Monster Vs OC Thirt
Im sooooo excited to share with you one of ur NEW T-shirts FROM The Summer T-Shirt Contest Designed by Oregon City’s Very own Linda Bauer Downing
She was born and raised in Oregon City.Lived around Atlanta Georgia for 15 years but came back here with my husband to be around my mother as she got older and I really missed Oregon.The monster and the elevator (I wasn’t thinking of Godzilla when I painted it) was painted on a rock, donated to Adrienne Crockett of La Tourette’s Army.In 2019, she asked my rock painting group to donate rocks to sell at a fundraiser for the renewal of Latourette Park.I painted and donated that rock but wanted it back so I had my husband go buy it back at the fundraiser.I heard about painted rocks in 2016 and started a rock painting group.We paint and hide rocks around Oregon City. I don’t paint anything else, just rocks.Some for kindness, encouragement, suicide prevention, but a lot of just goofy images. I usually paint around 75 to hide downtown during the Teddy Bear Parade, Trick or Treat on Main Street and the Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony. Otherwise, I make a handful to hide around Oregon City each week. They have “#oregoncityrocks” on the back, and a message to “keep or rehide” and “please post a pic on Facebook or Instagram with #oregoncityrocks when found”.Not many found rocks get posted, but when they do it’s fun to hear about it. Some people get a rock with an uplifting message right when they need one. Some people find our rocks and take them on their travels, so we’ve seen our rocks travel all over the world…and now I get to see one on a T-shirt. Awesome!
