Jim Croce

Chalk Pastel on 11x14 Bristol Vellum. It was a big big lost for the world when Jim died from a plane crash during the late 70s. He's one of my favorite folk singer/songwriters because of his melodic style, poetic lyrics, amazing guitar playing . When Bo Bice sang his song, "Time in the Bottle" in American Idol, it got me hooked up to listening Jim's songs again. I never thought there were a lot of clips of Jim's concerts in YouTube until when I thought of checking it. Imagine what would it be like to listen to his new songs if he were still alive? When I was watcing Jim at YouTube I had to freezed it and draw him for a few minutes.
