Flock of Flamingoes is a Family Affair

Flamingo art by Betsy Levels

When my four-year-old granddaughter wanted me to paint pink flamingoes, there was no way to refuse.  She and her mother and I took over the dining table, got out the pink paints, and had at it.  

My granddaughter (a fourth generation painter) created a "unicorn flamingo", which was immediately slammed into a frame as soon as the paint dried, and given a place of honor on the wall.  Needless to say, she was delighted.

I have never been known for moderation.  I painted a flamingo fence board.  Several pairs of flamingo earrings. Flamingo scissor holders.  Flamingo doorstops.  Flamingo canvases.  Thoroughly on a roll, I incorporated my new work into my merch offerings on, so now you can buy flamingo phone cases, flamingo pillows, flamingo mugs, and my personal favorite, a surfing flamingo t-shirt.  I haven't painted a flamingo on a guitar...yet.  But the day is young!
