Sunset For A Surfer

Morgan’s Sunset is an art guitar I was commissioned to paint for a beautiful man who is fighting cancer, a very ugly disease that has touched us all.  His wife Rita wanted to surprise this once wild, crazy surfer with a big wave, or a sunset for his love of the ocean. Rita told me they get to the ocean as much as they possibly can, and enjoy the sunset together.

Close To My Heart

I put a whole lotta love  into this guitar because Morgan’s fight is something I know all too well. I was my fathers caregiver when he was 83 and going through the same battle as Morgan.  Changed me forever… both beautiful and sad…watching from the front row the circle of life.  Elmer was both the best Dad ever, and my best friend. An amazing teacher, artist, philosopher…a true Renaissance man.

Water, Waves, Sand And The Sun

I was slightly daunted at first as this was my first attempt with water and the sun. Using my guitar stains, my black ink pen, and a lot of acrylic white I eventually saw Morgan’s Sunset coming to life.

As you can see I think Rita and I brought a little joy and a big smile to the man with the guitar in his hand. God bless with light and love…MT
