical little works of art are the fruition of my collection of miniature items.  Deciding to use them as the embellishments to the natural surface and shape of the rocks, brought a lot of things together for me…they really make the scenes more interesting,” says Belchére.  Platforms for the scenes evolved as the rock art, using recycled and found materials, began to take shape. They range from rustic cottages, to high-rises; from the farm to castles. You’ll also find Wizards and Crystals set into the all-natural settings enchanting.  All will bring a smile to the viewer’s face. A selection of her paintings and drawings will also be in the show.  A portion of all art sold will go to Art From Scrap/Explore Ecology.
