Funky Street Lamp

“Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence.”
– Lin Yutang

Funky Street Lamp – 3″ x 5.5″ Watercolor

I had a lot of fun painting this.  The funny part is that when I finished it and showed it to the hubby, he said… “That would have made a better Christmas card.”  This was a mere 18 hours after I dropped 45 Christmas cards in the mail… with a magpie sitting on the head of an elk in the snow.  You know… snow… Christmas…     Gotta love him!  :)

This was cropped from a large night  city photo from Phlugel at WetCanvas.
