My inspiration for this came from an Xavier Cugat painting that I have. After my girls left the souvenir guitars without strings, I just couldn’t stand the thought of them ending up in the trash. So, channeling the energies of Mark Montano and Kathy Cano-Murillo, I set out to make them into something that would make me smile every time I saw them. Using oil paint pens, thrifted brooches and rhinestones, I let my imagination guide my hands and this is the result. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
