Keeping New York City Clean

Watercolor .......sold
Hi, it has been a while since I last posted. I have been busy with other projects and life in general. There are not enough hours in a day. A friend of mine had a post on her blog called The Lady At the Park on March 20. check it out at Well , I thought I would keep that theme going today. I found an article that quoted Dr. Martin Luther King saying , " If a man is called to be a street sweeper he should sweep streets as Michelangelo painted or Beethoven composed music or  Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep so well that others would say " Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well. " May we each do the jobs given to us well and full of joy. These guys on the streets of  New York City do a great job .


  1. And I hope they know we all appreciate their hard work! Thanks for the great painting, and the sentiment behind it.

  2. Truly love love love your painting! I so appreciate watercolor because I don't do it! Yours is wonderful! love the quote and yes we all need to be reminded to do whatever we do with all our heart!

  3. Diane,
    Beautiful watercolor. I admire your compositions and subject matter. Like the sentiment in this also- be proud of whatever you do.
