Kimmie of the blog Art in Red Wagons has given herself a wonderful project. She is painting small watercolors of some of the endangered sea creatures on the Gulf Coast, honoring their beauty and fragility and now endangered life. She calls it the "Oil Spill Animals Series." "It is a legacy for my children who are grieving over it all," she says. Stop by her blog, scroll down to some of the other paintings. They are lovely.
