    The highly polished mando back is certainly the picture's focus - the element that draws the eye - and the painting is really about your affection and respect for your instrument. Nice.

    Thumbs up Re: art

    I like it. A lot. And, like was said earlier, it's great to see such support of the arts.

    Fred,

    That's even more cool to know the instrument is one you built.
