“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be.”
– Groucho Marx
The Yellow Car – 6″ x 8″ Watercolor
I painted this from a photo by Crispur (Christine) at WetCanvas. Christine lives in Australia, so that is why you might not recognize the store brands. Wind is a cellular provider, but I have no idea what Camper is. In the reference photo, the awnings were plain old black. Bah humbug.
About Groucho Marx
Julius Henry “Groucho” Marx was the wisecracking central figure of the Marx Brothers comedy team, waggling his eyebrows in movies like Duck Soup and A Night at the Opera. He was born in New York in 1890. His mother organized the family into a vaudeville act, which didn’t become successful until Groucho began ad-libbing jokes and insults. In the forties and fifties, he hosted the wildly successful radio and TV quiz show You Bet Your Life. He died in 1977.
