My latest commission build was for a very talented artist out of Denver, CO. Shawn Huckins is a modern day Michelangelo if I may say so myself! His paintings are works of art and I am so happy I could build him a violin.
We chose a Guadagnini copy because Shawn loves a deeper red varnish. We also antiqued the violin making its appearance to be much older then it is.
It turned out to be one of my favorite builds so far in my career. I delivered the violin in person to Colorado and we had a great time talking art and violin making! This was truly an experience of a lifetime for me getting to work with such an artist and build him a violin!
Do yourself a favor and go check out his fine art! It is incredible!
