Title: “Permanent Wave” Size: 6″x 6″
This retro modern mixed media artwork is from my Mini Masterpiece Monday series. The black background and aqua pinstripe are hand painted with acrylics on 6″x6″ stretched canvas. It features a piece cut from a vintage record album sleeve. Canvas is painted around the edge and can be hung without a frame. Makes a unique personal gift for a music lover.
I salvage damaged record album covers and sleeves and incorporate them into fine art pieces, giving them a new life.

I have collection of 27 assorted vintage 10″ jazz records that I inherited from my dad, Ken Paylo. The artwork and size of the albums is so lovely that I decided to document them. My dad passed away in May of 2010 and I miss him dearly -posting this collection of records is a way to remember him and also share these little beauties with other record collectors and fans of Mid Century design. Cheers 🙂
