First sketches for Bill Monroe painting

I've just finished the first sketches for the Bill Monroe painting.  As most people know, Bill Monroe was "The father of Bluegrass"  and actually gave the name "bluegrass" to the music itself.  He would have been a hundred years old this September and there's lots of activities going on to commemorate his life and what he did for country and bluegrass music.  I plan to do the painting featuring his famous mandolin and hat.  The Country Music Hall of Fame are going to open the glass case his mandolin is displayed in and let us get some detail photographs.  I will get the sketches on the site and as work begins, keep the painting updated on the "Works in Progress" page.  The painting "Fields of Gold" is still on the horizon, but I've had to catch up on some comission paintings before I begin it.  It will be a very time consuming painting due to size and detail and I want to be able to concentrate fully on it when it's started.  That's another reason studies really come into play......everyday I walk by the study of "Fields of Gold" in the gallery, I get excited and that image just keeps building inside your mind so you're completely ready to get on with it when you get started.  Next to "Abandoned In Place", it will be largest tempra so far.
