Gourd Banjo 3
Gourd Banjo 3
Charcoal on Paper
24" x 18"

Here I am again, playing my gourd banjo. In the entry for "Gourd Banjo 4," I talk about the personal meaning this instrument has for me. I talk also about its symbolism and spiritual meaning in the entry about my painting "Communitas." I used this particular pose and portrait for my self-portrait in "Communitas."
