Two new releases by Jodie McCallum. One shows antique cars at Put-in-Bay, this is a Sunday afternoon ritual and attracts hundreds if not thousands of kids of ALL ages. Candy is thrown from the cars to eager kids waiting on the sidewalks. Jodie has taken a little "Artistic License," as she is showing children throwing candies to the older folk - kids like to fantisize you know!
The second Illustration shows the children of Lakeside, OH enjoying the end of another fun summer. Some are walking home from the beach, while others are enjoying painting, reading, planting flowers, birding and a host of other fun things. This little community is called the Chautaugua of Lake Erie, as it is a learing center to enrich the quality of life for all people, to also, foster traditional Christian values and nurture relationships through opportunity for renewal and growth. Lakeside has been preserving these values and heritage for over 135 years. So welcome "Sunday Afternoon at Put-in-Bay" and "Lakeside-The Chautaugua of Lake Erie"
The original artwork and signed and numbered, Limited Edition Prints are available.
