Graffiti Series #20

Graffiti Series #20 
I am fascinated by vintage bathing attire.  When one considers what is acceptable attire for swimming now versus the modest attire of years gone by I have to smile.  I particularly like the balance in this piece.....three swimmers and three men on the porch.  Maybe at first glance you would think that is six figures, oh no, an even number.  Look closely and you see a little girl looking up at one of the men who most likely is her father.  The red stamp grounds my eye bringing it full circle.  The odd number of three images also balances the piece nicely.

It's the white circles I find completing the pattern.
