GuitarTown guitar – “Dreaming In Fish”

Connie Pelzak Giant Gibson Guitar in WaukeshaI wanted to paint something that I hadn’t painted before and also represented Wisconsin.  Fishing is something that my family and friends are very involved in.  We spend many a day with friends at Lake Wisconsin catching, cooking and eating the fish found there.  I thought it would be fun to paint some game fish on my playable guitar.

Guitar Front:
The front shows a walleye, bluegill, and Muskie, with the hint of water spilling down from the front to the sides of the guitar.

Guitar Back:
The back of the guitar is an underwater view of the type of area filled with sunken branches favored by pan fish.

Neck & Headstock:
I painted a lure that my partner uses to fish for walleye.
