I felt that the only way to capture the spirit of an iconic Guitar like this was through the art of oil painting. The subtleties of varnish and patina, shadow and light, are what makes this painting, technically, a portrait. While you may recognize the iconic shape and finish, this painting tells the story of this particular guitar just like the portrait of a person. Every chip, crack, or wear mark is another piece of it's history. Even the title of the painting hints at a story of how the guitar got it's name.
Lester is my husbands favorite guitar. Always has been and probable always will be.
