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.
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:
2-Sanded and primed
3-background roughed out
4-background details added
5-addition of the hands
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Oh and I’ve added a commission gallery where I’ll be putting all the artwork that I receive as commissions.
Cheers for now!
