Although it may sound like a magnificent work of art or a style of painting, the reference to a Birmingham painting actually has nothing to do with visual arts. The phrase relates to "Paint Me a Birmingham," a song released separately by two country music performers in 2004. The song tells a poignant story about undying love through one man’s desire for an artist to “paint me a Birmingham.”
