Artist of the week IV

This week’s artist is Max and here he is with his favorite piece.

It is one of his three Farmers Market’s works that we have kicking about. Obviously it is the one in the middle.

I posted all three because you can really see he has his own distinctive style. He naturally gravitates to the blues and greens with an occasional punch of red. There is a huge bucket of markers to choose from, but he always gets the same colors. His weekly stop at the art table run by Polka Dot Arts is the highlight of Max’s visit to the 17th Street Farmers’ Market.

Last week the fine folks with Polka Dot Art had run out of the foam stickers. But they still had the huge bucket of magic markets and the bingo daubers. He loves using the bingo daubers. He grabs a green one, twists off the cap and happily pounds his paper, leaving a series of green dots. He will then fill in with a magic marker to complete his picture. When he is done he thrusts it in my hands to carry and instructs me to put it on the fridge when we get home.

When I asked him about his art he said he “made it at the food place.” I asked him if he likes it and he said “YES!” and bounced away.
