Graffiti Bridge

This is "Graffiti Bridge", oil on canvas, 18 x 24 inches. With this piece, I invented these young characters making art on the walls of the bridge, like modern hyroglifics. I have wanted to include graffiti in one of my paintings for a long time, since so many of the places that I paint are often old, and usually have graffiti on them anyway. But it then becomes an important part of the image. So my graffiti tells a story.



Cool Tony - especially Fritz the Cat. (Really enjoyed this piece, for I too had wanted to paint some graffiti images.)

Nice story.

Thanks Susan... painting graffiti was harder than I thought it would be. I don't even want to admit how long I labored over the decision of what kind of graffiti I wanted to put there on the wall!
