"Cafe Aretha" Art Nouveau Melinda poster by Bernie, 7/14/2007
« on: August 30, 2007, 11:58:02 am »
This poster is my creation of 14/15 July, 2007, based on an evocative photo taken by Laci, a Blake Lewis fan, in Birmingham the preceding week. It pays homage to the Art Nouveau style of Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, Alfons Mucha, Jules Cheret, and others, and celebrates the world-class magnitude of Melinda's greatness, as well as her "old-fashioned" artistic and personal virtues.

It was posted to her MySpace with a prose laudation that I may or may not bring here.

My quest is to make Melinda happy, in my "own language"---then to bring joy to all of you, and your-all comments in the past, when I first created these works, and now continue to gratify me deeply.

Oh, oh yeah, that -- what'd I do with that!?!? Thank you so much for your role in making it happen!

Boy, you bet I do!  I should upload the scan now and put it here...it was amazing, a touching of my idiosyncratic art to hers...

On Tuesday, 28 August 2007, through the dear caring and effort of Vicki and Donna, Donna brought an 8.5x11 glossy copy of this poster to Melinda at the concert in E Rutherford NJ, which Melinda generously signed, recalling me to thank me for the long poem displayed in this major-topic:

She's sooo cute......

Thanks, M_R87, for your kind words. I'm sure she, ever humble, is still acclimating to accept the kind of praise which is really due her, let alone my effusive word bouquets ....
