This old button accordion belonged to my wife's Great-Grandmother who apparently got it when she was a little girl. I have simplified it and left off a lot of the graphics but have tried to loosely interpret the age of the instrument. It is painted with a combination of Winsor and Newton, Daniel Smith, and 18th century reproduction watercolor paints on Arches 140# paper.
The original has been sold and is owned by the accordion player for the Celtic rock band, "The Mighty Regis."
