The beau-beau guitar

A 1950s vintage Gibson acoustic guitar found at a pawn shop was the canvas for this amazing portrait done by Cosmo and Devos' favorite Aunt Lisa. Lisa and Uncle Jeff would dog sit every couple of months after we moved back to Seattle from Coeur d'Alene. They got to know the beau-beaus intimately. The guitar and the portrait was arranged by my wife Andi as a 10 anniversary gift in 2005 when the dogs were still with us. I was SO surprised and blown away by the incredible likeness of both dogs. Want to mention that Lisa is not a professional, just a very gifted and generous person. I will always treasure it. I just recently got around to taking a decent picture of the guitar. My fur-kids are with me every time I play.

Great likeness! And I can only imagine the guts it takes to do a portrait on a guitar; cheers for Lisa!!

WOW!What a grrrt piece of art. Daddy is Super thrilled. He likes the idea of a painting on your guitar very very much. He plays the guitar too and we love to lie down near him. Music always soothes us to sleep.
