The Guitarist

Mixed Media/Fiber     36“ W x 48″ L

Ever since my years in Chicago hanging out with friends in a smoky bar and listening to the music. I have always loved Blue Grass music. But Blue Grass music on top of Aspen Mountain, I can think of nothing more enjoyable. I was spending a long summer weekend in Aspen Colorado with two friends. On Sunday afternoon we decided to take the gondola to the top of Aspen mountain. I was literally blown away by the views and the fabulous music. The guitarist’s music was so engaging and echoed in the high mountains behind me. It was so much fun to watch his hands and his incredible string movements. As so many moving and beautiful moments in my life I was inspired to recreate this musician in fabric. My goal was to convey the joy surrounding him in this breath takingly beautiful place.  $1,700
