"Microphone"
6 x 6" oil on board

SOLD

A few years back, a friend of mine gave me this mic. It is very old and no longer works, but I always loved to wonder who sang through it, and what type of music it amplified.

I wanted to depict the mic in a most basic fashion--lines and space, drawing comparisons to my other passion--music. I see the grooves on the microphone as the staffs on a sheet of music, and the highlights as whole notes.

Cab Calloway used to sing through a microphone like that. A man of blues like yourself oughta know who he is.
