Banjo in the Cotton

Size of original painting: 18” x 24”

“This piece was inspired by my “Bluegrass” music educational experience at South Plains College in Levelland, Texas (1992-93).   The school was surrounded on two sides by fields of cotton.   It is also a tribute to two of my notable Bluegrass Instructors that I had the opportunity to work with; Joe Carr and Alan Munde of Country Gazette fame.   The original framed piece includes hand painted lettering on the glass, by Fort Collins legendary sign painter, Harold Asmus, who opened his shop around 1946.  He was a master of the traditional craft of “sign writing” (hand painted lettering), once a skilled profession that has become outdated by computers.”

*The framed original (with Harold Asmus painted lettering) is available for purchase from the artist.
