One of the best parts of me being an artist is that something I create can be donated to an organization, then auctioned off at an event and the proceeds go to help our city and fellow Memphians. This new artwork is going to be donated (to be auctioned off) at the event where the Memphis Grizzlies and Stax Academy combine to put on the 2011 Staxtacular - with the proceeds going to the children of the Academy. It is always a GREAT FUN TIME! It's a mixture of Griz players and Stax musicians wondering the halls and rooms of the Stax Museum..... so much to see and take in the history of Stax Records.
As for this particular piece, I referred the the black & white one I did in 2010. I took the middle section (vertical) and found a canvas 30" x 12" and wanted to try and capture the essence of last years in this years - only this time - COLOR!
