JC bein' John Cougar, of course!  I grew up in Indiana, and adored him.  I'd cut out the shape with intentions of doing a virgin mary, and when I saw the challenge, this came to me.  The bottom is glued on plastic stones.. got the cardinals, since they're another Indiana thing.  Smiley

My husband and I graduated from Vincennes University, where, you guessed it, John Mellencamp was first promoted from. One of our music profs played on his first records. Very cool idea. It's definitely an Indiana native thing.

Ha ha!  I thought it would be Jesus Christ, or Johnny Cash . . . who is pretty much my Jesus Christ . . .  Cheesy

This is a great shrine!  I like all the different materials you used.  It reminds me a little bit of the folk art you see of old-time blues & country singers.  It keeps with that tradition really well.

This would go perfect in a little pink house!

Hoosier here, too, but I've been gone since the early 80's. Do I still count?

Way to go!

Hehehe.  I'm not.  Genetically a blend of IU and Notre Dame, but personally- I skipped outta Indiana as soon as I was old enough to do so.  I'm a happy UNO person.  Grin

I'm an IU girl.  Smiley

It's cool to see the Indiana stuff, I miss Indiana a lot, and I love your concept.  Smiley

But...  you know he's a jerk in real life right, lol?

He berates wait staff and says bad things about his fans.

He'd probably die if he saw himself called John Cougar these days too, lol.

Ha..I too grew up in Indiana- Bloomington by way of Brown County. My father went to HS with "the coog" and I remember when I was a girl going to some adult parties at the home of one of my parents friends , and there he was in all his Hoosier glory, sitting on a bar stool, singing and playing guitar. This was way back when he was called JohnNY Cougar and wore eye make-up on his album cover. I think someone at the record label was trying to pass him off as new wave. Also, one of my good childhood friends, Stevie, had a prominent part in the "Pink Houses" video.

So, needless to say- I love your piece. It brought up some good memories and made me homesick. Art moves you, right? Thanks.
