"I Saw The Light" Mixed media. Acrylic, found objects.
This is the first piece of mixed media artwork that I started on a little over 5 years ago. I drug it out of storage a few weeks ago and decided to finish it.
It's based on the song "I Saw The Light" by Hank Williams, a legendary country singer who wrote that song many years ago.
He died at the age of 29 after years of alcoholism. I was going to include some whiskey labels on the sides of the guitar until I found out that Hank had a painful birth defect in his back that helped drive him to drinking.
I know it sounds weird, but out of respect to him and because of that, I decided to leave them off. I still need to finish the head piece.
