"When you find it in the glow of a honky-tonk bar,
The one last thing that can mend a broken heart..."
(Lyrics from "Gimme Back My Money" by Shane Dwight).

Music can tame the savage beast, but when you can only find solace in a broken-down bar where the blues are being played loud and fierce, I guess that's sinking down pretty far...

Thanks, guys, for your comments. I must have started this painting three different times in as many weeks, before it began to come together -- it was quite a challenge for me. I guess I'm just a colorist at heart; the more vibrant the colors, the better. I'm glad you liked it.

marcialsj,
The blues have never been expressed so poignantly. The artistry
and lush, vibrant palette lends a passionate atmospheric depth to
the stirring emotion that is expressed here. Excellent piece! :)
