Music in the Soul
As many of you know, art is a hobby of mine. A hobby that I love dearly, but a hobby none the less. I work full-time for a university that specializes in entertainment media (entertainment/music business, recording arts, film, gaming, etc.) I have to be the luckiest girl in the world - I get to mentor and teach students about marketing, meet lots of interesting people in the entertainment industry, and work on some really cool special projects. The latest is a guitar design project in partnership with Dean Guitars where students have the opportunity pitch a product idea and business plan to a major guitar manufacturer. It's a really awesome project and I have had so much fun working on it!
I love music - and draw a lot of inspiration from it. So when my dear friend Kati asked me to create a rock-n-roll themed painting for her baby boy's nursery, a guitar instantly popped into my head...I'm sure I was influenced by some of the cool presentations I've been exposed to lately but I can assure you that the design was 100% my own.
The background color is a fairly new color I'm trying out called Shadow Violet. The color separates as it dries. It turned out a little darker than I expected but I'm excited to use it again.
