This is my latest painting, French Pop, 18 x 24 acrylic on canvas. It is for my 87 year old grandmother who wanted “an abstract with a juxtaposition of various shapes” in a color palette of turquoise, red, cream, black and white. She has an amazing collection of antique furniture (my great grandmother was an antiques dealer!) as well as a killer sense of style. She loves the tension of a modern geometric piece in bold colors with traditional furniture pieces. How cool is she?! I named the piece because the color palette has a retro feel to me…all that aqua and red! And I couldn’t stop thinking of France, when looking at it…in fact I added the black and white and red and white stripes while thinking of the French Riviera. I put on some 1960’s French Pop music and voila…I had my name!
