This painting was an attempted tribute to my father who passed away. The text includes lyrics from relevant songs, as well as quotes from written articles he had published in his lifetime. The background and tree are watercolor, the leaves and some details are marker. The words were transferred mostly with wax paper and printer ink, though some are direct pen, and the barely visible music at the bottom was transferred with a clorox wipe, just to see what would happen. My only real regrets on this piece was that it wasn't on watercolor paper, and some of the words didn't transfer well, so I had to go over them with pen, which didn't look as good.
11x14, mixed media.
