Dolly Parton will be latest artist immortalized with a mural on Opry Plaza at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
The Opry took to Facebook to post a time-lapse video of the mural being completed. Created by Nashville artist Scott Guion, the painting took a mere 35 seconds to complete. Just kidding, the mural took much longer than that, but the Opry was kind enough to condense the video. Fans can watch the painting come to life as Scott creates his masterpiece.
Scott was so proud of his work, he shared his work on his own Instagram page and expressed his love of Dolly Parton. “I finished another panel out at The Grand Ole Opry—8’x8’ paint on plywood. Like everyone on the planet, I have loved Dolly my whole life. Thank you @opry #dollyparton.”
Dolly’s portrait is one of a series of 8’x8’ portraits of Opry legends old and new. Scott began the series with Little Jimmy Dickens, and plans more to come.
The icon has a long standing relationship with the Opry. She first performed on the Opry stage at 10-years-old and then became a member on January 4, 1969.
