In Robert's painting, I used many elements that were rather 60s retro, such as the sunburst behind his head, whereas the floral vine design weaving through his mic stand brings in a more current noveau design element. The colors I used were strongly influenced by the colors used in his Band Of Joy CD. My thought was to tie his past and present together with his love of the blues, his unique style that weaves through all his music. After all, his musical legacy spans more than 5 decades! Yellow-golds and reds are very strong, powerful colors that make a bold statement, and I think they really work well to showcase Robert's larger-than-life persona.
