Cover Before Striking

Cover Before Striking

Happy 4th of July!  In each of the pieces in this series I sanded the words to distress them.  I wanted to create a look that resembles billboards that have been neglected.  Those billboards use to be around everywhere it seems.  Now they are being replaced by electronic ones.

This man is a Tonkawa Native American and the photo of him was taken in 1898 and it was colorized some time later.

I love everything about this one.
I studied and decided, in my opinion,
every bit was necessary to the whole.
Bravo, John.
