Gold Coast Australia

“Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world.”

Gold Coast Australia – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor & Sharpie

This was painted from a photo of the Gold Coast in Australia by Christine (Crispur2005) at WetCanvas.  As I was working on this, I kept thinking of the old Jetsons cartoon.  Funny thing is that when Christine saw this, she also thought of the Jetsons with no hint from me.  I used to love that cartoon when I was a kid.  :D

About Ralph Waldo Emerson
Ralph Waldo Emerson helped spark the transcendentalist movement with the essay Nature, which described his belief in the spiritual essence of humanity and the natural world. He was born in Boston in 1803. He was a Unitarian minister until he resigned in 1832 to become a philosopher and writer. He suffered the untimely deaths of many of his loved ones: three brothers, his first wife at age 20, and his eldest son at age five. Emerson died in 1882.
