painted strings event

goodness. what have i been up to??

that feels too complicated for me.  really more excitement than i can handle…but in a good way.

have been thinking about you though, and thinking that you would like to know about this finished violin that i just painted. after i figured out a game plan for this guy, it was alot of fun to do.

the waco symphony orchestra is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and i was asked to paint a violin for the painted strings benefit being held in their honor. the instruments will be auctioned off at a gala happening this fall and i am pumped to celebrate with them and give in this way.

it’s a good excuse to get dressed up, put your cutest shoes on, and bid on these painted, totally functional strings.

i began by sanding down the surface, priming the wood, and then laying down a first coat of this really beautiful green. obviously, after that…i went crazy.

the painting is a combination of acrylic & colored pencil // and here are a few fragments of the space.

i hope you like! let me know. i always love knowing what you think.

and if you’re interested in attending the gala to support the waco symphony this fall, please contact //
