Toots & The Maytals

They’re my “Stars” for Take a Word this week! A lot of dimensional paint went onto the page!! The image is cut from a postcard advertising tour dates locally last year… I know, right? I am such a hoarder of postcards!! 😉

Toots and the Maytals… Stars of the 1970s and the Reggae movement. I was a teenager growing up in those days and I remember the youth club discos – Mungo Jerry, Toots, etc. Good times…

I realised when I’d finished the page that the colours are also representative of the whole Rastafarian faith… Red, yellow, black and green!!
