This is my completed image of the artwork Woodstock. Alongside of the artwork, I have an image showing the hanging frame for these free canvas artworks. The round magnets on each side of the top of the frame are used to hold the artwork in place. The other image is a closeup of the advanced stereo amplifier system that powers the music.
I will let the video tell the rest of the story of Woodstock from my home office studio being a stranger in a strange land.
The lesson I learned from Woodstock (mentioned in the video) is that placing the words on the top layer, instead of the bottom, may make it easier to read them even after scrapping. I plan on testing this idea on the final Christmas painting.

Here is one of many versions of this year’s Christmas song sung by Martina McBride:
I picked this music for its connection with the Blues. There are few to none other popular Christmas songs in that genre, and this is the best. This version from the David Letterman’s final Christmas show puts this music over the top with Darlene Love’s Gospel influence.
