Roy A. Merritt   Leave a comment

Roy A. Merritt, a self-taught artist, born in North Carolina in the 1940’s.   His trademark, the use of color that one does not often see used in straight-up portraiture. He uses brightly colored pen and pencils and is a fabulous painter. I believe he is most well known for the hot pink, colored pen drawing of Elvis, a portrait, now a U.S. stamp.  A fine and fun rendition of the King. Check out the Elvis stamp and see the feeling Merritt captures of the King.
Roy A. Merritt suffered a serious heart attack last week and will undergo surgery, Sept. 26th, 2011, in North Carolina. I’m thinking of him.
