"In Bob Dylan's extraordinary collection of paintings, "Bob Dylan: The Drawn Blank Series," we are given insight into the expressive, unvarnished way this artist approaches the world and reminded he is that rare person who can move effortlessly between music, word, ink, paint, as if he's just futzing around with a few different instruments in the studio. Yet again and again, he reflects life back to us with a truth and simplicity that defy words... Dylan drew the moody black-and-white sketches while on tour between the years 1989 and 1992, and in 2007 turned some of these drawings into more than 200 adding vibrant watercolors and gouaches...The naturalistic scenes record the world around him, observed between performances, and illustrate how his eye relentlessly pursues usually ignored people, buildings and common objects. He wrenches objects from the background â?? an outdated TV, Venetian blinds, empty doorways and alleys â?? and puts them center stage, unearthing a beauty in the bland.... the lady waiting at the bar in "Woman in Red Lion Pub" would never have dreamt her broad back would become the electric-red subject of a painting. But in her slanting, voluptuous silhouette, her choice of dress and hat, Dylan points out her power and sturdy elegance, qualities she herself seems unaware of. 
Judith Marjorie "Judy" Collins (born 1939), affectionately known as "Judy Blue Eyes", is an American singer and songwriter known for her eclectic tastes in the material she records (which has included folk music, show tunes, pop music, rock and roll and standards) and for her social activism. She was a major figure in the folk revival of the 1960s and recorded her own versions of important songs from the period, including Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man".
