Friends gave me this drop cloth which they had used when spaying patio furniture with black paint. I thought this was an interesting design and I decided not to use it as a drop cloth on this side. I took a digital photograph of the design and aded color to it the photograph using the software Photoshop.

This is a continuation of my previous post showing covers of vinyl albums ,most of which my father,a radio engineer, brought home from radio station WTMV,after these albums were discarded. Stamped on the back of some of these albums is, not for sale. Most are from the 1950’s and 1960’s. I chose to show the albums which interest me for their graphic design, illustrations, and paintings.
