Hummingbird - August 7, 2009

"Live in such a way that you would not be ashamed to sell your parrot to the town gossip."

Will Rogers

About Will Rogers

American humorist Will Rogers was considered the Mark Twain of his generation. He was born in 1879 in Oklahoma, of Cherokee descent, and left school early to become a cowboy. In South Africa his showy roping skills won him a job in a traveling Wild West show, and he quickly switched over to vaudeville and film acting roles. He wrote six books and 4,000 syndicated columns. An avid flier, he died in a plane crash in 1935.

This is from the saddle of a carousel horse. I was too chicken to paint the horse. *grin*

What a great quote! I love the lively ATC/ACEO too--oranges and pinks play so nicely together. :)
