Fashion Forward

collage with oil paint, 8x10

One of our neighbors is a dealer of high end vintage posters.  Over the years, we have gone to his garage sales and bought some cool old posters, like of Push Pin or Olivetti ads, for a great price.  This last sale he had a stack of 1930s-50s French posters that had seen better days.  Too worn for resale, but cool enough for collage, so John bought me the pile for next to nothing.  This collage has elements from one of the posters.
