Scrap Bag Duck

Scrap Bag Duck – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor & Sharpie

Doesn’t he look like he came from your fabric stash scrap bag?  I have a lot of little pieces of fabric and no big pieces right now.  Just enough to do little projects.   I just recently rediscovered my old love of fabrics and sewing.  I just need a LOT more hours in my day.  :D

This was painted from a photo of a duck by Elainesq at WetCanvas.

About Lady Bird Johnson

Claudia “Lady Bird” Johnson, the wife of President Lyndon Johnson, is known for her concern for the environment. She was born in Texas in 1912. Johnson asked her to marry him seven weeks after they met. She supported his career by keeping his congressional office running after his heart attack, stumping for Democratic candidates, and visiting 33 countries as his emissary. She founded the Wildflower Research Center and worked to pass the Highway Beautification Act. She lived in Texas until her death in 2007.
