Like most artists, I went through various phases for a while, searching for my own style. Art Nouveau was one of them, until I realized I’m just not that much of a curly-cue guy. No John Held Jr., either, with his way cool flappers and sheiks in wide-legged trousers – the Influencers of the Roarin’ Twenties. Norman Rockwell? Nope. Can’t paint the folks willing to model for me, because there might be a total of three? Four?
But like it all turned out to be wow, you know? And I think I’m really vibing with what I can do for folks just wanting to quietly de-stress for a minute or two.
Stay tuned, hipsters. There are more artists who paint or draw to the Beatles’ music than will ever admit it.
