Last week was the 110th annual Corder Picnic - a 3 day festival that includes a rodeo, a carnival, parade and local events (kids' bike race, burn out contest for those with too much testosterone, volley ball tournament, etc.) I was in charge of building a float for the Home and Community Club, of which I am a member. I came up with the theme, "Movies in the Park", to promote a free entertainment provided by the Corder Park Board (who do not meet often enough to create their own float).
I sketched Tom and Jerry on an industrial shower curtain (hotel surplus) and then my kids, Ashlyn and her boys did the painting. I did the final outlining. My father-in-law, bless him, built the frame for the "movie screen". The man is a saint for giving of his time to indulge me in my project.
"Most Attractive Non Profit"
And now we have totally awesome art in our living room.
My son especially loves it -it was his idea to bring it into the house.
Move over, Roy Lichtenstein!
