New watercolor "Don't Touch"

Art inspired by Everett's fascinations: Transformers, Skulls, Snakes...
He told me what to paint. He is five years old. It was inspired also by Roberto Palazzo's skull and racing flags painting. See it in my etsy shop:

Driftwood and Cardboard

Earlier today a friend said that the best toys are sticks, cardboard boxes and rocks. I didn't think to put a rock on this little Earth Robot, but the other two mediums are covered. There is also a lump of matted green twine affixed to his top (which you can't see here). I made this while the kids were out and gave it to Jeff Newcomer, my brother, who took this photo. The picture makes me think that I'd like to see a skyscraper with eyes and arms.

Smiling Rainbow

I got out the paints the other day and painted with the kids! I made a rainbow with the traditional rainbow arch. Everett inspired me to be looser and scribble a little with the water-soluble colored pencils. I scanned in the art and the image wasn't rotated yet in Photoshop. My husband Jamie said, oh, Smiling Rainbow! So, I decided to turn it upsidedown as Jamie suggested and here it is.

Ellen Shulman's school fundraiser

Ellen Shulman and Scott Elofson's kids go to New City School. They are having a big fundraiser and silent auction, so I put some pieces in.

Two small bowls and one mixed media painting.

technology for good

Here's a jpg I just made ( I was working on an ad for myself for a Human Rights Lawyer's Program that I'm laying out).
