I was inspired to paint a mouse hitching a ride on the back of a frog after reading this true story about a flood in India.

First, I searched through my unpainted rocks to see if I had any shapes and sizes suitable for this project.
Two, smooth stones were the right size and shape with a flat surface suitable for gluing the painted rocks together...
...so, I primed the stones with white, acrylic paint.
|The stones have been primed|
|Painting has begun on each stone|
|The painted stones have been glued to each other|
To display the frog and mouse similar to the photo in the news story, I filled a container with small pebbles and shallow water.
