“Hallelujah” it’s Done


Here is the latest installment in my Color of Music Guitar series titled: Hallelujah!

I called it Hallelujah because it reminds me of those beautiful imperfect Stained Glass windows you find in the old churches.

Also every time I look at it I can almost hear “Hallelujah” being played on it.

I absolutely love how vibrant this piece is and it’s unique among the other pieces in the series for two reasons

1-This is the smallest guitar I’ve worked on as it’s a child sized acoustic guitar (nice & light as a wall mounted Art piece)

and second

2-It’s the only one in the series that wasn’t a commission. Meaning, it’s looking for a musician or art lover to take it home.

I’ve listed it in my Esty Store if anyone is interested in purchasing it 🙂

Cheers,

Amanda

Photo Entry


I don’t really have a whole lot to say, just been busy working away.

That being the case, I thought instead of writing a lengthy entry on how things are progressing I’d simply show you.

Here’s what I’ve started or have done.

Most of these pieces have been posted to my Etsy store with the exception of the new entry into my “colour of music” series guitar that is still in progress.

 

Well back at it 🙂

Cheers,

Amanda

Electric Guitar Commission Complete


Signed, sealed and delivered to it’s new home in Moncton, New Brunswick.

This was an awesome piece to work on.

The couple who commissioned it, also own an acoustic guitar I did several years ago

Colour of Music (sold)

and were looking for something in a similar abstracted, splash style to compliment it for their music/stereo room.

So asides from those parameters I was given free reign on the project which is always nice 🙂

I knew the “she” out of the couple liked teal so I included that in my color choices and went for a 80’s galaxy rock type of feel.

Here’s how it turned out.

These mail really easily and come in two pieces if anyone else is interested in commissioning one I have them on sale until the end of August.

Check em out here.

They make awesome statement wall pieces, great for music/art lovers.

Cheers,

Amanda

 

 

80’s Galaxy style Electric Guitar


Well I started the Electric Guitar commission order from my Etsy site and it’s seems to be getting an 80’s Galaxy feel.

It’s not complete yet but I thought I would share a sneak peek.

I still have to re-assemble it and paint the front plate and put all the shiny silver hardware back on.

Speaking of silver, I plan on adding some silver flecks through out to give it a bit of glint.

Splash paint guitars are fun to paint and guaranteed unique though I have done other styles in the past like these two pieces.

These are also commission able and I currently have 2 electric guitars, 1 acoustic and 1 miniature guitar in stock  just waiting for someone to commission them.

Commission one here:

Also apparently the decision as to who will do the City Hall Public Art project has been moved to Tuesday so there’s still hope 🙂

Commission Finished-La Vie en Rose


Well I finished the “Homecoming” commission piece that I was given earlier this week and much to my relief the person who commissioned me loved it!

It’s always awesome when that happens.

Commissions can be a bit tricky sometimes because everyone has their own vision of what they want a piece to look like.

But so far so good with all my previous paintings.

So here it is, I think I’ll call it “La Vie en Rose” because she was inspired by feminine Parisian colors.

While I’ve been waiting for paint to dry I’ve also done up some more jewelry pieces for my Etsy shop you can check them out and buy them here
