Pink Shirt

Pink Shirt

Some time ago I made a stencil with a much larger barking dog a la Keith Haring.  I pared the dog down for this piece.  I love Keith's icons and his history of becoming famous.  Unfortunately, the world lost an artist way before his time.  Keith Haring died of AIDS when he was only 32 years of age.  Pink Shirt and poem honor him.

Stunning in its brevity.

Very nice tribute John- He was a favorite- I used him as the motivation for projects in my elementary art classes.
