This painting of Willie Nelson graced the cover of the Texas Almanac 2012–2013, the book my wife, Elizabeth, has edited for 12 years. When I met Willie for the first time, I was taking photographs and sensed the historic nature of the event, where Willie was opening Willie’s Place at Carl’s Corner, an entertainment business that also had a biodiesel component. Although the entertainment venue is now closed, Willie’s continued support of the biodiesel movement gave me a sense of a man who loves people and the land around him.
