Jacks' Guitar

A dear old friend passed away back in December. He had an awesome guitar collection. Some of the guitars were given to my husband. One , we found out, was warped beyond repair. I decided to "alter" it...."shrinalize" it.....whatever you would like to call order to keep the energy alive.

It is a work in progress (what seems to be my usual means of getting something done....time in my studio seems to be rare at the moment).

I've glued things, painted, sanded, used charcoal and beeswax. I'm trying not to overwork it. My husband thinks it has taken on a "mexican" flair, which is not my intention....but then.....I rarely plan anything.
