Crayons on Aluminum Printing Plate

Today I finished this painting, "Crayons" oil on aluminum newspaper printing plate, 28.5" x 19.5."
A few weeks ago I found this this aluminum printing plate at a junk shop in rural Northern Virginia. The plate is from a Harrisonburg, VA newspaper dated April, 1979. I've painted the crayon box in the past but this one is one of my favorite versions. What I like most is the contrast of the color crayons verses the black and white of a newspaper printing plate.

This piece will be heading to the Bridge Art Fair in Miami, Florida in early December where I'm represented by the Fraser Gallery.
