Flamingos At Noon- 12th Original Cut...
I was inspired to do this one for several reasons, but primarily for these particular three reasons:
1) Anthony's cousin, Susan L., mentioned some of the houses in Florida being the color of Pink Flamingos (I remember that from many visits and a 6 month residency),
2) I came across flamingos on our paper towels that I thought I might try to replicate, and
3) in the end, my spurring inspiration was watching Sanford and Son, season 1, "The Barracuda", with my family. There was a wooden plaque on the wall behind Lamont as he talked on the phone. There they were, two flamingos that I just HAD to get onto paper.
Inspiration can truly come from anywhere as long as we pay attention to the details.
On a side note, I thought the title was fitting since it is my 12th original cut, done on the 12th of June, with the sun positioned right above their heads (around noon). Funny, huh?
