Here's a trio of paintings from my daughter. I know, everyone thinks their kid is some kind of artist and maybe they are. Perhaps all kids are artists in the way they think. They're curious, they unknowingly take risks, they're innocent and genuinely interested in learning something. Give them art supplies and they're bound to express themselves honestly in one way or another. Another thing I like about these pieces is they were produced naturally, unprompted. She sat down, picked out the colors, got her brushes and went at it on her own.

Recently on a drive home from dinner it was requested by my daughter that this song be played over and over.

Art of PAWS

For the second year I've been invited to participate in the "Art of PAWS" event that helps raise money for Saint Louis Effort for AIDSPAWS provides education and services to people living with HIV/AIDS so they can keep pet companions as long as possible. 

They have a number of artists donate artwork to be auctioned off.  The painting above is my contribution.  This year's event will be on Aug 11 at The Rialto Ballroom (within the Centene Center for the Arts at 3547 Olive).  It's a great event and organization and if you can't attend and bid on a piece of work, I still strongly encourage you to donate to this cause.
