I have always loved the story or Ruth and Elliot Handler, the couple who started the Mattel Empire in a garage. Now Elliot has passed at 95, may he R.I.P.

Elliot was the creative artist person of the team, while Ruth was the marketing and business wiz. After he retired, Elliot devoted himself to painting. I wish I could see some of his art! Does anyone know where I can find any on the web?
