Howlin' Wolf

When starting the third painting in my Blues Singer Series, I asked my 17 year old who to paint next ... he didn't hesitate  - Howlin' Wolf.   It's been fun painting and listening to blues musicians that came from around Louisiana where I spent much of my childhood.  This excerpt from says it all:   "With a musical influence that extends from the rockabilly singers of the 1950s and the classic rock stars of the 1960s to the grunge groups of the 1990s and the punk-blues bands of the 21st century, plus a legion of imitators to rival Elvis’s, he was one of the greatest and most influential blues singers ever."
