The Lonely Cello

lonely cello

This is the cello I am "recreating" for a project called "The Painted Violin." After these photos were taken, I sanded the bastard down on my driveway. I did got a bit too zealous with my Bosch orbital and took down a corner a bit much. I got sunburned in the process. I'm delicate like that. Anyway, the idea is to create a new piece of art with unplayable instruments. I snagged the ONLY cello so it has to be magnificent.

When completed, all of the pieces will then be shown and bid on for a fundraiser for our local conservatory. I have a few ideas spinning around in my head, but haven't gone any further. I'm thinking that I will be very sad to give it up when it's done.
