Fernando Sor Father of Classical Guitar Homage by John Doan

Fernado Sor Digital painting Deirdra Doan
I always wanted to paint Sor and give him some color. So I did a digital collage. 
 This past weekend John and I were on tour in Roseburg OR and Etna CA near Yreka  CA.

 In Roseburg Or over 400 people crowded into the Umpqua Symphony Association venue. It was amazing twice the size of the normal crowd!
People where crying.... In Etna hearts where touched and more tears and joy! John Doan has created a wonderful show about the life and times of Fernando Sor the Father of the Classical guitar. Our friend who was our host and Cheusa blogged about it here. His story touches the core of all of our life's journey.

Much of my art has been dedicated to getting this show off the ground.
I milk painted a table for show for the guitar to sit on and have been working on the PR graphics. As well as youtube video's. Sending Sor CD's to radio stations etc.

We have had almost 3 million hits on his Sor Harpolyre Youtube.

His new CD has my painting on it. It is called Homage to Fernando Sor.
One of our friends who does the music for the hit TV series NCSI plays it for his toddlers about 1 hour before bed time. They just start to mellow out and go to sleep in peace!!

Check it out here.

With the magic of photoshop the Sor guitar was put on the wall of this photo taken in Keiv Ukraine..ha...

Happy Christmas and soon.
