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,

Amanda

 

 

That I would be good


It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a video with one of my paintings.

Since I’m still feeling craptacular I thought it was only fitting to put this song

with this new unnamed piece. Continue reading

The colour of music


This is a piece I did back in 2005.

It’s an old guitar I got as a Christmas present one year when I was feeling especially ambitious.

I thought it would be a good idea to discover my hidden musical talents.

However, once I realized I couldn’t just pick it up and play I decided musical talents were overrated.

Well, here it is.


I finished “it”.

I’m not quite sure what “it” is, but I’m sure I’m finished because I’m tired and want to go to bed.

So, here you go. Seneca

You know how they liken the art an artist makes to a child, like you just gave birth to a piece.

Ya well, I’m not 100% sure yet,

(mainly because my judgment is slurred by need of sleep)

but I think this is the ugly one I put up for adoption. 😛

We’ll see how I feel in the morning.

Anyway, Goodnight and enjoy the video.
