1978 Guild S300D guitar, in watercolor and ink. By Lahle Wolfe December 31, 2013.

Guild S300D

This painting is of a particular guitar I bought for my husband because I wanted him to have something special. It is a 1977 Guild S300D. It has an ash body, mahogany neck with mother of pearl inlays and ebony fretboard. I was very blessed to find one on eBay years ago with its original case and, most important, original, working Super DiMarzio double humbucking pickups. Have mercy!

Birch Trees

Birch Trees — Marker and Sepia India Ink, December 27, 2004. I am a weather junky. I love spring, summer, fall, and winter. Especially winter. Bare trees get me going, thinking about spring and rebirth. I love seeing the structures of the trees that are hidden by their summer leaves. The shapes, twists, colors — especially after a rain when the wood turns darker and the earthy colors come in trunks and branches come alive. Source: Photography by James Dickens, 2003

"Crackers." Watercolor and India Ink on Bristol by Lahle Wolfe.


Crackers is a special horse with a special story. He suffered a near catastrophic injury and it was thought he would not recover. His owner decided to give this kindhearted horse a chance and turned him out to pasture in hopes he would at least live out his days in peace. One day, long after his injury, his owner saw Crackers trotting outside her window. Nothing short or miraculous, she wanted him to have love and leased him to another woman, Kathy, who had her own heartache to heal from. Together, Crackers and Kathy thrived and enjoyed many happy times together until it was time to let him retire.

Bruder, Watercolor Layer 1, by Lahle Wolfe


Bruder is an intelligent, handsome gelding that belonged to a friend of mine. She nurtured him, trained him, and loved him with all her heart. At 17.2 hands Bruder (Rio Del Oro) is more like a small dinosaur than a horse. He loves smelling women’s hair, and he loves his person. I met two of his cousins — equally tall (one is actually a full 18 hands), but not nearly as handsome as far as I am concerned. Of any horse I have met to date he has the largest feet.
