Haile King Rubie's paintings are lovely. Considering the subject matter (stick figures, balloons, simplistically rendered buildings), the lines, and the rich use of color, you'd be forgiven for assuming that the artist is a precociously talented grade-schooler. Some of it is moving, some of it isn't. But this third-grader, you might think, has a big future ahead of him.
