Sea oats and magnolia leaves are great fodder for some artists but not for me. My imagination is just too much off the chain for that so I opt, many times, for painting the weird, the wacky, the lovely, and kids love it! This piece, “Is That You Bob Marley?” is one that would inspire wonder, questions, and make a child think. That type of art is powerful to have and expose children to because it takes them from ordinary to the imaginative extraordinary. As a child, children’s illustrations fascinated me and the weirder ones always got my attention.
I could always say, it started with a door, a flag, and a rabbit, 😉
Patterned, painted gesso paper, watercolor crayons, pencils, graphite, and diluted white acrylic.
Up close detail, you can see the patterns well here.
It did start with a door, a flag, and a rabbit.
I am healing well enough to graduate from the bed to the table!
Oh, is it him or not?
