Ok so, I had known about this themed art reception for months, but had decided not to participate due to several other ongoing projects.
The theme was "music". We are in Macon GA., home of Chuck Berry, The Allmon Brothers, Jason Aldean, Otis Redding...just to name a few. They know their music!
I didn't feel I had the time, nor did I have a creative idea for this show. However, I was sure that most of the above mentioned people would be beautifully represented.
My favorite style of music is always bluesy, soulful, the more rasp, the more old southern rock, the better! Then it hit me!
The day before the deadline, I started painting this piece. That doesn't leave any time for rethinking, or reworking anything! Probably not the best decision for participating in a juried art shows. (LOL)
Of course, we are sure he one day will be placed among the musical greats. But, for now, he is "hanging" with the Blues legends in Macon.
Oh, and I took home a ribbon too! 😉
