July 2006 I was invited out to the Woody Guthrie Festival to speak about my book Woody Guthrie Artworks. You know, it’s good for me to get out of the North East. I didn’t know places still exist like Okemah. A true western, red brick and sun burnt town (106 degrees, 90% humidity). No strip malls. Nothing but farms surrounding. I can see why Woody was a sign painter. The sun peels the paint off of the signs as soon as they are painted.

See for yourself (you can view them at a higher resolution at):
