The Artist is Shy (so far)...

This blog was made for my husband, Victor S. McGuire, the artist.  Turns out he's too shy to promote his own work, so here I am to do it for him.  Everything he does is artistic, even the yards - they're gorgeous. 

What he's done most of his life is pen and ink drawings, mostly of wildlife, but he ventures out sometimes - did some antique planes, a firetruck.

He makes the frames too - this one is walnut with the bark still on.

Then he decided to paint murals on walls - one was over a hundred feet long.  He found he had a knack for creating bonsai.  Then came tattoos - OMG the second that needle touched the skin and the ink spread I swore there was no way - but when he wiped it off, it was like he was born to do them....magnificent!

Victor does remodeling for a living.  All of that is done with an artistic flair also. 

And now?  Now he is carefully, painstakingly handcrafting electric guitars with one-piece bodies.  He treats the wood but leaves it natural - no paint, no lacquer.  Here's one:

That's all for now.  What do you think?     B : )
