This is a simple cartoon I painted with watercolors and tempra in cake form yesterday. I love oceans, sailboats, yachts, canoes, rafts, paddle boats, pontoon boats, motor boats--every known boat to mankind! So, I am reminding world that winter is almost over, spring is around the corner and people will be taking their boats to lakes, rivers, and oceans. And some people will be going to festivals. I intended this sketch to be cartoon-like since I cartoon intermittently to make people smile. Copyrighted, This cartoon is watercolor on cardstock and I signed it, photographed it, uploaded it and posted it today 5 March 2016 to this blog of mine, which is only one of the my blogs that I post art I made too. If you want to read the cartoon story i wrote and illustrated you can see it as the top post on my blog: https://cartooning-by-gloriapoole.blogspot.com and the story is named "The Adventures of Lady Bugs that give picnics". Also, scroll to read info about current and upcoming festivals of music, food, dance, bands and fun! .
