    Happy 4th of July

    Flag by Jasper Johns -1954
    "One night I dreamed that I painted a large American flag" Johns had said.  This iconic piece of artwork is created from plywood, canvas and newspaper.  Johns used encaustic paint, a method of mixing molten bees wax and pigment.  This technique created bumps, smudges and smears bringing the art off the canvas and creating a 3 dimensional effect also allowing the viewer to see the newspaper and canvas beneath the color.
