Thread Name: Origin: Molly and Tenbrooks
Subject: RE: Origin and Lyr: Molly and Tenbrooks
I thought I'd share a painting I did of the this famous horse race several months ago. I used Bill Monroe's lyrics, and drew from actual painting of the real horses. The lyrics are painted on the canvas. It's hard to read them and see some of the detail. I've even draw the music out.
Molly dies as in the song, Tenbrooks rest in the shade. Let me know if you like it. I have several other folksong paintings.
Here's the link:
