Portrait Of Duane Allman
Duane Allman was one of the greatest rock/blues guitarists who ever lived and a master of the slide guitar. Magic mushrooms are a logo of the Allman Brothers Band. The peach trees are symbolic of a quote from Duane, “Whenever I go to Georgia I eat a peach for peace.” His posthumous album is called Eat A Peach. The quote in the rainbow is his, and is the epitaph on his tombstone. The sunrise and sunset at the bottom and the top of the painting are symbolic of his short life span of twenty-four years. The river is the blues tradition flowing into and from his guitar. The guitar is the Gibson tobacco sunburst with which he is most frequently associated; it is anatomically correct down to the frets. The painting is brightly colored while Duane’s face is more ethereal. It symbolizes that while he is gone his music lives on. Wail on, Skydog!
