Back on September 13th I posted the North Carolina print (see below), the first in a series of “State” prints that I’ve undertaken. Well, here are the beginnings of the second print in the series...VIRGINIA. Obviously this is still in the pen & ink stage awaiting some color.

And no, I’m not hung up on Cardinals and Dogwoods. Both states have them as their state bird and tree. Wonder who’s copying whom?

As soon as I get up the nerve to select and add the colors that I’ll use, I’ll post the finished product.

Big Government...at it again

If you are still under the delusion that government works for us and is always mindful of our rights and interests then the following story will no doubt cause you little concern. If you are still going through your daily lives with the pollyanna attitude of “They can’t do that!” you will not be alarmed at what is discussed in the story. If however, you have come to realize that there is an agenda at play...often behind the scenes and un-noticed until too late...you will recognize a familiar pattern at work.

New Obama rules may prohibit citizens from fishing the nation’s oceans, coastal areas, great lakes and even inland waters...
