Huladollsquidgirl Ukulele

Just in time for next week's Palm Beach Art & Music Festival, I finished painting my favorite tentacled cutie on the uke. Done in acrylics, she is one of a kind. I hope someone will fall in love and take her home. If not, no biggie - I'll be happy to keep her for myself. I'm still learning "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" anyways.

(UPDATE: Submitting this for Illustration Friday theme - "Spent." A bit of a stretch, but here it goes... The girl needs a break! She is "spent" from too much hula dancing.)

Your Huladollsquidgirl on the uke is fantastic! Great character that you have created. My husband Patsy is big in the ukulele community. A link to his music is on my site. Well done!
