On the scene was  fun black and white painting that I made a while back. This painting combines the future with the past, showing Aretha Franklin in her younger days.

While the painting shows Aretha Franklin in your younger years, you can see the Futuristic city around her.

What I wanted to do with this painting is capture her coming on the scene, and I think this painting does a good job of capturing this.

In many ways I feel as if I’m coming on to the scene, so this painting speaks to me.

The original was sold, but prints of this painting are available at the online store here: bclarkstore

When I was younger I would go to the different book stores and pick up different how to draw books and just read. Fast forward today, and I still enjoy painting/drawing, and most importantly inspiring others through the arts.
