The last painting in this batch has to do with an annual festival that takes place in old Memphis during the month of September. It is known as the Cooper-Young Festival. Along both sides of two intersecting narrow roads, artists and charitable organizations and individuals set up their tents and tables. The Saturday I went, the streets were very crowded. Anyway, the 2005 festival poster lead me to this stained glass sun design. The painting didn’t go according to plan, but it captured the event for me.

acrylic on canvas, 5" x 5"


  1. I have always loved stained glass. It is so pretty when it captures the light. I think you did a good job with this, Mo. It does have a kind of stained glass feel to it. :-)

    Thank you.

    'Glad to know that the image reads correctly. I was trying to capture the spirit of the event.
