On a different Note…


I’m taking a slight break from Canvas Paintings & Jewelry to start work on a new entry into my Color of Music series.

I’ve had it in the back of my head that I’d love to do a gallery exhibit of a bunch of my painted instruments but so far every one I’ve done has sold not that I’m complaining ;), but it does makes it a tad difficult to put on an exhibit without any pieces in my possession lol.

So today I dug through my stash of goodies that I have squirreled away in my studio and picked out another guitar to start working on tonight. I had a few electrics, another child’s acoustic and this big acoustic that I thought would be a nice change since my last piece was an electric and the one before a child acoustic.

As you can tell, my dog likes to sleep in my studio 🙂 and couldn’t be bothered to move heh.

I have a general idea of what I want to do with this piece but I won’t tell at the moment until I start and sort things out 🙂 but stay tuned and I’ll post as I work on it over the next few days.

“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,

Guitar Commission-Part Three the conclusion


Well, the guitar commission is finally finished and delivered to the customer.

I’m still not quite sure if I like it with or without the hands better,

but it doesn’t matter since the customer is happy with it.

Just for fun, here’s a look at the progress again:

1-acoustic guitar

2-Sanded and primed

3-background roughed out

4-background details added

5-addition of the hands

6-hand details

7-re-assembled, signed and sealed. Only thing missing are the strings.

Now it’s going to live happily ever after mounted on a wall for display.

If you’d like to commission a used or broken instrument for display,  or any other artwork

email me at themilkeway@gmail.com

Oh and I’ve added a commission gallery where I’ll be putting all the artwork that I receive as commissions.

Cheers for now!

Guitar Commission-Part Two


There’s just something about painting 3D objects that’s a fun, fun change from canvas.

The guitar is progressing beautifully.

I’m just waiting for some of the detail work to dry before adding the hands.

Here’s a few pictures to show you the progress. Continue reading

Oops…


Right so I’m still working on the guitar commission but I hit a small snag.

See the person I’m doing the commission for wanted hands on the guitar as if they were playing.

Now see, me being the musically illiterate person I am goofed up.

How you might ask? Continue reading

Guitar Commission-Part One


As I mentioned in my previous post I’ve received a commission to paint an acoustic guitar.

For fun, I thought I’d post the progress here.

The guy who is commissioning it wanted a sense of abstracted hands moving/playing guitar.

Here’s the rough sketch he green lighted Continue reading
