Eufaula 2011 Art Walk Poster – 11″ x 14 Watercolor

This is the painting that started the sock monkey craze we have going in Eufaula.  See the red building on the far corner, next to the aqua awning?  That’s Steel Daffodils.  I am currently working on the kinda orangy colored building with no awning.  Now it’s gray with black awnings and it’s Our Favorite Place, the new gallery in town.   If you turn left at Steel Daffodils, the next one I’m doing is State Farm, on the right side of the street.   If you turn right at Steel Daffodils, you’ll see my sign shop on the right.  Yes, there will also be a Signs by Beth painting and who knows who else will jump on the bandwagon.    Fun!

About Helen Keller

American author and activist Helen Keller was born in Alabama in 1880; she became blind and deaf after a childhood fever. When Helen was seven, her teacher, Annie Sullivan, coaxed her out of her sullen, angry shell and taught her to communicate. From then on, Keller took on the world. She graduated from Radcliffe, traveled the world visiting sweatshops and speaking out for the powerless, helped to found the ACLU, and wrote 11 books. She died in 1968.

    Really cute! Really captures that small town feeling with the old-fashioned car and the multi-colored buildings on Main Street (or whatever street!) I like the soft colors.
