Willie Nelson Pick of the Day: Design by C. P. Vaughn

I know I posted a picture of these beautiful new Willie Nelson guitar picks, but today Buddy Prewitt, lighting director for Willie Nelson and Family, sent a note wanting everyone to know that Willie’s silouette on these latest picks was designed by Texas Artist C.P. Vaughn.   Buddy is the person charged with designing and ordering the guitar picks for Willie Nelson and Family.

Buddy wrote:

“I haven’t noticed any credit to C.P. Vaughn, who did the sillouette that we have used on the latest black picks  …..  he worked on it for quite awhile, and it was certainly worth the wait.”

CP Vaughn has been capturing Willie Nelson’s likeness in pencil, pastel, oils and acrylics for decades; but these guitar picks might  be his tinest canvas yet.     You can enjoy more of CP’s paintings of Willie Nelson, see his other art, or commission him to paint your portrait, at his website:

Robert Swain, “The PicKing” has been producing guitar picks for Willie Nelson and Family for the past 12 years.   Budrock works with artists and with Swain on designs that can fit on those tiny plastic picks.  

 By the way, if any band or any person needs guitar picks, you can contact budrock@willienelson.com and he will get Robert’s contact information to you.

It’s so fun to collect Willie Nelson guitar picks; and these are especially beautiful.
