I Just Can’t Take My Rest

I Just Can’t Take My Rest

Size: 30” x 40”

“I Just can’t Take My Rest”, if taken in without commentary could simply be the imagery of a Bluesman sitting on a porch strumming away and relaxing. However, the Artist gleaned this particular line, as a concept and title, from one of Robert Johnson’s songs entitled, “32-20”. It’s a very dark song about a man who has possibly taken up with a woman he knows isn’t available for courting. Or, maybe, just maybe, considering Robert’s own rambling ways, the man in the song has owned up to his own infidelity, yet is now contemplating killing the woman he claims to love for the very same behavior. He can dish it, but he can’t take it. In the song, it’s revealed that the woman is known to be in possession of a 38 Special yet. the man speaks of his 32-20, his tool of choice. This toxic relationship is doomed to end in violence and heartache. The man’s mentality is in such disarray that he hasn’t been able to sleep the entire night. He has driven himself mad, wondering where she’s been, and is now waiting on the porch for her to come home…he’s been fuming and he has questions. 

“hey baby, where you stay last night 

Hey hey baby, where you stayed last night 

You didn't come home until the sun was shinin’ bright” 

Once again, this is a setting from the Artist’s imagination, however, its not clear as to whether Robert Johnson is speaking of his own experience or that of a situation he surely must have heard about. It could very well be the fanciful creation from Robert Johnson’s creative imagination meant for commentary on the issues that plagued him and the communities in which he found himself travelling and existing. There certainly doesn’t exist any information about the Delta Blues Man ever being attached to such a situation where he was accused of shooting a woman and its most likely the latter.  What do YOU think…? What do YOU see?  

“I Just can’t Take My Rest” is created by Artist Andre LeMoyne Miller on 30" x 48" gallery wrapped canvas...LARGE SCALE ARTIST ENHANCED PRINTS will be available for $1200 each.
