Follow my records and me in the magical land of IG

I recently made an Instagram page just for my records, and I would love for you to follow it.


You can also follow my more chaotic Instagram account, theangrykitten.  It has art things, but also people things, place things, and whatever things.

Follow both! I hope to see you there.  We can be instagramigos (yes, I just made that word up).

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.

Neon skies, tiny paintings

I've been painting a few tiny Northern Lights lately!  They glow under black light and are really fun. Seeing the Aurora Borealis is on my bucket list.  I don't know when I'll have the means to travel to Iceland and sleep under one of those glass-roofed yurt things. But in the mean time, I'll paint them while the mood strikes.

These all have homes.  But I will make more!  Some of the photos show what the paintings look like under black light. WOOOOOOooooooOOOOOOO!


All of these small paintings were made by doing an abstract "poured painting" underneath with fluid acrylic techniques that included neon/black light paint.  If you look closely, you can see the "cells" underneath the painting.  They were then embellished with more neon paint and black paint to form the silhouette terrain, trees, and stars.

Tiny Aurora Borealis black light painting


Under black light it looks like this:


I painted a tiny painting of the Northern Lights for Django Jay.  It flows under black light and is pretty effing cool, I think 😊.  The under painting was a poured painting with neon paint. The northern lights were painted with more neon paint, plus black for the treescape.

It's 4" square.  Big thing in small space.  Molto en parvo.

Green Cactus in the Summer Rain


***SOLD!***

Look at these teeny, tiny, cute-as-heck cactii!  Here is a 1" x 2" Green Cactus in the Summer Rain tiny landscape, created on a durable magnet. It is resined with jewelry-grade resin and the sides are coated in copper paint.

More of my tiny Rachro Flowscapes are available if you go to my Records by Rachro facebook page.  They are each available for purchase (shipping available domestically within the US), and each domino has a super strong neodymium magnet, so it will definitely and reliably hold several things up on your refrigerator at once!  Those little magnets are mighty and I wanted something strong, functional, and high quality to go with my tiny flowscapes.

Purple River


This domino is so vibrant, it's hard to accurately show it with a photo.  Sometimes the colors just don't translate digitally. But let me tell you:  It is very PURPLE, light GREEN, and BLUE!  Come into my fantasy world, where the landscape can be purple and look like colorful candy.

Each domino is available for purchase (they are each around the $8.00 US range, plus shipping and handling, and that is an incredible deal for a handmade piece of functional art!) and can be shipped domestically within the United States.  If you have any questions, you can just message me on the Records by Rachro Facebook page.

Thank you for looking!

Electric Ink and Paint

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

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.

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.

Monkey Etsy, Monkey do.

Guess what.  I've been playing around with my Etsy shop that I started a few years back.  I put a few listings up for sale and will gradually add more.  You are cordially invited to take a look and make a purchase.  Warning: There are things there besides records.  Shhhhhhh.

 Here is the link.

The Making of Moody Blue




Well, howdy Elvis fans!  This tasty blue vinyl record, Moody Blue, was painted for a person who loves the color purple and who lives in Scotland.  I think this mandala is soooooooothing to the eye!

More photos that show detail will be added later, but for your viewing pleasure and entertainment, here is a video showing the design process, starting from scratch!
Bonus:  accompanied by Pearl Jam

I will always love you


Unfortunately, I didn't get a ton of pictures of this record.  I kept the design a simple black and white color scheme, because Whitney's voice was so lovely and pure - it didn't need anything else.

Now this record lives in a sunny and beautiful mountain community.  It was also the inspiration for a mural that I painted on a swimming pool wall, using colors that matched the house exterior.



Look at how rad this mural came out!  I did the elephant mandala last year.

New Records by Rachro Shop on Big Cartel

Hi, everyone! I recently set up a Big Cartel store, to offer a few of my pieces. I hope you'll take a look and share the link. The site is where the actual art is sold (not "print-on-demand" products), so when you buy there you're buying the original pieces and not prints. If there's an available piece you would like to buy and it's not currently offered on the site, please message me privately through my Facebook page and I can probably make that happen. 
Thanks for looking! Much appreciated.


Here's the link:

Watercolor Rainbow Mandala with Mystery Creature in the Middle

I love this mandala.  I'm not sure whether the flying creature is a butterfly, dragonfly, bird, or alien life form.  That's up to you. But it is colorful and happy, and deserves to be framed and hung on a wall to inspire freedom.

It is for sale on my Big Cartel shop.  Please click on this link to view it there and purchase it.

Red Flower Mandala

Not a record, but what it lacks in circular shape, it more than makes up for in color!  This is a cute little flower painting, created with the brightest ---almost glowing---RED, along with vibrant blues and greens.  The background edges are a very deep, saturated blue.  It is painted on wood and has a hanger attached to the back.  It measures 4.75"x6.5".  It is available for sale on Big Cartel. Here is a link, which will take you to my store:
