As an abstract, this speaks to me. Great work.

thank you. It took about 3 weeks but thats because its oil paint and it takes days to dry between layers.

thank you very much. Thats kind of the idea, hyperrealism that almost looks abstract. I'll be exploring that more in the future :)

I was wondering if you played an instrument, seeing that you paint them so much

I play the piano/keyboard a little but thats about it. I just like instruments as subject matter, most have beautiful design and great textures.
