    Guitar Purgatory

    What I was after on this piece was a super surreal ambiance for a realistic guitar. On the north coast beach I frequent a lot I came upon a large piece of very weathered and large driftwood. The lighting was very intense and the guitar absorbed a lot of color. Took a lot of pics for ref purposes. Started cropping, resizing and reassembling driftwood into various shapes and forms using AR SP. Then knifed forms together keeping the guitar intact. Lots of things just started to happen, a driftwood lady appears on the left as if waiting for the musician to come and play for her.
    The textures of the driftwood and knife were great to play around with...TJ
