There was a time when Music City pressed down on originality. They wanted the same old country music wrapped in a package with tight boundaries. For years, major bands would avoid coming here because the city was full of music snobs. But they finally got over it. Now the level of creativity here is astounding! It just reminds me of cultural landmarks like San Francisco or Seattle.
Now, Nashville draws new people with new ideas and new technology. People from around the world are coming to Music City in droves to be writers, musicians, poets, artists, and more. The old Nashville is a thing of the past! I love music and I love Music City. I’ve always lived within 30-40 miles of it my whole life. That’s why I jumped at the invitation from the Nashville Junior League to paint the city skyline.
The original painting was auctioned off to benefit Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. I was initially told I had three hours to complete the painting. But when I arrived, I discovered I only had one hour! It was all good, though. An Australian auctioneer from Sotheby’s promoted the piece while I painted it just a few feet away from then Mayor Karl Dean. Learn more about this crazy and fun night on my blog. While the original is gone, I still offer reproductions. If you like the look and feel of an original, I can also recreate it as a textured, giclée reproduction on gallery wrapped canvas.
Giclee Reproductions on canvas are priced as follows:
30 x 48 (full size): $600
24 x 38: $420
15 x 24: $225
The included photos show the original, the print, and the full size giclee reproduction. Contact me for custom sizes.
