“There is a magic in that little world, home; it is a mystic circle that surrounds comforts and virtues never known beyond its hallowed limits.” -Robert Southey
Let me outline this for you: Kentucky is full of awesome. From the birthplace of Bluegrass and Lincoln to the edge of the Appalachians, there’s no place like a Kentucky home. The boundaries of the state are like a container full of rippling green fields and lush forests, honey warm bourbon, rich chocolate-hued horses wearing ruby roses, the obsidian sheen of coal, and the glitter of gold. Among the other fabulousness, I’ve included the state bird, flower, and tree. And really, how wicked is that state motto?
The great colors for this piece came from that great vintage postcard (source here), a shot of the Rathskeller in downtown Louisville’s Seelbach. If you’d like a print (or a t-shirt, tote bag, or throw pillow) of my Kentucky “State Lines” design you can visit my Society6 store.
United we stand, divided we fall!
EDIT: If you’d like to win a print of this piece, head on over to this entry on my FB page, like and share the post (and please comment telling me you’ve shared). I’ll be announcing the winner after 3 p.m. EST on July, 22nd.
