Bexley woman uses stones and her art to spread love and kindness during pandemic
Randi Eisen is a resident who loves to paint stones to make them beautiful. Through this, she wants to convey that each stone is different, but the meaning is the same, and each rock is as bright and colorful as her.
This all started way before the COIVD-19 came. Her mom Denise Blank, used to love painting and giving these stones to others as a piece of happiness.
Both mother and daughter used to go around Bexley, leaving their kindness rocks at a different location from where many people would pick those stones, and it made Blank's day as she loved to give them to others more than painting them.
But in December of 2019, Blank passed away after having a battle with cancer.
"I know she lives within all of us, and she was a very positive person, and she loved the spread kindness," Eisen said.
Like Blank, Eisen also loves to do this.
Now she is using her art to spread messages, and now it works as inspiration for those who pick it.
Appreciation. Kindness. Love. These were the things her mother wanted, and Eisen's rocks aren't for herself. She doesn't sign it with her name else. She uses the signature "XOXO" to show her affection.
