I'm going to do something I normally don't. I am going to post here the beginning of the current painting I will be working on - probably for the next month or so. I'm working from a photograph that I took of the bassist in a band called "Horseshoes and Hand Grenades." I know, I also thought, what kind of name is that, but guess they had a reason for picking that name. Anyway they were performing at the Ryman Opry House in Nashville, Tennessee during the Ryman's Bluegrass segment when I saw them. This player intrigued me - as I mentioned to my friend, "he looks like he's tripping, but he is really good." That's when I decided to do this series, starting with the piece I did of my son in performance. Not sure how far I will take it.

I think I'm going to enjoy doing this one. I will post as I progress on this piece.
