    New RIC ordered

    Wow but that is absolutely gorgeous! I know it is going to sound great too. See why I enjoy drawing them? Look at the light reflections on the rounded edges of the wood and the pickups... and the color of the guitar would be a delightful challenge to capture on paper. Congrats and hope you get this gem soon.

    Mudcrutch at the Ryman

    I thought I had posted these photos already! Sorry y'all. Enjoy!
  3. Awwww, that's sad but I guess it's time. I've enjoyed being a part of Mudcrutch Farm and sooo enjoyed the discussions & generosity. Thanks to everyone who has been so nice to me here! As a farewell gift, let me share with you the only portrait I've created from the Mudcrutch night at the Ryman Auditorium: the remarkable Tom Leadon. (This is just for y'all, please don't publish elsewhere) My 2nd row seat that night gave me a perfect view of Tom (and Tom P), and lots of good photos came from the evening. My life got derailed for awhile just months after this show with the unexpected death of my father and the heartbreaking decline & death of my mother only a year later, so it's taken a long time to get back in the art studio with a clear head. But I'm back drawing, and have just completed a portrait of Josh Jove who was in the opening act The Shelters.
  4. HEY how cool is that!!
  5. I need a big weekend! Kick up the dust... or kick off the dust, which actually fits me better. Stress-filled week comes to a close with resolution of some problematic situations. I think I really need a quiet weekend! Think I'll go put a Mudcrutch CD on the player... meanwhile y'all enjoy this photo I snapped at the Ryman. Y'all have a good weekend too, ya hear? Susan Gardner
  6. Reading the article, I felt so sad... but very proud of dear Adria who is taking action to publicize what happened, and taking action to educate the public & push for changes. What a great kid.
  7. MuddyandMagnolia, I forgot to say what kind of art I do... I work in pastels (sticks of wonderful pure color!) and sometimes colored pencils. Subjects have ranged over the years from landscapes to wildlife, and since 2001 I've been drawing portraits of musicians and their instruments, putting on paper how their music makes me feel. At local venues I've been able to take photos and create the portraits, and its enabled me to relate to a whole new world of musicians, singers, and art aficionados. I took some astonishing photos of Mudcrutch at the Ryman, and TPatH at Phillips Arena but haven't had time to work on any portraits from those concerts yet. If life ever settles down I will happily get started! Now here is a portrait of a very talented young man named John Tice with his beloved Telecaster...
  8. Cool you're into Gretsches!! They got a sound like no other.
  9. Hey hey! Oh I LOVE that shocked Tom with the Ricky - that is a hoot! Yep the "Goober Wall" does help me in the art studio... it helps to lessen the pressure to do or achieve and just let the muse in & see what it brings. I've got everybody on that wall from John Lee Hooker and Buddy Guy, Tom, Mike, Emo Phillips, Picasso and George Vanderbilt (he built the Biltmore House in Asheville NC and was so rich - but he was a major Goober too.) Look here, this is part of the Wall bulletin board: Tom top right, Mike top center, on the top right George Vanderbilt acting like a goober while his friends pose properly. Bottom row, left: John Lee Hooker who has obviously said something to set Buddy Guy into fits of laughter, dear Emo Phillips who is one of my favorite comedians, Emo again bottom right with my friend Teresa, and in the middle on the right is John Singer Sargent, my favorite portrait artist of all time who played piano when he was trying to stir the muse to paint... and ole JSS was a goober too! Gotta love it. Enjoy!
  10. I missed a little of what Dhani said too! Sweet fella though, loved the way he talked about the music his dad and Tom made.
  11. LOVE these! Good for a grin any day. I've got a bulletin board in my art studio, fondly called the Goober Wall, where I pin up photos of famous folk showing they can cut up and laugh. And be silly. I've got that one up already, that MuddyAndMagnolia posted on April 17 of long-haired Tom with his head tilted and eyes wide. What a hoot!
  12. Hey, y'all download it and keep it if you like. A very late Christmas present from me! Susan Gardner
  13. I got here as soon as I could... I just saw the statement Dana had put out earlier today (Monday) and it made me ache to read it. I was saddened to read that it wasn't just cardiac arrest... but meds taken for a fractured hip, that actually broke. Mercy me... that explains his obvious discomfort in Atlanta; but he played so good that night, sang so good, acted like he was having a good time - most of the time. I saw the band watching him and by the end of the evening suspected that he wasn't feeling 100%. Bless his heart, as we say down South. What Marion said is right, those were an awful lot of different meds - and those damn cigarettes... my aunt died from emphysema and people, that is an awful way to go. He was headed down a long, awful road with that condition alone... How nice to be able to discuss this sad thing with you people. Good company, ya are.
  14. Hey y'all, it's been awhile since I visited the Farm. Time has not been my own for a couple of years... but it's begun to settle down. Unfortunately my computer kinda hit the dirt and I lost a bunch of photos - one of them was a great photograph of Steve Ferrone, taken by one of our Farmers here, who graciously shared it with me several years ago when I put out a call for a photo of Steve smiling behind the drum kit during a concert. I wanted to do a portrait of Steve, but didn't have the chance to take my own photos. When I lost the photo, I lost the name of the person who gave it to me. Proper and sincere thanks are deserved! So if you're the one who shared this photo, speak up now! Here is the portrait I created from it...
