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.

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,

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

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
