Folks have been asking about this Martin 000-15M (and the eleph... err... giraffe in the room), so here’s the story as best as I know it:
-
I bought it used. The woman who sold it to the shop had bought it at a fundraising auction for the hospital where her young son was being treated. She commissioned an artist to paint a giraffe on it because they were her son’s favorite, and she thought he’d have a fun time learning to play the guitar when he got better.
-
Unfortunately, he didn’t get better. When he passed away, she thought she might learn to play it herself, but she was too grief-stricken every time she picked it up to learn anything. So she hung it on her wall for 5-6 years.
-
Eventually she decided it needed to be in the hands of someone who would play it, so she sold it to a shop. I really didn’t plan on buying a guitar that day, but how could I not? I’m honored to be giving it another life, and even though I don’t know that family, I feel a special kind of responsibility every time I pick it up. -

Got asked to do a complementary lip consult by these beautiful ladies! Once, I was able to re-assure them, they puckered up and kissed me and my little daughter! #lips #beauty #giraffe #giraffemanor #kenya #safari #downtime #vacay !
Took a little break over the summer to spend time with my kiddos. A little hard to get back to it. Brush lettered quote from children's book, "Giraffe's Can't Dance". Added the giraffe from lawn fawn's Wild for You. Watercolored background. #gilesandreae #giraffescantdance #brushlettering #watercolor #lovethisquote #giraffe #lawnfawn

Peekaboo! We see u! Lol! The giraffe walked here and then stopped. I think it thought we could no longer see it. It is amazing how well these animals have adapted to blend in! Nature is amazing! #giraffe #sunrise #hideandseek #peekaboo #nature #amazing #wildlife #conservation #africa #southafrica #krugernationalpark #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #travel #iloveafrica
Baby #giraffe with its mother, #softpastel #pointillism. Finally finished!! Took me way too long to complete this piece, not in the number of hours I worked on it, but in all the time I wasn’t. I think I am focused again and will be posting more frequently like before. Final size is 7.5” x 9.5”. #art #art🎨 #artistic #drawing #dailyart #dailyarts #iartpost #instaart #bestpastelart #pastelart #chalk #stippling #animalart #wildlifeart #artistic_dome #artistic_share #artsrow #artscloud #artempire #mydrawing
Потому что... жираф - имеет язык черного цвета, длинной около 50 см, он настолько подвижный, что жираф может им не только доставать любимое лакомство, свежие и сочные листья акации с деревьев, но и кончиком языка ковырять у себя в ухе!

Because... giraffe - has a black tongue, about 50 cm long, so mobile that a giraffe can not only get a favorite treat, fresh and juicy acacia leaves from trees, but also with the tip of the tongue picking in your ear!
