The response has been fantastic with comments coming in from readers all around the globe who were influenced by Gary’s Music. And after all…what guitar player would not want to win a Gary Moore CD or DVD?
As a part of the CD/DVD giveaway contest, I updated everyone about my favorite artist Tom Noll and his latest project – a hand painted scene of Gary Moore playing guitar live.
Well, Tom heard about the post and contacted me with an idea for a 2nd contest and a chance to WIN A FREE PRINT of his completed painting!
Here is the deal:
Tom has an idea in his head for a name of this painting but he would also like to open this up to Gary Moore’s fans and let them suggest a name to the painting!
The contest is simple, if Tom selects your suggestion as the final name for the painting, you will receive a FREE PRINT (Tom sells these for over $200.00+ on his web site). All I can say to that is WOW! THANK YOU TOM!
Over the past week, Tom and I have exchanged several emails about the Gary Moore project. Here are a few excerpts that will give you a greater understanding about Tom Noll, the artist.
I have had numerous requests over the last few years, mostly from my UK clients, as to when I was going to do a GM painting. When I recently watched a YouTube vid of him doing Jimi’s Red House, I realized that from that clip alone, I’d seen dozens of inspirational images that would be perfect for a painting.
After careful consideration, I have chosen an image from a concert in Austria, provided to me by Rene Huemer of Austria for the painted piece. The energy of my style and Gary’s expressiveness when performing are a perfect match. In addition to his euphoric look, I’m excited to paint the legendary Peter Greene GoldTop that he is doing his thing on. As I’m painting Gary, I’m reminded of all the people that he’s influenced, and I’m feeling an enormous obligation to capture the Gary we knew and loved, and bring forth his passion.
I’d like to extend to his fans, the opportunity to name this painting. I’m offering one of my signed limited edition prints to the person that gets my attention and nails it. It’s really exciting involving his passionate fans. I think that the name should speak of the late Gary’s passion, his energy and fury, his soulfulness, and/or his GoldTop. As a default, I probably would have named it “Rock In Peace”. Ultimately, from the suggestions provided, I’ll pick the name that will live with the painting for the future.
Fans can see the painting’s progression on my link, and they should realize that their suggestions are being mulled over by myself, the artist, as the painting is progressing. I’ll pick a name when the painting is completed. `The giclee prints will be 27″ x 19″ and will be released at an introductory price of $217, with $8 to ship within the US, and $12.50 for international. The proposed completion date is mid to late December. You can reserve your low number Gary Moore print by visiting my site and contacting me via email to get on the list. No money’s due until they are ready to ship.
I look forward to hearing from The Guitar Buzz followers on this exciting piece.
– Tom Noll
