This is Laquieda. She is my baby, so I always want her to look her best  Wink



I got the inspiration from the back of the "She's So Unusual" LP by Cyndi Lauper. For those who don't know, the back cover is the underside image of her white high heels, painted in Starry Night. I've Had the LP since I was 5.

that is GORGEOUS and you've totally inspired me to paint my old guitar, Bessie. ^_^

Just out of curiosity, do you have pictures of the LP you were talking about? I tried googling it, just because it sounded neat and couldn't find anything

this is the back cover of the LP


My favorite Cyndi quote:
"It's a good thing I won, otherwise this tiara would look awful silly"

I've had my guitar for 12 years now. I begged my mom for one for Christmas. We didnt have much money at the time, so she and my grandfather got me one from a pawn shop for $50. I would be lying if I said I took to it right away. I got frustrated and didnt play with it until 5 years later. I learned to (shame of shames) impress a boy. That's when I really fell in love with her. I named her Laquieda because it sounded like a sassy version of BB Kings "Lucille". She is, and always has been missing the high E string. Everytime I try to string it on, the string pops and usually ends up hitting me in the face, so I just went with it. I didnt paint her until about a year ago when i formed my now defunct band. Last Christmas I received a gorgeous black electric bat shaped guitar (I named her Lilith). But Laquieda will always be #1 in my heart.

P.S. Thank you all for your kind words!  Cheesy 
P.P.S. Love_me, it was all done freehand with super cheap acrylic paint, and then sprayed with a clear gloss acrylic.

That's neat! I got to see Van Gough's Starry Night in person. Really a wonderful experience if you ever get the chance. But the colors have a more greenish tinge in person.

Wow!  That is absoluetly gorgeous.   Shocked  I wish I were musically inclined, but I can't play to save my life.  I'd love to learn to play the guitar, though.  *sigh* Ah well...Maybe one day. Wink
