Hillbillies painted on windows.

The first picture isn’t on glass, but it’s similar to other work I’ve seen in this area, probably the same artist. This piece was at the Sevier County Fairgrounds, about 5 years ago, and might as yet be stored there. The characters depicted on it look like the ones on the windows of the Thrifty Center, a store on Chapman Highway, in South Knoxville, near Seymour. Those windows have since been changed, and the characters are gone; but if anyone knows about the artist, any other locations of his work, or has pictures, please contact me. I want to duplicate the style on some projects.

The second picture is from Uncle Easy’s Pawn, also on Chapman Highway. Those window advertisements are still there, as of writing this. I’m wondering if they’re both rendered by the same guy.
