The Haunted Ship – November 2, 2009

“When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.”

– Franklin D. Roosevelt

The Haunted Ship

5″ x 8″ Watercolor & Prismacolor pen

A little leftover from Halloween, that I did for WetCanvas over the weekend.

The WDE (Weekend Drawing Event) is a lot of fun. I participate nearly every weekend. We attempt to complete our paintings, drawings, etc, in two hours, so it helps me to become a little braver and looser than I used to be. To add to that, I have made some really good friends over there. Go by there and see. It’s fun.

About Franklin D. Roosevelt

Four-term American president Franklin Delano Roosevelt, known as FDR, pulled America out of the Great Depression and led the country during World War II. He was born in New York in 1882. His political career halted when a bout of polio paralyzed him from the waist down, but after learning to walk with leg braces, he became governor of New York and then president. His New Deal initiatives included Social Security, jobs programs, and collective bargaining. He died in 1945.

    There’s not much else one can do but tie that knot….I like this quote. I like the line in the movie Scen of a Woman where Pacino says “When you get tangled up just Tango on.”.
