“See Rock City!” Colored Pencil on Ampersand Smooth Surface Art Board – 6 1/2″ x 10″

Please share...

I did this fun image for the November Colored Pencil Magazine contest. I decided to plop the little blue house they provided as a target image down in North Georgia where you see “See Rock City” painted on hundreds of barns, stores and billboards. (check out and visit the amazing Rock City in Chattanooga, Tennessee! (http://www.seerockcity.com/). Yes it’s not as precise as I usually do but I decided to go “Grandma Moses” on this one and let a bit of the primative George out for a few days…I’ll go back in my more  traditional work after this departure!!!

“See Rock City”
