Icons of My Youth

I am starting a new series today titled: "Icons of My Youth".  The first painting of the series is "Mike Ness. Social Distortion". 20x24 inches on gallery wrapped canvas.  Music is important to me.  When I am feeling depressed I like to listen to songs that I have attached happy memories to.    When I met my wife (girlfriend at the time), she was the first person in our little town that had actually heard of Social Distortion and the Ramones.  Two bands I was heavily into.  Lucky for me, she had a cool punk rocker brother.  We started dating in 10th grade of high school and have been together ever since.  I love how her eyes light up when we are traveling and listening to the radio and a Social Distortion or Ramones song comes on.  We always look at each other, and start singing to the dismay of our four children!  I am looking forward to doing this series, listening to the bands as I paint them.
