I love to paint big and go with the flow. Here is a recent project completed for the good people at Harrah’s Rincon Casino Valley Center California. Thank you!
Have you ever met a sea monster who loves the ocean but doesn’t know how to swim? Meet Monstro from the shores of California. He is often mistaken as dangerous for his large size, monster horns and stegosaurus plates. Monstro is actually a friendly monster and has a huge heart. He connects with The Kelp Kids and their love of the ocean. Fun facts: Monstro is also known as “Burrito Boss” for his love of veggie burritos with black beans and avocado. His favorite color is purple and favorite song to dance to is Planet Rock by Afrika Bambaataa and the Soulsonicforce…. Rock it don’t stop it…
Konichiwa!!! Olivia the Octopus is the baby girl of the Kelp Kids. Born off the coast of Japan she brings life to all that come in contact with her because of her pure heart and selfless love. Olivia’s magic power comes in the form of a flower which she holds in her tentacle wherever she goes. Fun facts: favorite song PYT by Michael Jackson. Favorite accessory is the headband…similar to the one rocked by Pat Benatar and Olivia Newton John. Ittekimasu!
The Kelp Kids would like to celebrate the infamous decapod crustacean known as the hermit crab on this amazing Monday. Despite being labeled hermits they are actually social creatures. There are different species that have different living preferences. Some choose land while others a life at sea. Most hermit crabs are nocturnal and must find larger shells to call their home as they grow in size. The crabs actually trade homes according to size needs, so basically they are innovators in the green friendly housing industry.
G’day mate! Meet Jeremy the purple whale from Australia. The Kelp Kids travel on the back of Jeremy and explore the world. The purple whale is a rare species and is actually larger then the blue whale which was once believed to be the largest creature on earth until now . Jeremy is magical and emits energy from his spout which can serve as a bridge when the Kids want to get on land. Set sail on a purple whale and never look back! Cheerio!!!!!!!
June 26, 1997 the “Fearless Eyed” Israel Kamakawiwo’ole passed away. The Kelp Kids support cultural diversity, love and positivity. We celebrate Iz and his love for his Hawaiin people and culture. The ability to touch the hearts and minds of others is incredible. Thank you for your sharing your Mana.
Thank you to the Backfence Society, the City Of Vista and the individual who adopted Grandview at Summer Nocturne. This particular piece has a great deal of meaning to me in that it represents my favorite place to be and symbolizes the first time I connected with a whale in the ocean. Have a happy and safe summer with your friends and family. I am currently working on The Monstro And The Kelp Kids Book final edits and will self publish this project in September =).
