I remember seeing these things when I was a kid but I never knew they were called "Cootie Catchers". Was there some other name they went by as well?! I guess being a guy I was sort of out of the loop. My daughter is in 4th grade so naturally she knows how to fold one up. This was fun, I love painting unusual subject matter.

I remember as a kid I did all these stuffs.It went something like this "Color color which color do you choose".What fun.Its quite creative of you to even think of painting such unusual subjects.

I love this one and it takes me back about 50 years. We made these back around 1960 and I don't think they had a name. We would put our own questions and answers on them, and use whatever was the cool thing at the time and try to be bazaar, although it is probably tame by today's standards. I really like your paintings and this one is no exception. Your sense of color is wonderful!
