Playing with image, font, color, and cut-out. This is a technique I did first with a photo of my niece.  Now, I’ve attempted it with one of my mom.  She was sweet enough to let me experiment with her image.

So, I commissioned this Christina Aguilera painting by local Austin artist, Robert Poschmann, in January, after Etta James passed.  The painting is just the Christina Aguilera part.  I just wanted to show where the idea for my concept originally came from and to show a comparison between the two.  I had the idea long before her death.  Since Etta is Xtina’s musical hero and “Beautiful” is, arguably, her “At Last,” and now that she was a little bit healthier, I thought it would make a great pop art piece and it just made sense to do it then.  I actually wanted it to look more pop art/photo real, but I think that got lost in translation in the early stages of communicating my concept back-and-forth with the artist. Anyway, my idea was always to have it be an auction piece for a good cause.  Perhaps, one close to Xtina’s or Ms. James’ heart? Or maybe there’s an Etta James foundation now?  But, I don’t have a specific cause or event for it to be a part of.  I’d like to keep it local to Austin, if at all possible.  Any ideas?
