These are incredibly well done but they don't have to be so perfect, you can paint small stones with messages of love/kindness/hope etc & leave them in public parks for others to find.

One message, at just the right moment, can change someone's entire day, outlook, life!

i have been doing it for a while & it's very feel-good stuff!!!

This looks so real. Animae I have seen rocks painted like you speak of leaving them in parks for people to find is such a great idea it would make someone's day. That's always a good goal is to make one person smile each day. Thank you very much

This article inspired me to check out other rock artist online. There are so many talented people out there! But the detail work displayed in Akie Nakata's animals is truly spectacular. They are all so wonderful that I can't choose a favorite.
