[updated:LAST EDITED ON Feb-03-05 AT 04:38 PM (EST)]Hey everybody

Yesterday got a mail back from PappyJ concerning the painting I'm gonna make for BRB. He thinks it's a good idea!
So
I let you choose which blues artist you want me to paint.
I want names!
And the name with the most votes (posts) i'm going paint. Dead or alive, yourself, somebody else from BRB it doesn't matter to me.
If you're a bluesplayer yourself and your name comes up most, you have to send me a photo by email or a link, the more famous ones I can look up.
You can't vote twice for yourself, one time is more than enough. You got a whole week. Next week Thursday evening it's closing time, next week friday i begin to paint.
So start posting and good luck!!!

1) Charley Patton (we're not worthy)
2) Honeyboy Edwards (see above)
3) Blind Boy Fuller (ditto)
4) Son House
5) Robert Johnson

PS. I should also mention:
6) Lightnin' Hopkins.

All those people seem to me to have a lot of character in their faces, they should make interesting subjects for your painting.

Son House

No Question.

By the way, while looking for my favorite pic of Mr. House (which I haven't found yet) so I could link it here, I stumbled upon this one that I'd never seen before. Check out the coverplate on his National. Never seen one like this before...

Bruneau, I can e-mail a .jpg of the picture I was looking for on the web if you decide to paint him. Great pic!

Just for the sake of including another woman I would say Sister Rosetta. You can't go wrong there.

But, I have to vote for Son House as the emblem of blues roots.
