During Wind and Rain - Study

During Wind and Rain - Study
6X8, Oil on Panel

Last year, one of my biggest collectors, who also happens to write and direct musicals both off and sometimes on Broadway,  asked if I would paint something that could serve as a poster for an upcoming musical he was working on titled, "During Wind and Rain."  The musical is based upon real life events that occurred in one single family in Desha County, Arkansas around the turn of the century.  It is a tragic story of multiple deaths and the shadow they cast  upon a once prominent and wealthy cotton farming family.  I was intrigued and wanted to do it.  This is the study  upon which the final piece was based.  The musical opens in North Little Rock, Arkansas in April and I can't wait to see it.
