Thumbs up On A Rock In Rural Iowa

On A Rock In Rural Iowa
Patriotic Rock:

The Patriotic rock, located at the Schildberg Construction - Jefferson Quarry and painted by Ray "Bubba" Sorensen. The rock was a local graffiti rock for twenty years for the surrounding schools. Out of respect, the local students have not defaced the painting in the past five years since Bubba has been painting his tribute.

"I love my country, and I do it out of respect for the veterans." Quoted Ray "Bubba" Sorensen.

Bubba draws a sketch of his idea on paper and then draws the design by free hand onto the rock. This takes him anywhere from one to three weeks to paint and he has been doing it for five consecutive years. Bubba is interested in military history and gets his ideas from books, movies, previous artwork and images by other artists.

The rock is located on Highway 25, just 1 mile south of Interstate-80 near Greenfield, exit 86.
If traveling from Greenfield junction 25 & 92, take Hwy 25 north 12 miles. Pictures of the Patriotic Rock in 2003.
