Barack Is Irish!

Barack Obamba's mom was Irish.  Why does this matter? Because I am Irish, JFK was Irish, the Beatles were Irish (except Ringo), U2 are Irish, most of Austrailia and New Zealand are Irish, Van Morrison is Irish, James Joyce was Irish, George Washington was Irish, William Howard Taft was Irish, Warren G Harding was Irish, Harry S. Truman was Irish, Jimmy Carter was Irish, Gene Kelley was Irish, Henry Ford was Irish, Walt Disney was Irish, Diamond Jim Brady was Irish, Ron Howard is Irish, John Houston was Irish, Jim Carey is Irish, Michael Moore is Irish, Nellie Bly was Irish, Phil Donahue is Irish, just about all of the talking heads on Fox are Irish, Billie the Kid was Irish, Kristine Mc Auliffe was Irish, at least 23 former US presidents were Irish, most importantly, I am Irish and so is Barack Obama!
 You can find a glicee quality print of this watercolor by me, 8" x 1 0" in a 11" by 14" mat on Ebay for $30.00 or email me at: I'll sell you one directly for $20.00 plus $3.00 for shipping. I have a glicee quality printer ( 8 ink jets!) and cut my own mats. I like to sign my prints rather than print the signature. It's really hard to tell the prints from the originals. $2.00 from every print sold goes directly to Barack's campaign fund.

The Show was Great!

I had a great time at Macapolooza! I sold two framed prints, one matted print and two cards. I know it's not a lot but it's just so validating! It was a benefit for Boy's and Girls Aid Society. they area group who places kids for adoption and works with run away teens. They were originally founded to help find homes for orphans arriving from the wagon trains on the Oregon Trail! My sweet hubby worked for them as a mental health therapist for many years before we started our own companies. So he volunteered to work the door. It was really fun to seeing him check IDs. We got a nice gift certificate for the restaurant for that. Here's what I sold.
Tomorrow night I'll be showing my stuff at my friend's hole in the wall gallery, Gallery One Corbett. I helped her do her last show and it was basically a big party with people buying art and jewelry. We advertized by word of mouth and fliers. Iam excited to have my art included this time!
