“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.
