Strumming in asheville
If you like the texture in this painting it might be because it fell off of the easel on to the concrete when I was trying to photograph it. A few ants and crepe myrtle blossoms add to the total effect. This was a request from my son who has just graduated from college and is now working in New Orleans. He liked the musician I painted earlier and asked if I would paint it for him on a very large canvas. This is painted on a 24 X 36" gallery wrap. Out of my comfort zone. Oh, did I mention that he just made the request two days ago because we are going to visit him this weekend? Sure Clint. You know he has to be a great kid if I did it.
I really think he has ulterior motives. I sign my paintings c. carmichael. He is planning on using these paintings as a chick magnet. Girls love those artsy types. My brother is a very nice painter and used to give girls he was dating paintings he had done. It never failed that as soon as he would give them a picture they would break up. Except for his final girlfriend/wonderful wife Amy.
I will post again in a few days if I don't melt in Nawlins.
