Mr. Yellowstripes and the Fish, Mr. Yellowstripes and the Bird (diptych)
Mr. Yellowstripes diptych. Acrylic on deep wrapped canvases, each 4" x 12", private collection. Last year happened to see an amazing pottery vase from the 60's (Scandanavian maybe?) with stick-like ladies and animals painted on it. Then Mr. Yellowstripes sort of drew himself out on these canvases last week--so I know (sort of) where he came from. I adopted a color scheme I found in a book of mid-century posters.
