John Mayer piece released!!

The First piece for the MyAtlanta series is here... will not be releasing them all before the show but you will be able to see some of the work and the progress only on this blog. All the sketches and previews from most of the pieces will come but not full images of finished ones because then what would you come to the show for? To see the suprise guests??? LOL! Well...Here it is. It's all acrylic?? (I don't do acrylic a lot, started with the live pieces I did this summer.) Let me know what you think. I'm open to brutal criticism too!! It's approx. 4' x 3' acrylic on canvas. John Clayton Mayer

Mayer began his career performing mainly acoustic rock, but gradually began a transition towards the blues genre in 2005 by collaborating with renowned blues artists such as B. B. King, Buddy Guy, and Eric Clapton, and by forming the John Mayer Trio. The blues influence can be heard on his album Continuum, released in September 2006. At the 49th Annual Grammy Awards in 2007 Mayer won Best Pop Vocal Album for Continuum and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Waiting on the World to Change". Mayer's career pursuits have extended to stand-up comedy, design, and writing; he has written pieces for magazines, most notably for Esquire. He is also involved in philanthropic activities through his "Back to You" fund and his concern over global warming.

For those that don't know John's music...

I have all of his music including his New Album due out Tuesday Nov. 17th, definitely a must have! I own it and I am still buying one!

John Mayer piece preview...

The My Atlanta Series will feature some of the people that inspire me from the City that I was born and Bred in! Some from other cities around Atlanta, but ATL is much more than just a city divided into 6 Zones...It's the birthplace of a movement! John Mayer is definitely an inspirational musician...And yes this is a very close up part of the painting, and yes this is all you get...For Now! Gotta Love what you do! I absolutely love what I do!

MY ATLANTA SERIES...Sketches Cont.


Andrew Jackson Young (born March 12, 1932) is an American politician, diplomat and pastor from Georgia who has served as Mayor of Atlanta, a Congressman from the 5th district, and United States Ambassador to the United Nations. He served as President of the National Council of Churches USA, and was a supporter and friend of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University in Atlanta was named after him. International Boulevard, near the Centennial Olympic Park, has been re-named Andrew Young International Boulevard, in honor of his efforts to secure the Olympic bid for Atlanta.

n 1977, President Jimmy Carter appointed Young to serve as Ambassador to the UN, the first African-American to serve in the position. Young's controversial statements made headlines almost from the start. In August 1979, he appeared on Meet the Press and said that Israel was "stubborn and intransigent."[3] Young met secretly for meetings, in violation of American law, with representatives of the Palestine Liberation Organization, which culminated in Carter asking for Young's resignation.[4] Jimmy Carter denied any complicity in The Andrew Young Affair.

As UN Ambassador, Young played a leading role in advancing a settlement in Zimbabwe with Robert Mugabe and Joshua Nkomo.

In 1981, Young was elected mayor of Atlanta, succeeding Maynard Jackson. As mayor of Atlanta, he brought in $70 billion of new private investment, including the 1996 Olympic Games- making Atlanta the engine of prosperity for Georgia that it remains today.[citation needed] He continued and expanded Maynard Jackson's programs for including minority and female-owned businesses in all city contracts. Atlanta1988 Democratic National Convention, and the Mayor's Task Force on Education established the Dream Jamboree College Fair that tripled the college scholarships given to Atlanta public school graduates. He also revamped the Atlanta Zoo, making ecological habitats specific to different animals.[citation needed] hosted the Young was re-elected as Mayor in 1985 with more than 80% of the vote.

Ambassador Young, though Born in Louisiana is the reason Atlanta is what it is today...He has continued to mentor young Atlanta leaders and continues to strive to make this one of the greatest cities in the world...Yep he has a lot to do with why you love My City!!
