Birds on a Wire – 2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor and Sharpie ATC

I painted this little ATC from another WetCanvas photo.  I love those big old electric thingies!  So fun!

Work computer is still down, so this is another watercolor done while passing time at the sign shop.  It’s amazing that one computer can stop everything.  When Publishers Clearing House brings my millions…. I’m going to buy a clone to the current computer and have it there on stand-by.  🙂

About Robert Frost

Robert Frost, the influential American poet known for his rural settings, uncluttered language, and meditative themes, wrote the poems, “A Road Not Taken” and “Mending Walls,” among many others. He was born in San Francisco in 1874 and moved to Massachusetts at age 11. He ran a farm for ten years, selling it to move to England and become a full-time poet. After achieving his goal, he moved back to New Hampshire. His ambition was to write “a few poems it will be hard to get rid of.” He died in 1963.

      Thanks, Joan! I don’t know where the time goes either. I have been computer-less during the day at work all week, and I really miss getting around, too. I have been doing a little painting during my down time, though. 😀
