Paintings with explanations: 1

Hi boys and girls! This is a new painting titled Solar-Activity Day (for the whole family). I only used a few of the many pretty colors that are available from the happy art supply store. I used brushes both big and small to create this artwork.

The title is meant to convey a double meaning. On the one hand, it is about solar activity (sunspots, solar flares, etc.) which can affect us all. On the other hand, it is a wry commentary on how many (if not all) of today's major art museums have so many fun-filled art activity days worked into their schedules for all the boys and girls and their moms and dads. Not that this is a bad thing. When Uncle Bobby was just a kid, he never dreamed that the museums would one day be so welcoming.
