Artist comment: I waited a very long time to be able to photograph Willie Nelson, and several years ago I finally had my chance. This painting is the result of the photos that I took at the 2008 Oregon State Fair. There are so many photographs and artworks created of this great musician, that I was a little intimidated about doing a painting of him, so the photo I chose to use was a little different than most others I have seen… with just a touch of a smile. The intricacies of his face were both challenging and wonderful to paint, and I am hoping that I did him justice.
