Saturday Is For Art
The above painting was inspired by the cover of a Vanity Fair magazine and the work of Romare Bearden (1911-1988). Bearden used many different materials in his creation of his pieces of art. While this is a painting and not a collage, I nevertheless, copied Bearden's use of solid black for areas of the body as he had done in his piece "Saxophone Improvisation" (1986). This painting is 24"x16" and is painted in acrylic on MDO plywood.
