Coach yard

I'm playing along with the April challenge at ARTastic.  This is the art inspiration this month, an amazing painting titled We Will Remember Them:

The criteria is TYPOGRAPHY.   This is my layout:

I took inspiration from the feeling of heritage/nostalgia.  I used a blocked text background, consisting of a mix of typefaces.

October Afternoon Sasparilla - High Noon patterned paper
Prima Welcome to Paris textured canvas alphabets
Chromacryl White acrylic paint

Thank you for visiting my blog!
