Davey Johnstone's Captain Fantastic Gibson CS Les Paul
Pamelina was commissioned through Gibson's Custom Shop to paint this guitar for Davey Johnstone to play during the Captain Fantastic 30th Anniversary tour. Pamelina re-creates other people's artwork under very special circumstances and only with the authorization of the artist.
Pamelina was sent the photo on the the right with a note saying this was a very special photo as Elton rarely poses for photos like this.
Lily Munster Gibson Les Paul
Pamelina was commissioned to paint Lily Munster, as you've never seen her before, on this Gibson for placement in a Halloween art show in Hollywood.
Union Jack Gibson Les Paul
Pamelina H. put her spin on the Union Jack for this Gibson. It was sold through the art gallery located at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in Hollywood. On the right you can see how the Sunset Marquis used a photo of the guitar on their key cards.
Johnny Cash Epiphone
This Epiphone was painted for auction at a Rock for MS event in San Francisco. It was important to pay homage to Jim Marshall, the photographer behind this iconic photo of Johnny Cash. Pamelina was fortunate to spend the evening with Jim and was in awe of the amount of alcohol and drugs the man could still consume in his 70's.
Zappa Gibson Les Paul
This Gibson was thought to be a lost instrument. When it was found, the owner sent it to Pamelina H. to apply Frank Zappa's portrait. It was in poor condition and was completely refurbished. The graphic art is a psychedelic fractal pattern, something Pamelina thought Frank would've liked.
This was not painted for Dweezil, but he did pose with it.
Sunset Gibson Les Paul
This Gibson was a restoration project. The badly damaged guitar was repaired, restored and customized with artwork. This is a simple artwork, but does so much for the guitar. Seascapes are special for Pamelina since she grew up near the ocean and spent a lot of time on the beach as a little girl.
Vampire Gibson Les Paul
This vampire artwork was the first painting done on a Gibson guitar by Pamelina. It was commissioned by the infamous artist Michael McNeilly.
President Obama Les Paul
Pamelina painted this Gibson to commemorate the election of president Barack Obama. It was sold to a man in Botswana, Africa. 50% of the profits went to Doc to docks, a non-profit organization that send used medical equipment from New York to Africa.
