Scarecrow in Fall – Watercolor ATC

“Since no one is perfect, it follows that all great deeds have been accomplished out of imperfection. Yet they were accomplished, somehow, all the same.”
– Lois McMaster Bujold

Scarecrow in Fall 
2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor and Sharpie ATC

Ryan, over at Asmalltowndad’s Weblog has initiated a small ATC exchange for fall.   If you look at his post from September 19th, you’ll see the one he mailed to me yesterday.  I can’t wait to get it.  It’s beautiful, don’t you think?  I hope this little ATC brings a grin to Ryan’s face.  That will make my day.  🙂

The photo reference I loosely used is by Artistammy, at the WetCanvas Reference Image Library.

I like that quote today.  I’m taking a flying lesson tomorrow, after 3 months off.   I’m a little nervous, since it’s been so long.  My instructor needs to fly with me in order to re-endorse me to fly solo.  My last endorsement expired a couple weeks ago.  It comforts me to know that no pilot was ever perfect, since there are no perfect people.  Of course, if you’re flying soon, I may not have comforted you much.  he he   😀
