Twenty Dollar Rock Star

Acrylic, 2010

The Twenty Dollar rock star walks the streets and plays for those he meets. Maybe for a cigarette, a smile, or a Coca-Cola. He is easy to please and well read, and disarms those in his path with charm and wit. He has faith and a friend called crow, who eats bacon and listens to Beatles. He is the twenty dollar rock star, just $20 will do. He is a desperado and if you ever cross his path, there will be a story to tell. Acrylic painting on wood panel and resides in the collection of the $20 rock star who was a touring Canadian activist rock star in the 1970's.
