From Four Till Late

From Four Till Late was painted in 2007 during an outdoor Dark Observatory live painting performance in Kentucky's Greenbo Lake State Resort Park, where JSH met with then-Governor Ernie Fletcher during the ribbon-cutting event for the park's new amphitheatre.

The piece was then brought over to JSH's adjacent art exhibition, Icons of the Wilderness, which was displayed in the lobby of the park's main lodge, and hung even though it was still not completely dry.

The title refers to the 1937 Robert Johnson song, which may or may not lead one to assume that this is the 78 rpm record the woman is listening to.
