I made this painting a while ago. I like how it turned out.
Prints of this painting are available on Society 6, and the original is for sale on Etsy.
So many signs with dogs on them are negative and scary. “No Dogs Allowed.” “Beware of dog.” I decided to make a nicer sign for my apartment.
(I did this with markers so the lines aren’t perfect, but I like it anyway.)

If stars can fly through the sky, maybe hearts can, too.
I made this little robot painting for a friend who likes rainbows:
I made this to mail to my former WriteGirl mentee, but I’m putting it here so I’ll see it myself.
Last week, I joined a temp agency for creative types, and the woman who interviewed me really liked my robot paintings. During the interview, she told me a story that involved an old photo of Buckwheat holding a machete.
I came home and found the picture online, and made it into a robot. I mailed it out to her today.
I’m still making robots to thank people for donating to my fundraiser last year. This one is for a woman named Paula who requested a purple robot. It just occurred to me (after mailing it out to her) that while this painting has a lot of purple in it, the robot itself is not actually purple. Oops. I hope she likes it anyway. I painted it with purple intentions.
If this robot keeps reaching for those hearts, maybe someday it’ll get to have love in its life. I hope so.
Here’s a little robot painting I made for my friend, Kevin Maher, his wife, Rebecca Maher, and their two sons, to thank them for donating to my charity fundraiser last year. None of them are robots in real life (as far as I know), but this is what they might look like if they were:
Just look at all that robot love! :)
This is a robot I painted for my Twitter friend @ElizabethPurr. She asked me to include her cockatiel, Bianca, in the painting if possible, so I gave it a shot. I’ve never painted a cockatiel before, so I had to do some Google image searching before I got started. The way it turned out, I think the robot must be very tiny (or this cockatiel is unusually large).
I still have a bunch of paintings to make for people who donated to my charity fundraiser last year, but I’m getting through them one by one.
