This drawing is one of my bigger pieces at 36" x 72". It's of my beautiful, Epiphone Casino Sunburst electric guitar that I bought at Guitar Center up on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood about a year after Lynn and I got married. I never really practiced playing like I should have, but I absolutely loved how it looked and when I did play, the sound was incredible. During a time when I was freelancing and clients were taking forever and a day to pay (if ever), I had to sell it to pay taxes. That sucked.

The reason I've included this guitar in my "Happy Art" series, even though it wasn't from my childhood, I've included because of how I felt when I first picked it up, plugged it in and started play "House of the Rising Sun". I couldn't feel any cooler or be more happy than I did at that very moment.
