Shortly after the death of this country music icon, I was inspired to do this portrait. It was done with an airbrush, and measures 19″x 24″. I made the frame and it is mounted under an acrylic sheet. I posted it on Instagram, and was surprised to see a like from Merle’s son, Ben. I messaged him and offered to send the portrait to him as a gift. He readily accepted, so I sent it off to him. It now hangs on the wall in Ben’s house. It went to a good home.
