I like what I've seen of this womans art - I hope you do too. Her name is Tracy Bigelow Grisman. Also known as Mrs. David Grisman. See what you think.

I second that.

A bit of idle curiosity - one pic showed a seated woman playing a cello-sized instrument across her body. It stood on a leg & had a tear-shaped body & sound hole near the neck. What is it?

It's either a mandocello or mando bass. Depends on the size of the woman I guess.

Very nice. I'd love to have her do one of my dad from those days (I've got a nice one of him playing a uke, with a big grin), but I'll bet it's too pricey, for now.:-) I really like what she has done. Thanks, Wesley.

I'm pretty sure there is a title that calls that drawing "Woman with a Mandobass". I've seen the original photograph somewhere.

An Amazon review of a "Dawg" CD (Dawg's Groove) includes:

"Latin sensibilities characterize a samba ("Zambola") and bossa ("Tracy's Tune"), the latter for Tracy Bigelow, the wonderful woman in Grisman's life who penned the pleasing title track, "Dawg's Groove.""

Numerous other reviews of Grisman and group(s) CDs make similar references.

Dirty Linen [an excerpt from the print edition of Dirty Linen #131 (August/September 2007)] makes reference to her as:

"The disc's title tune was penned by another band associate, Tracy Bigelow, who is also Grisman's fiancé. 'She's also a great painter and did the covers to several ACD [Acoustic Disc] releases, including Been All Around This World with Jerry Garcia. You can check out her artwork at Oldtimeyart.com.'"

Credits on a number of David Grisman CDs list her as Tracy Bigelow. She is also credited by the same name in several reviews as the photographer for album and article items.

Only one "photographer" credit that I found lists her as Tracy Bigelow Grisman, and that one was undated; but all sites reviewing her "artworks" now include Grisman. Her "Bio" at her own art site is "uninformative."

Her artwork is quite pleasing, and she obviously has had a long relationship with the Dawg.

David Grisman's Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/David-Grisman/115194755206095?v=info) states that "[h]e lives in Northern California with his wife Tracy."

Harmony might be his ex-wife, as they have a son together, Monroe Grisman (http://www.pacificsun.com/story.php?story_id=3275)

David's first wife, the mother of Gillian and Monroe, was Harmony (originally named Jill, I think). Harmony is still active as a guitarist and teacher in northern California. His second wife, the mother of Sam, was Pam. She was a journalist, I don't know whether she is still writing. David is now married to Tracy, the artist that's been under discussion. I really really like her work!
