Glen Hansard @ Bonnaroo 2013

       Glen Hansard at Bonnaroo Music Festival 2013.  3 colors , 18 x 24 inches. Edition of 150.

I wanted to pay homage to Glen's music by depicting a landscape that paid tribute to the emotional quality of his solo lp.  It seemed fitting to depict a very expressionistic, painterly version of the mountains of Tennessee and Kentucky, since I've been driving though them the last few years to make my way down to Bonnaroo.  Pretty simple idea and I think it worked well in this case.  The trick with landscape is to understand the power of the emotion you are trying to depict and make sure it fits the music .
