West 57th and State Line Home – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor & Ink

I found this wonderful, stately home on Google street view.  I was drawn to the landscaping.  It was so fun to paint the cute little round bushes and the cool rock wall.  🙂

About Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr., the revered civil- rights activist renowned for his stirring “I Have a Dream” speech, was arrested more than 20 times for his part in civil-disobedience actions. He was born on January 15, 1929. He believed in the power of nonviolent protest, and organized the Montgomery Bus Boycott to protest Jim Crow segregation laws. The protest was successful, leading to a change in the law and cementing King’s leadership in the emerging movement. He was assassinated on April 4, 1968.

    Wow. As soon as I finish taking care of the lawn I’d be right back to cleaning house if it were mine. Good painting, Beth!
