March 7, 2013 - Below is an excerpt from an article recently written about Mike.  There's lots more to read so be sure to check out the full article!

Michael, when was your first desire to become involved in art and the Blues music?
I love Music. Music and Musicians a lyrical expression of an image; Iím just lucky enough to be able to capture that expression. My connection with the International Blues Foundation began from a newspaper article. I had just painted BB KING, and had a few hundred lithographs printed, when I read an article about the Blues Foundation needing some donations. So I drove down to their offices in Memphis, Tennessee, double parked, and delivered one hundred Lithographs, to help them raise some much need funds. A couple of years passed and John Hahn, Shemekia Copelandís manager, emailed me and told me to expect a phone call from Jay Sielman, the Director of the Blues Foundation. Jay asked me if I would be willing to paint the 2006 BMA Poster, I did, and Iíve been donating to and painting for the Blues Foundation ever since.

What does Blues Folk Art mean to you and what does offer you?
I donít paint folk art, my ART is more impressionistic. But it offers me the chance to paint the colorful stars of the Blues World. It lets me express my joy and love for the music, the beat, the soul, that erupts from the Blues Players. Blues musicians donít jump into the Music Business for fame and fortune, they play the Blues, because they LOVE it. And they allow me to portray that love.

What do you learn about yourself from the colors, paintbrushes, music and Blues Folk culture?
Iíve a 16 year, 10 time cancer survivor, the Bright Colors I use were my savings grace from the torture and pain of Chemotherapy. Iím also a writer, and in many cases Iíve lived the blues, which helps when I try and capture the Blues Artists essence.
