Birds on a Wire – 2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor and Sharpie ATC
I painted this little ATC from another WetCanvas photo. I love those big old electric thingies! So fun!
Work computer is still down, so this is another watercolor done while passing time at the sign shop. It’s amazing that one computer can stop everything. When Publishers Clearing House brings my millions…. I’m going to buy a clone to the current computer and have it there on stand-by. :)
About Robert Frost
Robert Frost, the influential American poet known for his rural settings, uncluttered language, and meditative themes, wrote the poems, “A Road Not Taken” and “Mending Walls,” among many others. He was born in San Francisco in 1874 and moved to Massachusetts at age 11. He ran a farm for ten years, selling it to move to England and become a full-time poet. After achieving his goal, he moved back to New Hampshire. His ambition was to write “a few poems it will be hard to get rid of.” He died in 1963.

My Attitude is Infectious
Five days a week, I post positive quotes that can change the course of your day. They are quotes that make you feel good.
A lot of people enjoy sharing these tidbits with the people around them. I also post a little piece of myself through my art. I usually paint in a colorful, happy style.
"Alyson Stanfield's book I'd Rather Be in the Studio! The Artist's No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion is the most comprehensive self-promotion advice out there for artists. And not only is it packed with information, she also shows artists of all kinds how to implement each action step. I can also attest that the book is well designed, easy to follow, and a pleasure to look at (graphically). I just love the big red exclamation point that I see on the spine when it sits on my bookshelf!"
