|Orphan Boy or Red No. 1|
Orphan Boy is a first in a series of twenty where red is a predominate color in each piece with the exception of two works. Orphan Boy is one of the two. Since I created the series as a whole I named this one slightly different but then I thought that it needed to be the first in the series. Red is not a predominant color in this piece. Thus you see two titles with a secondary title being Red No. 1.
There will be similarities in the twenty pieces. For instance, I used butterfly graffiti in most of them. I also either stamped or stenciled the letters X, O, or Y on each of them. I will chat about other similarities as the series is unveiled.
The vintage photo comes from a friend's family collection....remember Soda Grandma a while back? This photo was given to me during that commission. No one knows who the boy is hence I am calling him an orphan.
This week a friend shared that her son was now a minimalist. He has eliminated most of what he has acquired in life and now is very careful about the quality of what he purchases and the amount of his purchases. I found out that there is a film called Minimalism that looks intriguing to me. I watched the preview of the film and now have the full film version on my Netflix's list to watch.
