Watch this space for The 2019 Collectible Print reveal in September, 2019!
Memories of childhood trips to Maynardville where musicians fiddled and strummed the tunes of the 50’s and 60’s on the courthouse lawn inspired Betty Bullen’s Print, “Fiddlin’ Around”.
Sometimes these shade tree musicians were just good ole’ country boys and girls. But a few like Chet Atkins, Roy Acuff, Carl Smith, Lois Johnson, Kenny Chesney, and Bit Rouse did become famous, some even known internationally.
Betty Bullen’s original print is entitled “Coming Home” and reminds us of the many veterans that have returned home from military service as well as those who gave their all for our freedoms. A Heartland episode of a Sharps Chapel Veteran, Luther Woods, returning from WWI as well as conversations with friends inspired the artist.
