Art Contests Accepted Artists
Austin , Texas USA
Nostalgia and the tradition of a gift inspired a still life painted in the “trompe l’oeil” style that captures what was very good for me in my childhood – a “Steve Canyon, Jet Helmet” with an old photo of my great grandfather “Mr. C. E. Pound”, whom I never met.
When I was 9 years old, I received a “Steve Canyon, Jet Helmet” for Christmas. I remember running around the house wearing the helmet and speaking into the microphone that was just tissue paper. It cost $2.98 in 1959. In 2014 while looking back on my past, I decided to paint the box that the helmet came in along with a photograph of my great grandfather.
