The different look of this piece is due in part to an imperfection in my canvas. I was happy with the way my guy looked but a raised streak kept showing up in the canvas. A few streaks. I am not familiar with the cause because I have never had it happen before. I decided to keep applying thicker paint hoping for the streaks to go away. I may get to keep this for myself or one of my children if this did not do the trick. This is painted on a 12 x 24 x 2" canvas.
I took this picture a few years ago in Kentucky. I am not sure what you call this small guitar. A small guitar? I bet it has another name.
