color of the dream in the prayer.
As they hang together in this tree they are a steady prayer for connection and reaching out hands to others, just like Tibetian prayer flags, all with the message: We all are ONE: one tribe - one heart!

15 years ago I painted these walls for Mikaela's play room. It was one of my favorite rooms in our home, everyone loved hanging out with Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-duck and the windows that fooled a lot of people, thinking they were real.
Redecorating this room was well over do...! But who can say goodbye to Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-duck? It was hard but in the end we said our final goodbye to our beloved friends and painted over them a color that should have been 'Venetian Blue' as I like to call it (vintage blue green) but because the room doesn't have natural light source the color turned darker and greener that what I had in mind. We are learning to like it.

Here is the answer…busy painting the charity rocking chair for a local private adoption agency that is having a fund-raiser in November.
It came unassembled and it being a rocking chair I thought it would be much easier to paint it while it's unassembled. Originally I wanted to paint Peter Rabbit on the seat but after I got the chair I realized that the way the chair was designed there wasn't enough room to paint Peter Rabbit without chopping him off.
I had to come up with a new theme that would work with the design of the chair. I started to think about my little nephew; Lee what would he like his chair to be if it were for him? Well the answer was easy… an artist's chair, with a lot of artist's materials.
Lee is three and a half years old and since the moment he was able to hold a pen he loved to draw and paint. It is the first thing in the morning he does even before his parents wake up and breakfast is served. Now he's into 3D art using anything he can find around the house that he can glue and be painted on…A true artist!
So an artist's chair it is! I decided to make each part of the rocking chair a tool or material that an artist would need, and what an artist needs more then anything if not paint. The seat became a crayons box, the arms a roller and a watercolors box with a brush. On the back of the seat I painted child like picture and the wood dowels of the chair became color pencils. After Steve helped me assembled the chair I had to do some touchups and varnish it really well, and walla….!!!
While I was busy with the chair I got a wonderful surprise from my friend Lynn Cohen who is a very talented quilter and photographer. You should visit her wonderful blog. I love her mini quilts and her cards with the beautiful flowers. I can't wait to frame the quilts and hang them in my studio.
My 'all in a row' photograph got in. They also allow us to exhibit one miniature art work and I decided to show my 'Gears' photograph that I took this summer.
