This one makes me laugh. The original concept was much more formal, a couple of Robins with their eggs in a nest, in the spring. When I started to REALLY REALLY think about Robins, springtime, music, and what might make me laugh–  Rockin’ Robin by Bobby Day hopped in.

I took the classic version of a Robin painting and made it rockin’. The guitar is a Gibson ES350 played by Barney Kessel from the legendary Wrecking Crew session musicians. The leather jackets the Robins wear are inspired by one of my favorite bands of all time, The Ramones. Hey Ho, Let’s Go! Now they’re true Rockin’ Robins.
