Brynn's Painted Dresser

A dresser painted in the style of 60's posters with various imagery and song lyrics and qoutes.

A painting project completed August 2007. 
A very tedious, but definitely one of the painting projects I am very proud of!

My friend Brynn and I have always been a fan of 60's Psychedelic posters promoting musicians like Bob Dylan and Bob Marley or promoting love, peace and harmony. So I was excited when she requested I paint her dresser with that Hippie style and groovy-ness. She gave me pages and pages of some of her favorite lyrics and quotes from musicians and authors such as U2, Elton John, The Beatles, Cat Stevens and Hunter S. Thompson.Brynn trusted me adding some of my own imagery and words in addition to hers.

Thank you Brynn for for being a groovy girl and giving me a cool project.
