engagement banner
Acrylics on printed fabric
42" x 72"
A sweet interlude in the studio,
this banner was created for
Jeanette and Librado, and
presented to them by their Uncle
Marty on the occasion of their
engagement to be married.  
This was a wonderful
opportunity for me to pull out my
favorite beat-up type reference
book from 1973 (David Gates)
as inspiration for an evening of
hand-lettering.  And a special
treat was the chance to
research Hawaiian fabric prints,
resulting in locating this
wonderful border-print cotton  
from Fabric Mart in Aiea, Hawaii.
