"Arlo Guthrie" Portrait Featured on Woody Guthrie's America...

"Arlo Guthrie, 2011". By Travis Simpkins featured on the Woody Guthrie's America site

     2012 is the Centennial year for American troubadour-folk singer Woody Guthrie, born in Okemah, Oklahoma in 1912. His compositions ("This Land is Your Land", "So Long It's Been Good to Know Ya", "Hard Travelin'", "Pastures of Plenty"...) have become both the fabric and spirit of American Music. I am so pleased and honored that Woody Guthrie's America saw fit to choose my illustration of Woody's son, Arlo Guthrie to be featured on their site. I have come to know three generations of the Guthrie Family over the years, and can say that they are some of the nicest folks around.
