States and Capitals

My son was required to memorize the states and capitals this year. I didn't know all of them myself, I realized.  So, I painted a map.  I added trivia to make it more interesting.  Did you know that pickle ball was invented in Washington State?

Oh, and yes I did fix the spelling error!

The house I live in was built in 1913. It's charming, quirky and in constant disrepair.  The steps leading up from the basement may be getting replaced soon. If so, I will dearly miss the man who lives on them.

The Party-Bot 2000

Honk Jr.

I have been painting a set lately for a middle school production of Honk, Jr.
It's the story of the Ugly Duckling.

Pet Potato...with googly eyes of course.

Our dog is 16. So from time to time we talk about what it will be like when he's gone. The other day the kids (in a fit a laughter) told me they were going to get me a pet potato to help keep me from getting lonely. A pet potato with googly eyes.  I left this drawing out for them...
