Guitar Reverie

Close ups

Acrylic, Pitt Pen, and a skosh of colored pencil. Approx. 8 1/2 x 6 3/4 on paper.

This is my entry in Edward Burton's sketch book for The Flying Moleskins. Edward is a fine gentleman and an accomplished artist. Please do yourself a favor and check out his work HERE.

Edward's theme was "Music". I used to play guitar in country rock bands many beers...err..years ago.
My favorite guitar was a Fender Stratocaster...which I still own.This painting is an attempt to show the musician playing in a reverie. Practically seeing the notes drift through the air...Very much like you artists when you get caught up in the flow, and magical things happen from out of nowhere upon your canvas.

I don't know how successful my attempt was, but that's my story and I'm stickin' to it! :lol:

James 4:2 You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God.


  1. I can see those gals swooning at your feet as your serenaded them with your guitar back in the day. Love the composition and the warm colors. Lucky Edward!

  2. yes...you succeeded! Nicely done!

  3. Definitely a powerful, mood setting piece, Dean. What a great artist you are!

  4. Lots of emotion in this one. Great Job!

  5. The light falling on the players says a lot about the kind of music he might be playing and it is a very well composed piece Dean!

  6. Wonderful firey colors Dean!

  7. Thank you, my friend! Wonderful job.
