Bison Watercolor Painting

Bison Watercolor painting is 7 x 10 inches on Pastelmat paper. He lives at the Roger Williams Zoo. He's on sale at Ebay right now, along with some other small paintings and few larger ones.


"A painted landscape is always more beautiful than a real one,
because there's more there. Everything is more sensual, and one takes
refuge in its beauty. And man needs spiritual expression and nourishing. It's
why even in the prehistoric era, people would scrawl pictures of bison on the walls of caves. Man needs music, literature and painting---all those oases of perfection that make up art---to compensate
for the rudeness and materialism of life."

Fernando Botero

New Children's Book -- "Bubble Butt! The Challenged Sea Turtle of Mystic Aquarium



STAR SEA TURTLE OF MYSTIC GETS NEW CHILDREN'S BOOK
Coconut Creek, FLORIDA - May 7th, 2010 -
Educa Vision Inc., a Florida-based publisher of multicultural educational materials, launched the children's book Bubble Butt! The Challenged Sea Turtle of the Mystic Aquarium, by Kiki Latimer.

The author of The WaterFire Duck is at it again. This time, Latimer tells the story of Charlotte, a sea turtle who came to Mystic Aquarium, Connecticut, in 2008 from the Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island after she had been found stranded nearby. A boat had struck her, causing partial paralysis of her lower digestive tract. As a result, air accumulates in her hindquarters, forcing her to float with her rear end up, a condition popularly known as "bubble butt".

"A year ago my grandchildren and I met Charlotte the Challenged Sea Turtle of Mystic Aquarium and we were delighted and amazed by her! From this beautiful creature of the sea we learned a story of adventure, danger, courage, and compassion. Bubble Butt! shows both children and adults the importance of perseverance and humor through the rough times in life. After a boat bumps and wounds Charlotte, you will laugh and cry with her as she comes to terms with her new life. In the end she just might make you wish you were a turtle or fish, with bubbles in your own derriere!," says Latimer.

Though she is unable to survive in the wild now, there is a chance that, with long-term rehabilitation, she could recover and possibly be released back into the ocean in future years. Until then, Charlotte is a star at the Mystic Aquarium's main exhibit floor. Charlotte is the first sea turtle the Georgia Sea Turtle Center has placed in an aquarium and is serving as an ambassador for her species, charming and inspiring more than 725,000 guests at Mystic Aquarium each year.

"The kids were all excited about "Bubble Butt!, the turtle," says Fequiere Vilsaint, who presented the book to third-grade students of Orchard View Elementary in Delray Beach, Florida.

Looking into the Past Watercolor Painting

Looking into the Past Watercolor Painting is 9 x 10 inches on Pastelmat 170 lb paper. This is from an old photo of my father and his sister, and it looks like I have painted my grandson who is probably the same age as my father was in the photo. The Pastelmat holds the colors of the watercolor - so the colors remain vibrant and don't fade like regular watercolor paper does. The paints spreads, though, unless your brush is very dry, and after a while of trying to 'control' it - I just let it do what it wanted to.

The Good Lord can make you anything you
want to be, but you have to put everything in His hands.
....Mahalia Jackson
