Harold's Auto Center

On a trip to Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, Pam and I were advised to stop by Harold's Auto Center by Rick Kilby. We stopped so I could sketch on the evening we arrived. Unfortunately it almost immediately started to rain so I cut off the sketch as is. I liked that the dinosaur had red eyes. He isn't menacing though. Instead every line is rounded and smooth offering a soft appealing shape. If I were ever in need of auto repair out that way I would most certainly stop here. It had a Flintstones appeal.

After this we wandered to find the motel which is on the river that comes from the Weeki Wachee spring. The room was nautically themed like an ocean front room with fishing nets and shells. Rich had lent us a kayak, so we had two kayaks to explore the spring the next day.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
