Awhile back I posted a series of paintings of a friend’s fiddle. It’s seen a lot of wear and tear, which gives it so much character. I love the scars that document the roadmap of its time in the world. It’s a good reminder that all the bumps and bruises we all accumulate along the way are the things that set us apart, and they don’t make us any less beautiful.
I decided to put the four paintings together as a print, which is now available here on a variety of products.
