Here are a couple of my latest paintings still in progress. The first painting features another 45 record. This time it is The Rolling Stones' Satisfaction. I decided to invent my own sleeve for this one. So instead of a sleeve that has the record company's graphics, this will have an electronic circuit schematic. The circuit is from the early 1960's Maestro Fuzz-Tone pedal, a simple electronic that created the distorted guitar sound on the record. The fuzz guitar tone is the result of Keith plugging his guitar into this fuzz box that was then sent to a guitar amp. The tone is very distinct and it is the first thing you hear on the record. If you listen closley, you can hear Keith turn the fuzz tone pedal off and on throughout the song. Being a hobby guitar player, I picked up some knowledge of electronic circuits and came up with this schematic idea for this painting. Once I render all the detail in the paper sleeve, I will paint the circuit schematic on top.
The second one features one of those novelty drinking birds. He is standing on a box drinking an old fashion cocktail - which happens to be my new favorite adult beverage. These pictures also show how I transfer a photo image to a painting panel using graphite.
