This is a portrait of the delta blues player, SON HOUSE. His real name was Eddie James. You can hear his "Death Letter Blues" on youtube. I really love researching the lives and talent of recording artist of all types: pop, jazz, country, classical, etc. There are so many interesting aspects of their lives. SON HOUSE is an image that I originally created using some of the graphics software that I used in my architectural practice. I do this with all of my paintings…. work out all the figures, colors and details before I start work with actual paint. This painting is done on 4 mil thick, archival grade drafting mylar. This material is tough, waterproof, inert, flexible, dimensionally stable, and it does not have to be stretched, like canvas and watercolor paper. The mylar is translucent so that paint can be applied to both sides of the artwork. SON HOUSE is produced using India ink and acrylic paint on architectural drafting mylar. There will only be one original created and no authorized copies will ever be made. This painting will be shipped in a tube. The mylar is easy to mount on any type of hardboard. I include simple mounting instructions with each piece that I sell. If you prefer, I will mount the artwork on tempered masonite board with a two or three inch border. It will be “ready to hang”, with a hanging strip attached to the back and a wall hanging device that is very simple to use. It will be shipped in a cardboard box. You may take it out of the box and have it hanging on your wall within five minutes. The extra charge is $50.00 for mounting plus the additional shipping costs. Message me through Artfinder and I will calculate the total costs for mounting and shipping.
If a shipping rate to your country is not shown, send me a message and I will calculate the amount and let you know the amount.
