Morning Glory Harp Designs


A customer liked this design but with butterflies instead of faries. They are also unsure about colours etc. so I painted the two samples above. Which do you prefer - the Adonis Blue butterfly version with chromium oxide green leaves, or the Peacock butterfly painted in metalic colours?

  6. Dear Jerry is so nice to see your BEAUTIFUL work!
    The two designs are both beautiful, one more sweet and romantic, the one with the metallic color more classic!
    Decoration for a girl, the first
    the other for a lady! I speak with sincerity, my point of view, if I can be useful!

  8. Hello Jerry
    Wonderful detailed work, both lovely, but I have to agree with Rita.It really depends on if the intrument is going to be used by a girl, or a mature person.
    Warmest regards.

  9. Gorgeous work, Jerry, and my favorite is the blue. I notice I'm outvoted here, which only goes to show that artistic taste is very individual.

  10. J'aime particulièrement le dessin avec le papillon bleu... cependant ce n'est que mon goût personnel car l'autre modèle est aussi très joli.
    Gros bisous

  11. Thanks everyone for your very kind comments. The difference in taste between an adult or someone younger is especially interesting as I have sent it to the customer where I think the mother and her young daughter are discussing between them which to go for.

  12. They are both beautiful but as blue is my favourite colour it has to be the blue one :)

  13. They are both really beautiful Jerry but as I have a real passion for colour and find it so uplifting there is no contest, it is unquestionably the blue one. I am rather flattered that my choice apparently shows I am less mature, I have always said I am still eighteen in my head! I like the blue with the fairies too so maybe I am even younger than that ;-) I also think the blue looks perfect with the colour of the wood. Do let us know which one your customer decides on.

    I left a late (sorry!!) comment on your previous post too.

  14. Oh this is difficult Jerry, both are so beautiful, but I think I would choose the metallic color. Wish you a great Sunday.

  15. Thanks also RR, SS, J & KB I love hearing all your opinions and as you can see, 'voting' was fairly evenly split. I've now heard back from the customer and I'm proud to announce that the winner is......(cue fanfare).... the metalic design with Peacock butterflies.

  18. I came across to check out the harp. I had no idea you did this type of thing. How beautiful!
    I LOVE the sound of a harp. There is something quite magical about them isn't there?
    I love both of the designs equally :0)

    1. Thank you Sandra, yes we like to make our harps look just how our customers want them to but in the end it's the sound that's the most important thing.
