Blues Art Car - Ray Charles and the Greats

I found this Blues Art Car photo painted for Honda by Artist Jack Poppitz, a self-taught outsider folk artist and carpenter living in Colorado, that usually works with old wood as a backdrop for his folk art. This car was part of a benefit auction held at the House of Blues.
Its covered with blues legends such as Ray Charles, B.B. King, Lead Belly, Walter "Furry" Lewis and J.B. Lenoir. Driving the hood of the Fit is a glorious depiction of blues guitarist Sam "Lightnin' " Hopkins, resplendent with angel wings flying."
