10 days of painting: day 5
who has a right to sing the blues? how about son house! he was born in the mississippi delta, had 16 brothers and sisters, shot a man and went to prison, lived also in detriot, and died of cancer of the larynx. that is a bona-fide blues life. (to moi: did you know the white stripes song "death letter" is a son house cover?)
im heading south again friday to 10 thousand islands a gorgeous, wild and primordial place so number 6 wont get painted until next wednesday. im sure the trip will get me off this blues imagery phase im in.
thanks to everyone who gave themselves a "blues name" on the previous post. that was a lot of fun.
