Mixed Media Canvas with Guitar  | Hobbyideas
Elvis Presley the “King of Rock and Roll” who was a rage in his times is what we have captured on this canvas. Using various mixed materials like the actual leather for the shoulder lines and a lot of bling radiating to depict that era and those times. 

Sparkling mosaic chips have been brought together in a pattern to give this guitar a vintage look. It looks so beautiful and can be hung on a feature wall in your music room or study. It would be a great gift that would be appreciated by someone who plays instruments or a guitar for that matter.
