Little Red Chevy – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor & Sharpie
I painted the Chevy from a photo I found in the WetCanvas RIL. Everything else came from Bethville.
It’s Whole Hawg weekend
here in Eufaula, Oklahoma. It started with a rodeo last night,
continuing through the weekend. Tonight at 6:00 there will be a parade
down Main street. That’s always a fun one. Saturday, there will be a
boat poker run on the lake, carnival, a car show, an arts and crafts
fair, hawg cooking and a sandwich giveaway at 5:00 pm. I’m sure there
is more going on that I forgot to mention. People will be cooking hawgs
all over town for judging at 3:00. Then they all cut up their meat and
make sandwiches to give away. It’s a fun event and did I mention… I
get to design their logo every year?
About Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., one of the greatest American jurists of
the twentieth century, was called the Great Dissenter because of the
brilliance of his dissenting opinions. He was born in Boston in 1841 and
was named for his father, the author and doctor. He was appointed to
the U.S. Supreme Court in 1902 and became known for his pithy, quotable
opinions. He stood strong on free-speech rights and was an advocate of
judicial restraint and objectivity. He died in 1935.
