Bonnie Raitt

“Something to Talk About”

Here’s another painting that’s been on my “must do” list for a long time.
I’m super excited that she turned out like I was thinking.

This painting was created specifically for the Kenosha Public Museum for their exhibition “Center Stage – A Century of Guitars”, running from August 20th, 2016 to February 26th., 2017.  I just had to paint Bonnie playing her Fender Custom Shop Bonnie Raitt Blue Burst Stratocaster. It seemed a perfect match, seeing as Fender produced this signature guitar for Bonnie.

Bonnie Lynn Raitt (born November 8, 1949) is an American blues singer, songwriter and slide guitar player. During the 1970s, Raitt released a series of roots-influenced albums which incorporated elements of blues, rock, folk and country. In 1989 after several years of critical acclaim but little commercial success she had a major return to public prominence with the release of her album Nick of Time. The following two albums Luck of the Draw (1991) and Longing in Their Hearts (1994) were also multi-million sellers generating several hit singles, including “Something to Talk About”, “Love Sneakin’ Up on You”, and the ballad “I Can’t Make You Love Me” (with Bruce Hornsby on piano). Bonnie has received 10 Grammy Awards. She is listed as number 50 in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time and number 89 on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.

I hope you like how I’ve portrayed her. I think Bonnie will!
