Happy Birthday

A painting of Bob Marley keeps watch over Trenchtown. (1996)

Today, February 6th is Bob Marley’s birthday (and mine as well), people around the world will be celebrating the King of Reggae in some fashion. There are countless festivals, concerts, art shows and lectures commemorating Bob’s music and universal message of peace, love and inity. Happy birthday Bob and Jah guide.

I’ve always admired this painting for its simplicity, it was painted by a Japanese fan of Bob some 20+ years ago. I’m not even sure if this image is still there or visible, last time I was in Trenchtown it had faded severely.
