Boxcar in Bethville – 5″ x 8″ Watercolor and Sharpie

I painted this from a photo that Lin (oldrockchick) posted on WetCanvas.  It didn’t have flowers on it, so my buddies at WetCanvas said it didn’t belong in Bethville without some kind of pretty paint job.  he he  So, of course I added flowers.   I was very intimidated by all the mechanical stuff underneath it, so I added mobile home skirting.  Fun!

About John Muir

American naturalist John Muir is remembered as a passionate champion of the natural wonder of Yosemite; he was instrumental in turning the land into a national park. Born in Scotland in 1838, he immigrated with his family to Wisconsin in 1849. He dropped out of college to walk 1,000 miles from Indiana to Florida. After falling in love with Yosemite, he took a job herding sheep nearby. He developed the theory that the valley was created by glaciers, which is now accepted as fact. He died in 1914.
