My dear friends and neighbors
will sometimes give me things
they think I may like to paint.
This old broken down
guitar is an example of one
of those things.
It's been sitting in the corner
of my art room for a couple
of years waiting to be brought
back to life.
I had a design percolating
in my mind, now it was a matter
of putting it all together.
The same friend that gave me the guitar,
also gave me the cool wooden heart she'd
designed and had her husband cut out for her.
I designed a pattern for wings and the "Love"
sign, and my husband cut them out for me
on the scroll saw.
I strung beads where the tuning keys
I used my wood carving tools to
give the "Love" sign a little dimension.
I also decided to change the plain heart
into a flaming heart.
My husband made
sure every piece was secured
properly with a combination of
liquid nails and nails or screws.
Here's another view from the front.
I'm pleased with the way it
It was so much fun to create.
I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
Thank you for stopping by.
