Sister Rosetta Tharpe and her Gibson SG

This Train! Check out the video... I love her stage presence. She loved what she was doing.

I awoke at 2:30AM again... Sister Rosetta was in my thoughts. I see her in a painting surrounded by little paintings of angelic choir members in different poses of praise. I will have to hash this idea out... However, here's the early morning sketch with digital color and background. I have drawn her with a standard guitar pick, and experts will notice that she used a thumb pick. I'm sorry.
