“Just don’t give up on trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.”
– Ella Fitzgerald
She Wanted an Identical Tractor – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor and Ink
Okay… maybe I wanted an identical tractor.
he he Scatty Kat from WetCanvas posted a photo of herself in this
jacket and a separate photo of a rusty old green tractor. I decided to
paint that charming old tractor to go with Illustration Friday’s theme of Identical.
It was fun! An afterthought… I should have made the green bits red so
it would stand out better against the background, but I did the
background last and by then, it was too late.
About Ella Fitzgerald
With her three-octave range, a purity of tone, and a wonderfully
expressive voice, singer Ella Fitzgerald has been called the voice of
American jazz. She was born in 1917 in Virginia and began singing
professionally at age 16. Her rendition of the nursery rhyme “A-Tisket,
A-Tasket” launched her stardom. Her best known recordings include the
Cole Porter and George Gershwin songbooks; she also toured with Duke
Ellington’s band. She died in 1996.
