black-eyed snakes paintings?

Recently i moved to a new place, it is a pity that i can not take all my favoute wall art of black-eyed snakes. I have been liked this band since my high school and those posters have been with me for so many years. Now i have to start it over to redecor my room. I was thinking of buying a few new canvas wall art about this band, i was thinking below website:

1. www.art.com
I had a few experience with them, great place to buy any posters and art prints online. But …. they changed for worse during last years. Hopefully management will focus again on the core of their business model – provide fast & inexpensive art prints with biggest selection in the world!. But the thing is they don’t have the posters of black-eyed snakes. I did a hard search,they don’t have posters of black-eyed snakes. Also they only sell prints, i was thinking having hand-painted oil paintings on canvas.

2. www.paintmyphotos.net
This website is specialized in custom artwork, mainly portrait from photo. Their price is ok, good thing is that they can turn the photos into different styles, such as impressional, realistic, artistic, pop art style and even knife paintings which is similar to Francois Neily’s artworks. I love this kind of art style, heavy paints, big brushstrokes and vibrant colors. I’ll try a 100cm x 100cm first to check the result.

3. www.cheapwallarts.com
This website only deal in hand-painted oil paintingss. I didn’t buy from them before. It is recommended by Franky, a friend of mine. He ordered a 20×24 painting less than $100 including the shipping cost. The price is very competitive and my friend is very happy with their quality. Although they don’t have the black-eyed snakes paintings on their website, but they offer custom painting service, i can send any pictures i like and turn into hand-painted oil painting. I was thinking of getting 5 pictures done from them. Their turnaround time is 15 days. That would be cool.

Any more ideas? If you guys have great place to buy black-eyed snake canvas art, please do let me know. Thanks a lot!

An Article from Barrett Chase about Black-eyed Snakes

The first time I saw the Black-eyed Snakes, I thought the frontman was having some sort of epileptic fit. He was thrashing around violently and screaming sounds that didn’t seem human, let alone lyrical. He looked and sounded like John Lee Hooker being electrocuted. Meanwhile, Smokin’ Brad Nelson and Big House Bobby Olson backed him up on guitar and drums with a demeanor that suggested they weren’t playing music, but butchering pigs. The whole sound seemed to reach into my chest and drag out my soul like a vine. This wasn’t a show, this was voodoo.

And I wasn’t the only affected one. The room had the atmosphere of a back-alley Rottweiler fight. We all felt like something lowdown and sordid was going on, as if the vice squad might crash in at any moment and haul us away. And on some level-the Minnesotan, Midwestern, Scandinavian level that makes us remain stoic, objective, and restrained-we believed that wouldn’t be such a bad thing. Obviously, this much fun couldn’t be good for us.

Later, like an addict, I would return to show after show, a nd learn that this maniacal persona calls himself “Chicken Bone George.” I also learned that when the spirit enters him, it has terrifying results, causing him to somersault off a drum kit and land flat on his back, to fall recklessly onto the floor and flip around, or even, godhelpus, cover Moby.

Since then, word of the group has spread. The threesome was voted “Minnesota’s Best New Band” by City Pages in Minneapolis and the reader’s choice for the same honor in Duluth’s Ripsaw. The band continues to pack hot, smoky rooms with freaked-out fans, and the icy Minnesota restraint seems to be melting just a touch. The Black-eyed Snakes are on to our dirty little secret. They know we’re hungry for a let-out, for the real deal, the greasy meal, the knife in the back, so to speak. And they’re going to give it to us, whether we like it our not.

BLACK-EYED SNAKES

There is a neighborhood inDuluth called Central Hillside. If anything depraved, tragic or just plain bad happens in this town, you can bet it will happen there. What most tourists don’t realize, as they ┬ásip strawberry malts on the rocky shore of Lake Superior, is that they are only three or four blocks from a knife in the back. Every town has such a neighborhood, I suppose. But don’t fear this hood; Central Hillside includes the boyhood home of Bob Dylan, the famed Sacred Heart Church, and nowThe Black-eyed Snakes.
