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

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.
