2016 was no different from past years. He had the good fortune of painting the great Robert Earl Keen. Keen commissioned Robby to paint himself and Lyle Lovett. This painting of Keen and Lovett was to be used for tour promotion. Robby said it was one of his many highlights of 2016.

In the midst of a very busy year, Robby also branched out from his paintings and art when he was asked to join Abe Partridge & the Psychedelic Peacocks as the band’s bassist. It was a nice change for the artist.
