How funny, just went on a "country drive" this weekend and here is one of the photos I took. Was so happy I got to share it on MMTPT today! hehe.....details...
Actually I went to visit Curt, he has been helping out on the farm. What a surprise it was to see him driving the tractor out of the barn! I didn't know he could even drive! hehe
By the looks of it, that tractor has been sitting for awhile. That chicken has laid an egg on it. hehe
This scene reminds me of a summer I spent on my step-grandma's Nebraska farm. It was the best summer ever!!!
Card details...after drawing and printing out the scene, I colored it with Bic markers and prisma pencils. Designs on the hills were made with a stylus before coloring.
Well, sorry I am a little late today....bought me a Hoover Floormate and couldn't wait to give it a try on my tile floors. It makes cleaning the floor a whole lot easier. Yeah for me! hehe......TFL :0)

Very cute scene...how did you know I need directions to the "Funny Farm"? I love how you did the swirls and stripes on the landscape.
And how is it at a certain age we actually get excited about cleaning machines and supplies?

You and Curt spend so much time together it's surprising he snuck off to get his drivers license without you knowing. Mind you he does look a bit sneaky and he is looking carefully around the corner so maybe that rascally cow doesn't have a license and probably has no idea how to drive a tractor.
Love your Funny Farm and wonderful story.

So cute. It's good to see that multi-talented Curt working on that funny farm! Kathy this is just amazing as all of your Curt cards are. Peggy will love it. I hope she learns you drew it all. I mean all I can draw are straight lines and that's only if I use a ruler!!
ABSOLUTE FUN and CUTENESS, Cathy! Curt is quite the cowboy! Love all the colors, patterns, rolling hills, the horse, chicken and all the details down to the tractor tire tracks and green sprigs of grass! As always, wonderful art! :)
