Bill Monroe – Goin’ Home

Bill Monroe portrait by Karen Canon - Goin Home, (c) 2008 Art Strings Publishing LLC; All Rights ReservedWe first met artist Karen Cannon when she contacted us about advertising on Bluegrass Today several months back. As we spoke, I realized that I had seen a number of her images of bluegrass instruments or themes, including a clever image of Santa Claus tuning his mandolin which she has licensed as a Christmas card.

Her latest painting is a striking portrait of Bill Monroe, entitled Goin’ Home. Karen describes this stirring image as imagining Bill Monroe tuning up for his final journey.

It is now available as a limited edition print, taken from the original pastel painting. These are high quality, fine art Giclee prints that measure 22 x 28” (outer mat dimensions). The run is limited to 100 prints, each of which is signed and numbered by the artist, and will be shipped in a bevel cut mat with a certificate of authenticity.

Each print is priced at $175 with complimentary shipping to any US address. Full details on this limited offering can be found on Karen’s web site.

Karen’s art is published through Art Strings Publishing LLC, and distributed internationally by Hal Leonard Corporation. Music lovers worldwide have begun collecting her pieces, and the signed prints are rapidly gaining in value.

She also invites IBMA attendees to visit with her during Fan Fest where many examples of her bluegrass themed art will be on display.
