Squirrel Eats the Pigeon’s Lunch
4″ x 6″ Watercolor on Indian Village handmade paper
I loved this reference photo. There really was a pigeon in it, watching the squirrel eat. Of course, they we both kinda gray, so I had a little fun with them. The background was a big tree trunk, so I sent them on an adventure in the country. Isn’t art fun? We can do anything our little hearts desire….. and get away with it!
I just wanted to show you a little bit of history. This Tastee Freez has been open in Eufaula, since 1956. I just lettered the windows this morning and it got me wondering about the history, so I called City Hall to get the date it opened. Of course, in a couple weeks it will open up as Just ‘Wingin” It, but I am proud that nobody has had the nerve to remove the nostalgic Tastee Freez sign. Our little town wouldn’t be the same without it.
