Artist comment: Born on July 7, 1913, Pinetop Perkins played with Muddy Waters for twelve years, and was one of the last great Mississippi Delta Bluesmen still performing when he passed away on March 21, 2011 at the age of 97. Many attribute his long life to his love of McDonalds, cigarettes, his music, and, of course, the ladies. He was quite the character, which is why this painting of him is not of his performance, but rather of him giving me the “thumbs up”. Pinetop received three Grammy awards, the latest just a month before he died.
