Slugbug Green, No Slugbacks!
We've all heard the familiar saying. And if you're like me, you've felt the inevitable pinch, punch, or slug, for that matter, for not being the one to see the car first. Having two boys, this is a popular game in my car. Luckily, being strapped into a booster seat and held back in seat belts prevents the two of them from being able to reach me in the driver's seat.
Every year the local high school parking lot becomes a Volkswagen mecca, filled with the all too familiar VW beetle as well as the popular VW bus. Last year I took my camera along and captured some very colorful VW bugs. Most of the colors reminded me of summer, my favorite season. Having been on my "to do" list for awhile, I finally got around to painting these cute little cars.
A long admirer and fan of watercolors with pen and ink, I decided to pull out my Sharpie Extra Fine Point and got to work adding detail to the piece. I can't call it finished yet, as I need to add a background. I got so excited about adding the ink to the painting that I neglected my background!
I will continue to work on the "bugs" and post once it's completed. Happy start of the summer to you all!
