Ecosystems, Trees Cool the Globe - KeROBinson Painting Demo

Plant your trees now!

IKEA, an international leader in promoting sustainable business practices, has teamed up with American Forests to clean the air and sequester carbon through tree planting. The average American family needs to plant 30 trees to offset the CO2 produced by their daily energy use. By planting your trees now, you will join IKEA and American Forests in planting trees to offset CO2 and cool the globe.

Helping to Solve the Problem
Plant trees. During photosynthesis, a tree "inhales" CO2 from the air and then separates the carbon from the oxygen molecules. The carbon is absorbed by the tree, which then "exhales" pure oxygen back into the air for us to breathe. This process, called sequestration is how forests have always helped regulate the earth's atmospheric balance.

Trees are natural regulators of the Earth's atmospheric balance, sequestering carbon and reducing the amount of carbon dioxide that builds up in the atmosphere. The less excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, the lower the "greenhouse effect," and the less chance that we will suffer the devastating weather effects associated with a rapid shift in our planet's climate.

Empower yourself with knowledge

"THE ORACLE" 18x24" mixed media painting.
Don't let others make decisions for you, be responsible & get the FACTS for yourself! National Vaccine Information Center
oh, there is a government fund 4 ppl who are harmed by the vaccine, but there is NO MONEY in it. Good luck getting compensated. ;o

You Can Make a Difference

Most polls show that we ARE making a difference because more people are becoming educated about influenza and flu vaccines, especially H1N1 swine flu. Recent national polls have revealed that 30 to 50% in many communities are not planning to get a swine flu shot. Those who haven't made up their minds yet have lots of questions. So we have created some posters that you can print and post ALL over your community, your local stores, office and schools.

Hopefully more people will wake up and recognize that it is not wise to blindly trust information that is one-sided and doesn't provide ALL the facts about seasonal and H1N1 swine flu and influenza vaccines. People now have access to information from a wide range of sources, which they can independently evaluate to make educated decisions and Take Control of Their Health!

One way we can make a BIG difference in protecting our right to make informed, voluntary vaccination choices is to support the three-decades of work by the National Vaccine Information Center to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths; protect exemptions in vaccine laws and promote scientific research into the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated children.

I have made this non-profit organization -- America's Vaccine Safety Watchdog - one of my favorite charities and I urge you to become a donor member and help NVIC protect your informed consent rights and your children's health.

FORCED Swine Flue Shots?

These numbers just don't add up

How many people have to be vaccinated with the new swine flu vaccine to save ONE life from a swine flu fatality?

If the vaccine were 100% effective (that is, they prevented every death that would have otherwise occurred), they could be credited with saving 1 life out of 2000, right?
Because that's the normal death rate for this particular virus (these figures are widely quoted by AP, Reuters and the White House, by the way).

But no vaccine is 100% effective. As I mentioned above, seasonal flu vaccines might -- at a stretch -- be credited with preventing 1% of the deaths that might otherwise have occurred.
With this 1% effectiveness factor calculated back into the formula for swine flu (assuming the same 1% effectiveness factor), it turns out that you would have to vaccinate 200,000 people to save ONE life from swine flu.

That puts a whole new perspective on the vaccine push, doesn't it?

200,000 vaccines costs taxpayers roughly $5,000,000, and it subjects 200,000 people to the potential side effects of these vaccines which have never been subjected to any long-term testing whatsoever.

Is it worth spending $5 million and exposing 200,000 people to potentially dangerous vaccine side effects in order to prevent ONE death from swine flu?

If each vaccine shot generates $25 in revenue for drug companies, and the U.S. government orders the production of 160 million vaccines,
how much money is Big Pharma making off the pandemic?
That answer is roughly $4 billion in net revenues.

But even that doesn't count all the repeat business from the future victims who suffer neurological side effects
from the vaccines and have to be institutionalized and subjected to high-dollar medical care for years on end.

In all, a mass vaccination program could
end up generating over ten billion dollars in revenues for drug companies.

Coral Sea Reef Fish

I've been working on my Reef Fish series in a smaller format.
This one is a little different as it has a thick shine and was very hard to photograph without catching glare or reflections!
It is 6x6 inch on stretched canvas with 3 moorish idols swimming near an outcropping of black coral with real sea shells embedded. 5 day listing beginning Sunday 19th.
I will try to have a new painting listed on eBay once a week (crossing fingers) for $10 and sending out a blog post on Sat. night for a heads up to my subscribers.
I figure this gives ppl a chance to get an original w/o breaking the bank.
Everyone should be able to own ORIGINAL art!

Florida Lighthouse Original painting

"Jupiter Lighthouse" has a calm, restful feeling to it.
It was a clear night and the ibis were settled in for the night on a limb overhanging the inlet.
I had no camera, but the image was burned into memory & it had to be painted!

Florida Landscape Painting - COWs

All this cleaning out has motivated my muse so I've stopped to paint a bit. This scene was inspired by SR 70 near Myakka Florida.
I want to paint the cows so bad...they look so serene lounging around under the humongus swooping oak branches. Well, these are faraway cows....I'm working on close up cows, it's a work in progress 4 a while now.

Oil Paintings

Reducing prices on oil paintings. These are from 2003 when I first began painting and trying out all the different mediums.....I am a very MESSY oil painter, plus they take months to dry/cure, so I don't do large oils any longer. (just miniatures because it is so much fun to smoosh creamy oil paints around!)
Anyway, they R listed at eBay for 3 days and then I will put them in my Etsy store, at the same low starting price if they are still available.
There will be a total of 12 oil paintings.

Florida Folk Art Paintings - miniature

New Years resolution: try not to procrastinate. noticed I left the door open w/ 'try' :) Last year, I was supposed to clean out the studio, for a little constuction project w/o getting debris all over my work.....ah yea, well that never came to am listing back (2003up) works at ebay and ........
Here's a WIP work in progress that was inspired by a homeless man making/selling palm frond roses at the Orlando Art Farm I was at. He was kind enough to teach me and gave me a bouquet of three! He is originally from Ft. Peirce, used to mount fish & work on the boats in earlier times.
the 2nd pic is a sample of the miniature paintings I have on ebay/etsy.
