Somi and Penelope's room at the Purple House

   Around a year ago Somi (11) and Penelope (6) came from their grandparents house is Minnesota to live at the Purple House here in Oakland.  I was worried the transition from a christian household in the suburbs to one of Oaklands historical collective houses was going to be hard on them, so in preparation for their arrival I painted this mural in their room.  I didn't have a whole lot of time, and I know it's cheesy, but it was fun and the kids liked it.  The girls are still here and are totally comfortable with their lives in Oakland.
