Strings Attached

I’m really not sure what to write about today, but I have a painting I completed this morning that I wanted to share, so I’ll just leave you with that. Here goes.

Yeah you get the point
One fish, Two fish, Red fish, Blue fish

And TA DA!

A blog reader commented on the first painting I did in this series (of the acoustic guitar) and suggested I title it “Strings Attached.” I love the title, but I’m actually going to use it for the whole series of paintings instead. So this one would be the third in the series. Here it is displayed with the Electric Guitar.

As someone with no musical talent, experience, or even much interest, I sure do paint a lot of instruments eh? I’m not gonna lie, I actually had to Google search “Saxophone” to get an idea of what one looks like since I don’t think I’ve ever seen one up close… maybe at a concert but I was probably distracted by the yummy musicians… Just being honest!

In other news, now that my blog is self hosted, I was able to create an online store. If you’re interested in this painting, check it out here.

Leave a comment (because I LOVE comments…online equivalent to getting snail mail!) and let me know what instrument you’d like to see next in the series. I’m thinking either a violin or a piano… 

Have a lovely weekend everyone! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

      Thank you Lindsay. You are very lucky. My musical exposure as a child was probably limited to my parents Abba CD and my public school music class where we had to play to recorder.

    I, on the other hand, couldn’t live without music … jazz, mainly. Like the painting, though. Keyboard would be an interesting subject … or how about an oboe 🙂

      Thanks for the suggestion Bud. I’m gonna have to ask my good friends at google what an oboe is first 😉

    Wow! These paintings are fantastic – such striking colours. A violin sounds like a good idea; or a trumpet, harp…?

      Thanks! I think I like the idea of doing a violin one next. Great suggestion 🙂

    These are just extraordinary! Beautiful work. My husband would be drooling over the guitar if he were here to see 🙂
