Damon Boelte, lead guitarist for Brothers, built a left handed Fender Telecaster and asked me to paint the body. Brothers are described by Hamish Robertson from The Delta Brilliant as “a splendid soul-stomping garage-door denting four-piece” and you can check out their music at www.brothersnyc.com
I focused on various aspects of Damon’s personality to come up with this concept. I then went to a few different bodegas for flowers that seemed right and also collected foliage like the ivy from neighboring Brooklyn gardens. This was all assembled as a still life on a table in my studio and I added the hummingbird and storm front from other photographs I had taken or found.
