We are the village green preservation society


I had an explosion of extra succulent babies this winter.  All the babies had babies.  So now I am painting the cutest little 4” pot sets to plant the grandplants in.  I love you, cute little baby cacti 🌡 , but now I will sell you.
The pots will be sealed with polyurethane to protect the vibrant colors. There are currently 6 matching pots.
My potted grandplants will be for sale, if you're in the Kitsap or King County area (DM me).

Are You Really Mine?

Finally done! And this one is going to a fabulous person at MoPop (the museum formerly known as Experience Music Project a.k.a., my old job) today.

I've included a picture of what it looks like under black light. Wooooo......

Will You be Staying After Sunday

I'm painting another record. Can you taste the rainbow? (PS: This 45 is called The Peppermint Rainbow.) I must therefore use all the colors.
Be sure to search up “Will You be Staying After Sunday” by The Peppermint Rainbow 🌈 on YouTube. Listen to the song on this record I’m painting. SO VERY AWESOME.

A beautifully framed Rachro record...Quincy Jones

Someone bought one of my painted records and framed it in the most outrageously cool way.  I am digging this so hard.  Check it out.


Come and see more of my painted things on Facebook or Instagram.

You gotta wait a minute, wait a minute.

I'm almost finished painting this. Pretty sure no one has a mailbox like ours.  I'm hoping it will magically attract more fun and useful things to get mailed to us.   Checks and large amounts of money are good, too.  I'm not picky.

Electric Ink and Paint

I love this outlet cover!  Earthy oranges, turquoise, reds, and greens, plus hand painted details in a mandala style.  Fun.

My outlet covers, Rachro domino flowscapes, and painted records are available to view and purchase on my Facebook page, Records by Rachro.  You are invited to share the info and comment or ask questions there.  They can be shipped anywhere within the United States.

Each outlet cover is protected for durability with UV protectant and an acrylic polyurethane coating.

Orange Juice, Lemonade,and Limeade

This hand painted outlet cover is so juicy!  It is so bright and citrus-ey in person.  If you love exciting and juicy colors, this is the one.  It has sort of a marble or stone look too.  I just love it.  It has a refreshing orange juice/lemonade sort of look

Electric Rainbow

Here is another Rachro outlet cover, hand painted by me!  It is vibrant and beautiful; Even moreso in person.

Listen: Your appliances want to speak to you, and through this decorative electric outlet cover, now they finally have the means to say they don't want to be ignored or fade into the background anymore. They can now say, "Here I am.  Plug me in.  Turn me on, right here next to this couch."

Bland is boring. Don't be boring.

Blue Ocean and Sand

Here is a relaxing blue-themed landscape, hand painted by yours truly on an electrical outlet cover.  I sort of imagined myself at a beach, standing off to the side and up a little hill, looking at pebbles and wild grass.

Here's my question: Can an electrical outlet in your living room transport you to another place and time?  Yes.  Yes, it can and I am proving that fact right now as you are reading this and indulging in my beach fantasy.

Poppieeeeeeezzzzz will make them sleeeeeepyyyyy (and let electrical appliances function)

Oh, summer...I love growing things in my garden.
I painted this electrical outlet cover with some bright and colorful red and pink classic poppies.  The baby poppie details in this piece are so tiny---some as small as the point of a pin.  I really enjoyed creating the small details.

Plug in, turn on, tune in...to Rachro outlet covers.

Hi!  Along with my tiny Rachro Flowscapes, I've also been painting electric outlet covers!

Ce n'est pas un record

This isn't a record, but what it lacks in vinyl it more than makes up for in color saturation and psychedelic goodness.

Go Ahead and Take a Ride; No Telling What You'll Find.




Here's a record I've listened to about a million times.  I love you, Go-Go's.
Jane Wiedlin, you are a bonafide goddess and a genius.
I painted this for a lovely couple that lives near the beach in California.
The Go-Go's had a huge influence on my teenage self in the 80s.

Something for the girl with everything



A very generous person gave me their collection of old Sparks albums, which included this one called Propaganda.  I think it came out super groovy.

If you would like to purchase this perky album, please visit my Big Cartel store with this link to the record:

Thank you for looking!

Hawaii calls


The Best of Hawaii Calls.
I adore this record and it will be displayed at Jude's Old Town,
in the heart of beautiful Rainier Beach in Seattle.

Glitter in the gallery

 
I love this one. Lime green glitter and soft red design.  This one wasn't planned.  It was improvised and I think it came out rather deliciously.  I love when art just happens. It now lives in a gallery in Houston.

Say it correctly in Russian

 
Here, above, is the strange baby cousin to the other Russian language records.  It is 7-inches in diameter, just like a regular 45 rpm record.  But the inner label and spindle hole are the size of a 12-inch LP.  Weird and neat!  You don't see that everyday.
This was called "Say it Correctly in Russian."  Well, okay.

Your lonesome nights are over



This record used to be Roger Williams' Songs of the Fabulous Fifties.  It featured the songs: Mister Sandman, Mona Lisa, Goodnight Irene, and Love is a Many-Splendored Thing.
This teal and brown paisley record went to live, appropriately, with a man who really loves oldies radio.

Hawaii, instrumentally yours...

 
 
Pink!  Hawaii!  Flowers!  Wheeeee!
