This idea is not a new one, but a great one! I have to share a little history about myself here so you can understand my connection to vinyl.
My dad is a record collector, has been since, I don’t know, the 1950s? Anyway, he has over 25,000 records! 33s, 45s and 78s! I grew up hanging out with him in his “record room”, which at one point was nothing more than a big closet. I have fond memories of him introducing me to all kinds of music during the 70s and 80s. He has the top 100 Billboard hits from the 40s thru the early 90s!
I almost feel a little guilty defacing these records after having my dad pound into my head the “correct” way to handle them! However, I’ve told him my plans and I think he approves. Thanks to my dad for the doubles he had to spare! Hope you like them, dad!
Music has always been a huge thing in my life. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t listen to music every minute of the day. My brother is a musician. I even married a musician!
So, when I first started seeing recycled vinyl everywhere, I thought what a great idea for my paintings! I have wanted to paint in a round format and the records are perfect for this. They also have a built in hanger with the hole in the middle! This is available in my Etsy shop.
