This is my fiance’ guitar. It was well worn on the paint. He decided he wanted it woodburned. Then he decided he wanted a cajun theme. So I started by drawing and burning the alligator. And each time he decided what he wanted next I would draw and woodburn it. Then I knew I had to come up with something for the background. That is how the net and nails came about.

It may seem like an odd statement, but your work seems to carry a richness of tradition that you have to live. I really like your work.

I totally agree you get into the depth of the art and you seem to bring out the soul of the piece.

Thank you Jim and Jim :) .... I really had thought I ran into a roadblock and we did alot of thinking and it just came to me to make it look like it was nailed and let me tell you once I started drawing the net and trying to make it look real I goofed many times so that is when I decided to make it look like it had got caught up on existing nails… so it worked out in the long run …. and I was relieved as this was something new for me all together…. I had never drawn any of these before this… he really challenged me for sure lol…

Well done, you have truly captured the Cajun way of life on this guitar! Like the guitar says, “Let the Good Time Roll! Are you a relocated Louisiana native?

You have done well capturing the “bon temps” of the Cajun culture. BTW, I am from Lafayette, LA, so I get to live this rich culture EVERY day! Born and raised in south Louisiana and have lived here all my life.

Thank you Cajunpen and Don Broussard…. My family are of Cajun French and Native … My father’s family spoke it fluently and in fact don’t know exactly how old he was before he learned English lol. I myself lived in Southeast Texas all my life until last year. My fiance’ and I will be moving around Lafayette or Lake Charles around beginning of year. You can take me from the south…. But never take the south out of me. I can’t wait to get my hands on some spicy crawfish!!!!!!!! :D That is just one of the many things I miss! Southern hospitality :)
Let the Good Times Roll my friends :)
