A Vintage Car and a Glacial Norwegian Lake – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor and Ink

I had fun with this one.  It’s a combo of two photographs from Rozzi at WetCanvas.  The doors to the car were open in the photo and there were two guys standing on the running boards.  I left all that pesky stuff out.  Oh, and of course the car was black.   🙂

About James Bryant Conant

James Bryant Conant, the American chemist and educator, is known both for his role in the Manhattan Project — which developed the first nuclear weapons — and for his innovative tenure as president of Harvard University. Harvard had been a finishing school for the rich; Conant turned it into a world-class research university and created aptitude tests to choose students by ability. These tests became the basis for the SAT. He was born in Massachusetts in 1893 and died in New Hampshire in 1978.

Same Day, Different Car – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor & Sharpie

This is another vintage car from the Rathdowney Heritage Festival, Queensland, Australia.    The photo was by Christine (Crispur) at WetCanvas.  I think the car was a deep dark burgundy… almost black.  But not in Bethville.  😀

Again, I apologize for not replying to comments lately.  The sign shop is keeping me too busy, but I LOVE every comment and it makes me so happy to hear from you!

About Louis L’Amour

Louis L’Amour, the author known for his pulp westerns, wrote more than 100 novels in his lifetime. Born in North Dakota in 1908 as Louis LaMoore, he worked across the southwestern U.S. on a string of backbreaking jobs including longshoreman, elephant handler, and cattle skinner. He saw his writing as akin to telling tales by a campfire and wanted to be remembered simply as a good storyteller. He won the Medal of Freedom in 1984 and died in 1988.

This is a 5″ x 7″ watercolor and sharpie painting I did from a photo by Christine (Crispur) at WetCanvas.  Of course, I got there early, before all the people and stuff arrived.  The only guy I saw there was the orange cone guy and he was doing an awesome job!  🙂

About Carl Jung

Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist who originated such well-known psychological concepts as the archetype and the collective unconscious, has provided inspiration to people ranging from Joseph Campbell to Bill Wilson, the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. He was born in 1875 in a small town; he studied with Sigmund Freud before parting ways due to the radical difference in their views of human nature. Jung is considered second only to Freud in his influence on modern psychology, particularly in the area of dream analysis. He died in 1961.
