BB King

My son recently purchased a home in Memphis, Tn. It is a beautiful house and he has one room in it that he is calling his “music room”. He plays the guitar and I guess collects them (he has 15 or so). When I saw a picture of a cutting of BB King that another scroller did, I decided it would be a great picture for my son to hang in his music room. I purchased the pattern from Charles Dearing and finished cutting it two days ago. This was a challenge for me. The largest portrait I have attempted. It is 18” x 17”.

An incredible likeness. Anyone would love to have that.

Thanks for posting.

My how he could make that girl sing.

I imagine after seeing this some folks will want to hear that Thrill is gone

Testament that “The Thrill is Gone” is a great song is evidenced by the number of superstar musicians who wanted to play, and record that number with BB.

Wonderful work! Such detail. I once caught his guitar pick at a concert when he threw it into the crowd at the end of a gig. A true legend.
