More bluegrass art – from Scoot

Melody Struggle v.1 - oil on canvas by William H. Brance has posted a number of times recently about artists who have bluegrass music as a recurring theme in their work.

Earlier this week we found another, William H. “Scoot” Dryden, Jr., whose large oil paintings are far more abstract than the watercolors of Bob Yonke, who Brance mentioned last week.

Scoot’s work is quite colorful and perhaps a bit macabre, with many involving bluegrass instruments and musical settings.

If you would like to see a large gallery of his work, visit his website.
