This oil painting is for sale at the Vault Fine Art Gallery in Tuscola Illinois. If you get a chance stop by and see the work.
So my husband had a twelve string hollow body Rickenbacker guitar. I say had, because not long after painting this image he sold the guitar to a guy who plays in a Tom Petty tribute band. If you know guitars you know this guitar needs to be in a Tom Petty tribute band. If you don't know guitars trust me watching his face as he played it, this guitar is well loved.
Now my husband sold the guitar because it is not his favorite. and if you look closely you can see that the guitar is actually missing two strings. My husband was furious with me that I would paint a painting like that. as he put it..."your an artist, just paint in the missing strings..." which seems kinda wrong to me. I mean it is a portrait. I paint the uniqueness of the individual. Beautiful warts and all.
