    This is an original painting by Mr. Hooper of Nashville, Tennessee. It is a depiction of an old-time String Band, somewhat reminiscent of a bluegrass band. However, this band has a piano. The central figure is a red-faced gentleman with a huge bottle of whiskey. He is holding a guitar and breathing fire. One would assume that this fellow has drank this whiskey, which is labeled Tennessee firewater. In front of this fellow you'll see a raccoon dressed in matching clothing. Then there is a skeleton playing guitar also in matching clothing. On the left side of this image you'll see a bee playing piano while another bee is somewhat annoyed. This painting has many wonderful details including a potted plant in the window.

    This painting was inspired by my interest in old-time string bands, bluegrass music, roots music and a general history of the music business in my hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. The history of American music is littered with stories of self-destructive behavior. No one in this painting is a representation of any actual person.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
