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......

The stars are dancing like diamonds in the moonlight

When I was a young kidlet, I begged my mom to send me a Shaun Cassidy tape to play on my crappy old tape recorder while I was away at sleep away camp. And to my delight and surprise, she actually sent it.  Doo Ron Ron was the popular song, but I actually preferred Hey Deanie, and wow, look at what 45 turned up over 4 decades later, somewhere at a garage sale in Texas (courtesy of my sweet mom AGAIN). It brought back all the central  Texas summer sunshine memories of the late 1970s.  Also, this painted record glows under black light. Wooooo!

Oh hello, Jimmy Page. I see you hiding in there behind Mr. Cassidy.

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.

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).

Honeymoon in Hawaii

Here is one of my most recent painted records, inspired by a Hawaiian plumeria.  I've never been to Hawaii.  One day.  This record is SOLD and has gone to live with a very awesome person.

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.

Gotta get that boom boom pow

Finally done.  I started this record a long time ago, but I recently decided it needed a little extra boom boom POW.  And now it's shiny and colorful like candy.  It's available for purchase.  If interested, please message me on facebook on the Records by Rachro page. Thanks!

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.
