Rock and Roll Woman



Rock and Roll Woman ©2018 Karen Johnson 

Inspired by the song “Rock and Roll Woman” by Buffalo Springfield. One of my absolute favorites.  Stephen Stills wrote the song about Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane.

I worked on this image on my Ipad using several photographs I put together on it.  I like this melding of different images to come up with something new.  This immediately reminded me of the pop art I grew up with.  Peter Max, Heinz Edelman (Beatles Yellow Submarine) and my favorite, graphic designer Milton Glaser.


The main image is a vintage image from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  The creepy building in the woman’s mind is an iPhone image I took at an abandoned hospital/asylum.  There’s another photo I just took yesterday at Stone Barns using slow shutter that can barely be seen.  I used digital painting apps and brushes to give it the pop art look I wanted.
