Painting on Everything!

New piece to share! Here’s a girl portrait titled “Tattooed Matilda” that’s part of my series painted on an old collection of Encyclopedia’s that belonged to by grandfather artist Ralph Johnstone. The books are from the 1930’s and lovely! But with such obsolete information! So, just loving the color and texture of the books I’ve decided to re-purpose them – turning them into paintings. As for now I’m just painting the covers, but as time progresses, I’ll start adorning the insides as well.

This one is for sale in my Etsy store!
