Sunday In The Park

"Sunday in the Park" is the title of my 1st painting on an old LP record! The LP was from Capitol Records called "Love Story". The back cover of the jacket has a big long "love story" and it says it is easy listening as a result of an ambitious international project conceived by California composers and produced in Buenos Aires featuring Vlady & his orchestra. There is no date on it but it smells old!! Looks like maybe 50's or early 60's. Too bad I never listened to it, got it at a thrift store, now I'm curious as to what this "romance music" sounds like! Anyway, I painted on Side One, and the 3rd song was entitled Sunday in the Park. I didn't paint over that and it shows through her hair. I melted & shaped the edges of the LP where her wings are with my heat gun. (You can click on it to see a larger picture) Then my heat gun just melted itself! arrgh Good thing I didn't start a fire. I can't live without my heat gun!! So I'm shopping tomorrow. She's now listed on Ebay.

Very original and beautiful! What made you think to paint on old records? I love the bright colors you've used. Are they acrylic?

Oh Janet - this is soooooo cool!! A friend of mine painted a record for me before, but nothing like this. Nor did he melt the edges!! You are so creative!!! I absolutely love it!
