Description


With original artwork showcased in a collectible children's book, dive into the vibrant kaleidoscopic world of one of Louisiana's most talented artists, Becky Fos.

From her famous crowned pelicans, to portraits of powerful figures like Louis Armstrong and Frida Kahlo, Becky Fos is one of the most well-known and acclaimed contemporary artists in Louisiana. Her paintings grace the walls of homes and businesses all across the region, and now children will be able to study a wide selection of her paintings up close and as often as they'd like.

Through gentle verse, The Colorful World of Becky Fos details Becky's artistic process and techniques. Children will get an incredible behind-the-scenes perspective of one of Louisiana's rising stars-they'll learn that she sketches her paintings first and that, instead of a paintbrush, she uses a palette knife-a tool that she glides across the canvas in flat strokes of thick, layered color.

Becky's vibrant and dramatic paintings come to life on every page, inspiring children to exercise their own creativity and self-expression right alongside her. Turn to the last four pages of the book to create your own version of some of Becky's famous scenes.
