Acrylic Painting of Poet/Musician Alan Cooper

"I live most of the year in Alma, New Brunswick, Canada, a small fishing village on the Bay of Fundy. I run Owl's Head Press, a poetry publishing house from my 120 year old homestead. I've been a full-time poet for 28 years, and have published 12 books. I was a member of the blues trio Isaac, Blewett and Cooper for a number of years and am now working solo. In 1990 I published a book of poems by the well-known American poet, Robert Bly. I've been married to Laurie Armstrong for 24 years, and we have a 21 year old daughter, Katie."

Have a look at his blogs!

So good to hear from you!And to see the painting from, I believe, the Broadway Cafe days. Not much music right now. I've written enough material for a new cd. But, and this is a big but, it will cost around $10,000.00. So I'm going to keep writing until I'm 59 and do a record for my 60th.

Hope you guys are doing fine. The painting is wonderful!
