This Guy Can Carry a Tune!  – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor & Prismacolor Pen

Carry is the word this week for Illustration Friday.    I am enjoying IF, because it makes me think outside the box.  I painted this from a photo from Crispur (Christine) at WetCanvas.  Christine lives in Australia and she had some great photos to paint from this weekend.  I worked on Saturday, but on Sunday I got to paint some of them.  Yay!

About Samuel Johnson

Samuel Johnson, the sharp-witted British essayist, wrote the first English language dictionary; his definitions still form the backbone of current dictionaries. He was born in Staffordshire in 1709. Johnson married a widow 20 years his senior and lived in poverty before achieving success with his essays when he was in his forties. Later in life, he befriended the young James Boswell, whose Life of Johnson became the quintessential English biography. Johnson died in 1784.
