It’s official, the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office has accepted my application for the TM of Teddy Bird

This clock that I created and donated is to benefit the You Think organization. It’s a wonderful support for kids as they learn to be creative through the Zimmer Children’s Museum in Los Angeles.
The clock actually works and is signed. The face of the clock has a drawing (5″x7″) of a little head and is done in graphite.
show&tell: the art of time is the Zimmer Children’s Museum’s
newest exhibition opening May 7th, 2006. This highly
imaginative exhibit features works of art created from
clocks by 78 artists, humanitarians and social activists.
Using the metaphor of time, each piece is utterly unique,
ranging from whimsical and decorative to meaningful
and thought provoking.
Beginning April 30, 2006, all clocks are for sale with
100% of the proceeds benefiting youTHink, an innovative
art and education program serving public school students
throughout California. For information on purchasing
clock art, please contact Carrie Jacoves at 323-761-8992.

The second auction is at the Zimmer Children’s Museum here in LA. The event is called Show and Tell, The Art of Time. All art is created on clocks or watches. The auction is May 7th, posted below is the clock I did for my donation.
And finally the City of Art/City of Angels art auction being held on May 11th here in LA. This event will support CAAF (Children Affected by AIDS Foundation). 100% of the donation will go to support this organizations needs. caaf4kids.org
My donation is an 8″x10″ painting titled Teddy Bird Flying West.
The reception was wonderful, thanks to all that made it down to the gallery. The event went smoothly despite one small glitch when the lights went out! After the city got the power back on we enjoyed the final hour of the show.
The show was a huge success, as of the second day we sold 12 of the 15 paintings. The most popular painting in the show seemed to be Hermosa and the Flower Garden. Mr. Wiggles made many smile. There are a few remaining posters which are signed so if you want one, run on down and see Sharon.
Thanks to the Columbus Dispatch for doing a fun write up in Sunday’s paper as well as the Short North Gazette for doing a cover story. Both can be view in the Press section of my now updated website.
