Billie on the Record

Eleanora Fagen, Lady Day, Billie Holiday... Regardless of her moniker, there is not a jazz (or non-jazz) musician alive who isn't familiar with her. Every jazz vocalist has at least one or two albums of hers. 

Part of my "On the Record" series, Lady Day's portrait was painted with acrylic paints on a vinyl record. The record is glued onto a 12" wood round with hanging hardware affixed to the back.

  • Q: What is your return policy?
    A: Returns and exchanges can be made at any time. You will be refunded for everything except shipping.


  • Q: Does the painting or print arrive signed by the artist? If so, where?
    A: Yes. I sign all my paintings with paint in one of the bottom corners of the canvas, and all my prints with pencil in the bottom right corner of the print. I also include the print number in the bottom left corner of the print and the title in the middle.  


  • Q: What kind of paint is used? 
    A: Acrylic. I also use matte gel for texture and sometimes to create what I call a "faux frame," as on the Mad Dog and Raoul paintings.
    I finish all paintings with two coats of varnish. If you require an isolation layer, I can add one however that will increase the final cost. (An isolation layer is a transparent coat of gloss gel that is applied over the acrylic paint and under the coats of varnish. Its purpose is to allow future retouching of the painting, should there ever be a need for this.)

  • Q: On which medium does the artist paint?
    A: I usually paint on canvas however I also use wood panels.
