A Glimpse of Poster Art
The tropical bay scene is comprised of hundreds of overlapping cut and pasted logos of various sizes on black paper. In the main cloud there are 40 logos alone. The black paper lends itself to the night scene and the larger logos act as higher terrain, or as hills. Although this is a two color paint scheme, the placement and overlapping of various size logos, add a sense of depth to the picture.
The table painting is a copy of the original acrylic, ‘Nanny’s Kitchen’. Here it is an oil pastel on paper. Oil pastels allow for more expressive application, the build-up of texture and faster productivity.
The ‘Grandpa’ is also an oil pastel on paper. A copy of the original in acrylic. The only thing that topped this day was a call from the ‘Flower Guy’ who paved a way for me to share the ‘Grandpa’ art piece in grand form as a 30′ mural (more on that in the next article).
