Thats all for tonight… depending on whether or not my scheduled photo shoot for a lively engaged couple gets rained out or not, I might work on it some more tomorrow.
I’m super excited to finish this one! I’ll give you a hint about what my vision entails: once finished, I can post this piece in my Fangirl section too! 😉 Bonne nuit!
Yesterday, I began the background for “Semi Somus”, today I finished the rest. I couldn’t help myself and sprinkled glitter for stars. (I’ve been teased in the past for incorporating glitter in my work.) Anyway, here it is: “Semi Somus”. (LATIN NERD ALERT)
Night Owl – September 2010
On an episode of L.A. Ink, that I saw recently, a girl was getting a tattoo of a painting by the artist Brian M. Viveros. I thought it looked pretty awesome so I visited his website… I fell in love! He’s an artist of various mediums and all of it is beautiful. There’s not much I can say because the work really speaks for itself ( & the names of his pieces are amazing in their own right.) but I’ve picked a few of my favorites and I’d like to share them with you.

My guitar is coming right along. Besides minor touch-ups, I’m finished with the painting. After I lacquer the entire thing I’ll install all it’s hardware and fixtures, string it up… and viola! Complete.
|The Body so far.
I really wanted the background to be very, sort of, spacey. Wisps of gold swirls through the purple hues and gold and silver stars are scattered though out.
|No Hardware or Lacquer yet
I really didn’t know what to do with the neck. I finally ended up blending the dirrefent shades of purple as I did on the body and then sponged gold accross each of the frets. The most recent work I put into the piece was picking and shaving the paint off of each of the frets… it’s nearly impossible to tape each one off. Ryan showed me the easiest way to do this using an exacto knife.
It’s almost done!!! I’ll be customizing my acoustic next!!
Dave Matthews Band concert tomorrow night with Casey, Ryan, and Cromer!!! So excited!!
