    Wow!!!

    Can't believe this was done by a teenager!!

    There is a huge rock near a gravel pit on Hwy.25 in rural Iowa.
    For generations, kids have painted slogans, names, and obscenities on this rock, changing its character many times. A few months back, the rock received its latest paint job, and since then it has been left completely undisturbed.?

    It's quite an impressive sight. Be sure to scroll down and check out the multiple photos of the rock.

    I thought the flag was draped over the rock, but it's not. It's actually painted on the rock too.








    The Artist.

    That's the 2003 painting.

    Here's the website with all 9 years of paintings.

    That"s awesome! Someone at work sent that to me a while back and I couldn't believe the detail. Definitely a talented guy.

    Very cool!

    The artist and I share the same last name. I so rarely see it anywhere else but on my mail.

    RightTurnClyde Sorensen. Has a nice ring to it. In the phonebook I guess it would be Sorensen, RightTurnClyde.
