Ukulele by robrey Ukulele by robrey
Oil, 18 x 24 inches

My friend and musician, Amanda Penecale, came to visit a while back. While she sat on my couch in the window light playing a few songs on her ukulele, I couldn't help but take the opportunity to plan a painting. For the full experience, go take a listen to her music here: [link]

How can you prove that this is traditional art? Do you have a picture of it?
It does not look like traditional, more on digital:D (Big Grin)

Sent this to my friend who had Hand surgery this morning, and this really lightened her heart.
She is a ukulele player and looks very much like Amanda.
My message to her was to let her ukulele rest, so they both could heal.
Your painting expressed that so well.
Thank you for such a BEAUTIFUL painting! Glad I found you.

Exquisite control. The lone strap going to her shoulder is strange and just a little observation...you have four tune keys on a five string instrument...Beautiful palette.
