SMASH HIT: MARC LACOURCIERE’S “FENDER LEGENDS” PAINTING

Within minutes of its unveiling onboard the recent Rock Legends Cruise III, the “Fender Legends” painting created by world-renowned fine artist Marc Lacourciere was a smash hit.

Lacourciere — a proud supporter of the Native American Heritage Association and their past three Rock Legends Cruises  simply wowed the crowd, quickly selling five pieces of his epic “Fender Legends” that features thirty-two Fender guitarists all on one canvas. Only proving that good news travels fast, Marc sold another five shortly after his return to land.

Each of the “Fender Legends” pieces sold includes an individual sketch on the back of one of the artists featured making each truly unique.

The ones spoken for thus far include Leo Fender, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, David Gilmour, George Harrison, Dusty Hill, Bruce Springsteen, Keith Urban, Bob Dylan and Ronnie Wood, with interest already expressed in Jimi Hendrix, Keith Richards and Jeff Beck.

A brief video of Marc creating the work can be seen on his site at www.musicfineart.com/art/fender.php.

During the cruise, Marc was able to present the legendary Alice Cooper with a “Welcome to my Nightmare” piece that he created last year, which made for another dream come true.

Marc plans to continue capturing some of rock’s greatest musicians with future works.

“I’ve always been a huge music fan and thought that it would be a personal challenge to depict some of the great music legends that I have always admired,”

What’s on the horizon? AC/DC, Pete Townshend and The Who.
