Charlie Brown statue painted by me 3 years ago for RR Square, Santa Rosa, CA
Brings back memories. Good ole Charlie Brown, the creation of our local hero Charles Schultz has been immortalized in more ways than you can imagine. No fewer than 50 of these statues were painted by artists in a big airplane hangar that year. Why am I showing it now? Well, the little 5 ft. tall guy still stands there with his arm out on the street corner where he’s been for all these years now. Innumerable pictures have been posed by his side with children and grandmothers alike. I remember the crook in my neck and sore knees I got from the job, which took me 4 days! but also the satisfaction of watching people’s faces when they saw their familiar hero dressed up this way and big enough to relate to as a friend. So please accept Charlie’s hand waving to you as a very personal and friendly greeting.
