ID: Maxfield Parrish

Mailing Due Date: July 11th, 2007
4.5"w x 4"h

There were a lot of great themes in this month's mingle list, but I opted for Maxfield Parrish. Love his art. I scanned a few images from an oversized poster book I have of his artwork to use as coloring templates. Also found on the web the image of the nude and the word "Parrish". I really liked the "P" in that word (I won't say anymore).  I made a slight faux pas and placed a fold in the wrong place so I covered it up with a strip of the orangey yellow cardstock. That fold down was also a tad short so I figured I'd add a piece of the same yellow cardstock at the bottom. Voila, It made a nice border effect. The arm sticking over the edge is a second arm which I cut out and glued to the main image to use as closure for the fold down. 


I colored in the background with a Derwent Inktense watercolor pencil in a bright orange.



The back is a very subdued printout which I then colored in and added my particulars. I just realized I used images of people reading books which is basically what's to be done with this mingle. The right side is a match book style closure for an accordion folded pull out (about 26") history of Maxfield.
