I was inspired to do a boy piece after meeting a fellow Artisan at Homestead last week. She asked if I had anything that could go in a boys room and I really didn't, so I got to work & this is what I came up with:
When I think about boys, rock n roll and puppy dogs come to my mind so that's what I added. The background of my canvas is layer after layer of acrylic paint, gesso and misc. papers. The guitar, stars and flourishes are all stamps.
I found the perfect photo and printed it on matte photo paper, then cut it out and adhered it with Mod Podge. Once it was dry, I went around it with an orange oil pastel and added some rubons to balance out the composition.
The quote is a stamp by Cloud9 Design, it reads:
innocence of babyhood
Dignity of manhood,
WE FIND A
OF A boy.
