Thanks PJC and Wendy, here is my "Papua New Guinea storyboard" for the Mary Blair tribute: Its a Small World After All 2012 at Boomerang Gallery, Heebee Jeebee in Petaluma. approx 5 1/2"h X 13 1/2"L photo collage shows Sepik crocs, Yamok hornbills, Hunstein Mtns cult hooks, Sepik drum, gope boards and female ancestoral spirits that are painted on the approx 3/4" deep side of the piece. Love Mary Blair's highly influential work. Had loads of fun gazing at my copy of the Art and Flair of Mary Blair and the Mary Blair Vacu Form red riding hoods i have in my collection. I played around stylistically with her different periods after her early watercolor phase, going between softer haze for the center and stronger graphics for the surrounding; i think the sides of the "canvas (bamboo pressed wood clock)" are more closely a marriage of my style and hers. Though a big fan of her wprk, definitely a bit of a stylistic stretch for me. Hopes ya dig it!
