Recently, it was just me and my cousin Linda for our Tuesday breakfast. We ended up in LeClaire, Iowa -- enjoying the new Scott County Freedom rock, recently placed on the Mississippi Riverfront.
It took me awhile before I realized our rock was painted by the same artist, Ray Sorensen...
|Every side of the rock has a different scene...|
|This rock focuses on Scott County|
|Beautiful river setting...|
|Me, taking a picture of Linda, taking a picture of me...|
How our county came to have it's own Freedom Rock is a fascinating story about a talented young artist who has figured out a way to make a living with his art.
His goal is to paint a rock for every county in the State of Iowa. He charges $5,000 per county. Here's his website, explaining how it works:Freedom Rock, painted by Ray Sorensen. It's about a man and his art.
Doing what he loves to support his family...honoring our veterans...and yes, people, my favorite thing -- MARKETING.
I am in awe. Genius!! Go Bubba!!
