So I guess my wife has somewhat accepted my uke obsession because she commissioned a local artist to paint one of my cherised KoAloha's. (not what you think!)

The artist is Ricky Higgins & we have several others of his works. This one is on "mixed media" & I know that the photo from my phone really doesn't do it justice. Right now, its kicked another of his off the wall in a prominent place in our den!

He showcases his art all over the Southeast - here is his web page if anyone is interested:

That's pretty sick, what're the dimensions?

Oddly enough my heart beat faltered when I read your wife had your KoAloha painted.

Cool painting though!!

I just started 3 years ago at 49years old. I have got to say it is a fine way to pass the time. Pick up those brushes and let the paint fly! :)

Hmmm...just finished our home office and the walls need some decorating. Since Mrs. Bueller nixed the idea of letting me hang my ukuleles this might be a great option.
Thanks for sharing - they all look fantastic.

No problem - first $10,000 takes it. (I don't think I'll ever sell this one! Absolutely my favorite, by a long shot.)

I was willing to go $9,500 but forget it now :)
