a better tomorrow mixed media painting by John Dyess

This image is a mixed media collage I started several years ago and this week I continued working on it. It may or may not be finished. I used images, I found in my paper reference files, from the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties. I thoughts on things we just had to buy during this time period.

detail 3 from a new tomorrow

I wanted to show texture and a distressed look in this painting to show how soon those bright shinning things we need fade away and become obsolete.
