George Jones - Ballpoint Pen by ronmonroe George Jones - Ballpoint Pen by ronmonroe
This was on my to-draw list for a long time, and since the recent passing of George Jones, I thought I would finally get this done. I know probably half of the people who see this, don't even know who George Jones is, and probably half of those people don't even listen to country music. But, that's okay, this was just for me.
So, with that said, grab a beer and some tissue and enjoy the best country song ever.....[link]

Tools: ballpoint pen on smooth bristol

Here are a few wip's:

You are an excellent and very talented artist and have done a beautiful and fantastic job on this portrait of George. I feel sorry for those not familiar with George's music. They are truly missing a lot. He was, is and always will be the pure essence of what REAL country music should be. I watched the memorial service live on CMT t.v. channel and cried uncontrollably from beginning to end. It was the most heartbreaking, gut wrenching emotional tribute to anyone that I have ever witnessed. He will live on in my heart and the hearts of all who knew and loved his music. His song..."who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes" comes to mind. There is no one that can fill his shoes...ever. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece of art and for recognizing George for the legend that he is. Bless you. :heart:

Nice work! I am from the Beaumont, Port Arthur, Orange area. He used to play the street corners in Beaumont, Tx. before he made it big. No doubt he is a legend to anyone who appreciates country music. You couldn't have picked a better music link for anyone who has not heard George Jones music. The drawing depicts his likeness very well. Thanks for posting. We love him down here in Southeast Texas.
