Steve Winwood, Traffic by Cynthia-Blair Steve Winwood, Traffic by Cynthia-Blair
another rock legend:
Steve Winwood from Traffic

my favorite song of all time by them: Low Spark of High Heeled Boys...

"If I gave you everything that I own
and asked for nothing in return
Would you do the same for me, as I would for you?
Or take me for a ride
and strip me of everything, including my pride
But spirit is something that no one destroys..."



you can visit him on the web at: [link]
he's still touring these days :)

Created in support of Memories in Music and the Music Heritage Project

tech details:
oil on board, monochrome
from an old photo

Thanks for viewing :)

Ah, that's fantastic! I love Traffic XD He must be one of the most underrated British musicians there is... And there's not much art of him either.

I know...I should do more of him. This was really just a quickie I did awhile back.
I adore Traffic, still listen to them! Thanks, glad you like it! :D

I think I need to upload something of him or another member soon... I know I must have a portrait somewhere, ha ha! I've only been listening to Traffic for a few years now (I'm 14) but I'm so glad I did hear about them!

Duuude. 'Don't see much Winwood portraits here.

Just to point out, one of his eyebrows looks heavier than the other.

I would fix it, but it's over in England at the moment. I will check that out, though, thanks!
Winwood deserves more fan art, he's great! :D

It is hard to believe that such a young man could sound like Ray Charles :XD:
Good likeness too Cynthia!

Thanks! It's hard to get good focused pics of these older band guys to work from, tho...not much on the web. This was a first for me using monochrome oils.

Yeah, I miss Traffic...Steve is still touring alot, though. I think he's in Europe now, he was over here this summer. I missed it, though :(
I hear his home is just incredibly beautiful, that he owns a huge estate in the Cotswolds area that he's had for decades. My friend had to pick up some photos for the exhibit. :)
