Many years ago I went to a screening of John Waters’ film “Hairspray.” When the new version came out, I saw that too. In the new version a 50’s star symbol was used on the set of the television dance show. The poster for the new film had a lot of bright colors. Anyway I wanted to use a star symbol with bright colors.

acrylic on canvas, 5" x 5"

First I separated the canvas into four squares of color. I then created a star shape over them with various pastel colors. Lastly I filled in the rest with pastel versions of the background colors. I’m a sucker for bright colors.


  1. I love the bright colors too, Mo. This is cool--very cheery. :)
