Little Red Chevy – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor & Sharpie

I painted the Chevy from a photo I found in the WetCanvas RIL.  Everything else came from Bethville.

It’s Whole Hawg weekend here in Eufaula, Oklahoma.  It started with a rodeo last night, continuing through the weekend.  Tonight at 6:00 there will be a parade down Main street.  That’s always a fun one.  Saturday, there will be a boat poker run on the lake,  carnival, a car show, an arts and crafts fair, hawg cooking and a sandwich giveaway at 5:00 pm.  I’m sure there is more going on that I forgot to mention.  People will be cooking hawgs all over town for judging at 3:00.  Then they all cut up their meat and make sandwiches to give away.    It’s a fun event and did I mention… I get to design their logo every year?  🙂

About Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., one of the greatest American jurists of the twentieth century, was called the Great Dissenter because of the brilliance of his dissenting opinions. He was born in Boston in 1841 and was named for his father, the author and doctor. He was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1902 and became known for his pithy, quotable opinions. He stood strong on free-speech rights and was an advocate of judicial restraint and objectivity. He died in 1935.

    I like the red truck and it definitely fits in “Bethville”. I can picture the sock monkey waving good-bye from the bed of the truck and a lady in a sunhat driving into the distance, though, too. 🙂

    Both your trucks are terrific! So stylish and full of color. I love how this one is riding off toward the purple mountains. And very cute logo for the event, I hope you had fun! (And I hope no animals were harmed at the rodeo.) : /
