Paintings to Go

Spring has well and truly sprung! It was quite hot on Saturday when the girls and I drove to Millwood to drop off the above paintings. It was a beautiful day, though, and a fun outing for all of us. The girls played Pooh Sticks in the stream while Anna and I ran in alternately to peruse the paintings. It was one of those times that is so idyllic you start to get suspicious. Like any minute the Goblin Army is going to swarm out of the hills.

But enough about my work. Here are some beautiful pieces from the rest of the Hatkes:

And a set of Easter Gnomes that Anna made:

If you like the gnomes (who doesn't?) -our friend Clare makes and sells them on Etsy.

Finally, two video links for Monday. First is a fantastic little short film called Alma. The animation and design are nice and it's about equal parts cute and creepy. Second is an extended trailer for a thing about Cartoon College -The Center for Cartoon Studies.

MoCCA is so close!

Zero comments?!? Whatever!! I made a comment yesterday about how I loved the eggs--how I especially loved the one being chased by the creature and I wondered who made the beautiful rainbow one and speculated Angelica because she is full of peace and love!!! "zero comments." Humph.

Ben Hatke said...

Aww, thanks Annie. Your righteous indignation warms the cockles of my heart.

The rainbow egg was actually Anna's "Kalifornia Kreation."

I was going to comment on the rainbow egg as well, but as you all know, it wouldn't be consistent with our peaceful and inclusive nature to imply criticism.


Annie said...

Ha! Kalifornia Kreation! Fabulous. Well, I bet Angelica thought it was beautiful too. And do I sense some fun-making from Daddy being tossed in my direction???

No direction intended, Annie. Just throwing it out there.

I hope its okay that I am not a family member and I am commenting on this post...


Thanks for the link Ben! And I LOVE the Totoros on the eggs! Are those all eggs from your chickens?

Ben Hatke said...

Thanks Clare! Those are all our eggs. A few of them were that pretty blue-green even before we colored them.
