California modern

California modern 24 x 30 acrylic on canvas 2012
I have been doing a lot of color experimentation lately. The title of this work comes from the inspiration of mid century plastics. The color and simple design are from my fascination with this retro look. The cool thing, is that I actually experienced this era, and was not only educated with a mid century philosophy, I actually lived it. (I am showing my age here!)
I must say though, the design and overall outlook of the age was much more up-beat and happy. I am not interested nor capable of the depression that seems to permeate pop culture today. Just give me love, peace and we used to say,.........far out,... super cool, and groovy!
