Digital photo taken with my Sony DSC F717. I used the Photoshop poster effect. This image was inspired by the song that I was inspired to write and record to accompany the music of Canadian composer Steve (Morty) Morton. He was quite pleased with the end result. The song is dedicated to my late dad Arthur Hunt, Sr. and my brother Arthur Hunt, Jr. for their life long blues influences. The song is posted below.

Sippin Some Blues
Words & Melody by RoyAllenHunt © April 8, 2008
Music by Steve Morton © March 31, 2008

I lost my job today and though I just got paid I feel nothing but worry and dread.

Thought I’d escape and hit the town, see what fun was goin down.….But I changed my mind.

So I turned myself back home to you and our warm inviting bed. Thinking you’d hold and soothe my aching head. But when I got there somebody else was there instead.

Ummm, no since cryin over lost jobs and over you. No since cryin over lost jobs and over you. After I’m done kickin you out, tell you what I’m gonna do, I’m gonna sit right here and sip myself some blues.

I tell you what I’m gonna do, I’m gonna sit right here, I’m gonna sit right here and sip myself some blues.

    BRAVO!
    This is a gorgeous piece of artwork and the song is a mighty fine one too. the whole thing is just exceptional! a perfect ekphrasis example! Bravo!
    and congrats on the favouring in Cocktails & Dreams well worth it!
    Chookas! ☺

  • Thank you Chookas for your comments on both of the pieces that I entered into this very interesting group and for the congratulations. Until I saw it in the Recent Groups listing, I had never even heard of ekphrasis. Even at my age I love to learn new things. Thanks for helping to keep my mind and my eyes open. Look forward to continued exploration.
