Guitar


“Guitar” is a painting I did last year to be included in my first public showing. It was purchased by dear friends C&C.  I hope they have enjoyed owning it as much as I did painting it.  I love acoustic guitars: the way they sound, of course, but also the natural woods used in their construction. I love the grain of the wood, the sparkle of shiny buttons and pins, the smell of wood and glue when you first open the case of your new guitar… 

I think about the guitars I have known.  Some of them were built from exotic woods like brazilian rosewood, curly maple, matchbook spruces.  I know people who travel the world looking for exotic woods to use in the construction of fine instruments.  Also, there are thoughtful souls (and companies) trying to use engineered or replaceable woods with success. Wish other folks would stop using wood for foolish things and remember to save the best of it for really important things… like forests and fine guitars.

    I love this painting. If I had money, I would so buy it. 🙂

    I have a guitar-related blog, and I rotate header photos every once in a while. I would love to use this photo if you would allow. It would probably be up for 1 or 2 weeks, and it would be cropped to fit the header space, but I would put a link on my side bar crediting your work and linking to your blog. Let me know your thoughts. Very nice art!
