I worked all weekend and made 50 original watercolor and acrylic paintings, mounted them (on boards that fit the old cigarette machines that they will be coming out of), sealed them with a nice thick gloss, signed, titled and dated each one, wrapped each one with cellophane along with a little note from me about the piece.

I think they came out pretty cute!

all lined up
Working with these little blocks brought out the kid in me. I couldn't wait to stack them all up just for fun.
All ready for shipping to the Art-O-Mat headquarters where they will find a home in a cool revamped machine and then find their way into the hands of an eagerly awaiting art lover. Check here
to see where the closest Art-O-Mat is to you. If there is not one close to you, see if you can get one in a museum or gallery in your town. You'll find cool stuff like this
in the machines from over 400 different artists.
I wonder if people will email me when they buy one? It will be fun to hear where these little guys end up.
