“Live in such a way that you would not be ashamed to sell your parrot to the town gossip.”
– Will Rogers
Lovely in the Wind – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor & Prismacolor Ink
I found this photo in the WetCanvas Reference Image Library. It was contributed by Sundiver and she labeled it New Annan. I looked it up in Wikipedia and found this:
New Annan is a outlying community within the city of Summerside, Prince Edward Island, Canada. It is named after Annan, Dumfries-shire, Scotland. Cavendish Farms, Prince Edward Island’s largest private sector employer, maintains two large frozen foods processing plants in New Annan. An 1875 gazetteer refers to New Annan Mills as a “small village in Prince County, 6 miles from Summerside. Pop.[Population] 80.
I just love the composition of this photo and I imagine I’ll paint it again. I added the truck for fun and of course, I painted the white house pink.
About Will Rogers
American humorist Will Rogers was considered the Mark Twain of his generation. He was born in 1879 in Oklahoma, of Cherokee descent, and left school early to become a cowboy. In South Africa his showy roping skills won him a job in a traveling Wild West show, and he quickly switched over to vaudeville and film acting roles. He wrote six books and 4,000 syndicated columns. An avid flier, he died in a plane crash in 1935.
