While I am flattered by this, I would have preferred you ask for my permission before using my work. I would appreciate if you would not use my work as part of yours and would remove the piece containing Stevie Ray from any place you have posted it online. Thanks!

My mother used to work in a bar that Stevie frequented and played at.

Beautiful. You know, one of the best reasons to be a native Texan would be the ability to pull off a hat like the ones he always wore.

I always love it when my favorite musicians are depicted almost luminescent, and you've done that here.

Thanks Phil. :)

Every time I look at that piece I'm reminded that I was living in Ohio when I painted it, with no idea I would end up in Austin!

A killer piece of one of the greatest guitarists of all time. Sadly he is no longer with us, and who knows where he could have gone had he not been killed int hat crash. Still, his music is out there and a constant reminder of just how good someone can be when they pour their heart and soul into something they love doing most of all.

okay
couple of comments here
I saw the pic of River -- definate cutie:heart:

and I noticed you are a fellow 'RenFaire' addict -- is there an SCA group in your area also?

but this one of Stevie Ray really caught my eye as I was browsing your gallery:winner: lovely job on a great artist who is sorely missed

I think I'm gonna havta watch you:)

Thanks!! Funny thing - I did this piece when I was living in Ohio, LOOONG before I moved to Austin. When I did this piece I didn't even know he was from here, I just liked the music. I know there is a SCA group here, but don't know much about it. I've thought to look into it from time to time, but have not.

If you like RenFaire you'll probably like SCA:)

I cannot tell you how much I absolutely adore this painting! I'm a huge fan of the late great SRV, and this is such a beautiful capture of him! The use of high contrast really suits it well - heck the painting as a whole is just excellent. A deffinate :+favlove: . I'm so happy to have come accross such a lovely work! Cheers.

I do too. This was one of my more successful endeavors with it. It's a little too chalky and thick for my taste (and I can't control it very well if I thin it down. Might as well use watercolors). BUT, it's a nice medium for those who can master it. :-) Thanks for commenting!

Excellent painting. Stevie Ray is one of my favorite all-time artists, and you did such a great job portraying him in this medium. Easily a :+fav:!

Ah, I'm so enyious of people who can paint. Paint sees me coming and well...it's not pretty.

LOVE the hat. It really brings the whole picture together, and offers a nice outline for the man's face. The white and gray background brings out his hair as well, while blending together for a very nice affect. And that shading! So lovely!
