rocking at the sock hop

Many of my pieces are inspired from car shows, sock hops, and other events that celebrate the Americana and the 1950's. Last year I was thrilled to win tickets to the Rock and Rod Festival in Monterey CA. From that event came numerous pieces that can be seen in my 1950's and Figures of the 50's albums. This year they asked if they could use my painting for their poster, program, tickets and other promotional marketing for the event. I was thrilled.

This year I was able to attend Fri. evening. It was great to see the classic cars and enjoy the musical sock hop. There were wonderful people dressed in their best vintage attire and Elvis even made an appearance.

Thanks Monterey Rock and Rod Festival! You've provided yet again an endless supply of photo references for my future paintings. Be sure to check back in a few months to see what I create from them.
