“Shaman”

 

Bob Weir

Ah…the begining! This is the small colored pencil study to guide this new painting of Bob Weir, founding member of the Grateful Dead, and RatDog.

As I painted this piece, the following photos were added to this page so you could see it come together.

Thought I’d start off with Bob’s detailed eye.

The history behind Weir’s guitar is blowin’ in the wind.

In the spring of 1987 Bob Dylan was rehearsing with the Grateful Dead for upcoming shows.
Bob Weir explains, “We went into rehearsal with Dylan and he needed a guitar; he hadn’t brought one if you can believe that.”
“Oh just get me something simple-get me a Strat.” “So we presented him with this variety of Strats,” Weir reports. About the pink guitar,
“Dylan said, ‘I like the way this one sounds and I like the way this one plays…but this one is the right color,’ Bob says with a laugh.”
“Later, after the tour was over, he gave it to me. I started playing it and I loved it”
