Same Car Next Year – 2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor ATC

I painted this from a reference photo by Susan (surob) at WetCanvas.  Here is what she said about the photo…

“I title this “Same Car Next Year”. It is difficult to dispose of things, especially large things in Japan so this is one way of sprucing up your junk car. We visited 2 years in a row. Same car, just different flowers.”

Of course, I had to add the flowerdy wall and the colorful graphics on what was a plain yellow, down and out car.  he he he  🙂

About Plutarch

Plutarch, the Greek historian who penned more than 46 anecdote-laced biographies of famous Greek and Roman figures in his Parallel Lives series of books, was more interested in exploring the influence of character on a man’s personal destiny than in writing dry histories. He was born in Greece during Roman rule, most likely in the year 46. He traveled extensively through the Roman Empire, finally returning home to become a priest of Apollo at the Oracle of Delphi. He died in the year 120.

It’s interesting to me that in 2012, we are quoting something said before the year 120.  🙂
