The Rock-itt : February 2012
It gives me great pleasure to bring to our Rock-itt readers this month part three of a six part series on the art of American singer/songwriter, musician, author and artist, Robert Florczak. Robert is at the present moment writing a book which we will also take a look at after the end of this series. But for now enjoy February’s instalment of The Art of Robert Florczak. .... . .. .............Pete Johnson. In 1992, after many years of turning down requests from publishing companies, Robert accepted the offer to illustrate his first picture book. "The Rainbow Bridge", written by renowned children's book author, Audrey Wood, is a retelling of the genesis story of the Chumash Indian tribe of southern California. Robert travelled out to the Channel Islands off Santa Barbara to research the actual environs in the story and hired local Native Americans to pose for the characters. The sixteen large oil paintings took two and a half years to complete, and one, "The Seed Gatherer," is to this day his single most popular work of art. "The Rainbow Bridge" was published in 1995 and continues to be one of Florczak's best sellers.
