“Luck? I don’t know anything about luck. I’ve never banked on it and I’m afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: hard work — and realizing what is opportunity and what isn’t.”
– Lucille Ball
McIntosh County Courthouse – 8″ x 10″ Watercolor
I didn’t add the sock monkey to this painting because it is for sale and a Judge or Court Clerk may want the painting for their office, but may not feel so warm and fuzzy about the sock monkey. All the individual “business” paintings are sold before I paint them. I guess you could say they are commissioned. I’m painting the Post Office, City Hall, Posey Park, the Library, etc., just so that the black and whites can be in the coloring book I’m working on. Here’s a link to the black and white version of this one.
About Lucille Ball
Lucille Ball, the beloved redheaded comedian, was born in 1911 in New York. She enrolled in drama school — where she was told she had no acting talent, so she became a model. That career led to her discovery by Hollywood. Ball and her bandleader husband, Desi Arnaz, pitched a sitcom to CBS, which refused it, but they went on the road with it as a vaudeville act. The act — about a ditzy housewife and her bandleader husband — was a success, as was the ensuing TV show, I Love Lucy. The show made TV history when Lucy’s sitcom character was pregnant on the air. She died in 1989.
