Crooked Little Road

Crooked Little Road – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor & Ink

The word of the week on Illustration Friday is Crooked.    The little MG is from a photo reference by Sharrm at WetCanvas.  Wouldn’t that be fun?  Hop in your classic MG and hit the paved country roads?  I don’t think it’d be as fun on gravel.   You’d have to drive entirely too slow!   🙂

I love Katharine Hepburn! One Christmas day, when I was single, I rented everything I could find with her in it and had me a Hepburn marathon!! African Queen is one of my all time favorite movies!

About Katharine Hepburn

Gutsy American actress Katharine Hepburn was ranked the greatest actress of all time by the American Film Institute for her roles in films such as The African Queen and The Philadelphia Story. She was born in 1907 in Connecticut. Early in her film career, RKO took away her overalls, demanding she dress like a screen icon, prompting her to walk through the studio in her underwear. Her romance with Spencer Tracy led to their delightful verbal sparring in films like Adam’s Rib and Woman of the Year. She died in 2003.

    Love the lil red car, the church, the bales of hay, and the winding road.

    just had a MG british car show in a local park this weekend, they still are pretty cool little cars. Nice painting would have made a great t-shirt

    Hepburn! Love her! My favorite is “The Philadelphia Story”, which also starred Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart. She was certainly raised with a lot of privilege but also went her own way and stood up for what she believed.

    Love the painting! The little car is so cute! Lovely shaded colors in the hills and clouds. A very happy one, though I suppose yours usually are happy ones. 🙂

      Thanks, Cindy! Isn’t Katharine Hepburn the bomb? I forgot about The Philadelphia Story. 🙂 She also chose not to have kids because she knew she was too selfish. I respect that a lot!
