A portrait of three famous musicians. On the top left is rock n' roll pioneer Fats Domino, and underneath him is blues singer Screamin' Jay Hawkins. To the right is iconic soul singer Stevie Wonder. An inventive and modern construction of three separate boards nailed together, all painted on a vivid lime green background.
