On 4th of July 2014, Danny Clinch posted a photo on twitter/instagram (and Joseph RTed) showing a photo of Willie Nelson that Joseph had painted on.
Joseph wrote in 'Notes from the Road' about painting on a portrait of Willie Nelson ... Willie - 3292007
... and a collaboration with Danny was mentioned in a Newsday interview
'The FedEx guy brings an unexpected surprise from famed rock photographer Danny Clinch, with whom Arthur is collaborating on some new paintings. Arthur rips open the packaging and pulls out 3-foot square, striking photos of Bj"rk, Tom Waits and Johnny Cash that Clinch took and that Arthur will paint over. Arthur recently completed one of Willie Nelson that may be displayed at the gallery opening [MOMAR]. "These are awesome," he says, holding the Bj"rk one up for further inspection. "I can't wait to work on these." He puts it down, knowing he will have to wait a bit to start yet another project.'
I think the Willie Nelson work that was posted is probably the one from 2007, but it could be a newer version or a sign that the collaboration might become an active concern again ... !!
