OK, technically an assignment, but in reality a self-assigned one. Let me explain….

Danny Everitt and I were in a band in Austin in the early 70’s, having a modicum of success. But when it broke up, I assessed my situation, and went back to photography, which I had been doing since age 13. Danny continued along the musical path for the most part, returning to it full time a number of years ago. I have done all his photography, and in actuality I jumped back in to playing again for fun 30 years ago. A recent effort of Danny, myself and two other band mates, aided by a number of well-known Texas musician friends of ours, can be found here:

Anyway, when I started doing work for Bob McClaren and his 44 Farms Angus Beef farm, I saw this scene, a remnant from the original family members who settled the land over 100 years ago. I instantly visualized this image, but it wasn’t until 2016, when Danny told me he had a new release coming out titled “Dream Big,” that we were finally able to put my idea into tangible form. And I will say it came out exactly as I had envisioned. The only glitch is that it ended up as the inside spread of the CD, instead of the wraparound cover, as I was overruled by his wife, who thought the frontal shot made him “look hot!” You can see the whole packaging, along with others I have done for my musical friends, on my commercial web site:

The photo hangs as part of my 7-image gallery at a local Houston restaurant,

the one with a funny name; Jonathan’s The Rub. I also have an Ultra HD print of this hanging in my own office.

It was awarded a Gold at the local and regional level of The American Advertising Federation Awards, and a Silver at the national level.
