Ah, the good old days of running around in your polka-dot bikini, riding the Ferris wheel, and climbing tall trees.
Okay, fine. You never did any of that stuff. Point is, summer’s only just over, but it feels like a lifetime ago.
Recapture that carefree spirit with the work of local artist Linda Plaisted of Manymuses Studio. She layers drawings, photographs, and paintings to create art with ephemeral appeal.
At sights like carnivals, tree swings, and baseball fields, Plaisted captures images that she tints and layers with bright colors and vintage-cast borders to create retro scenes that would fit right into a Tim Burton set.
You can also find more haunting images: open fields, hovering crows, and Civil War battlefields, often with old, dust-covered viewfinders.
Either way, you’ll give thanks for the memories.
