A little while back, while surveying a large heap of trash
for assorted gems and keepers, I came across a cardboard box full
of records.

Into the van it went...and when I got home I soon discovered they
were overall in bad shape.
Scratched, some slightly warped.
A few keepers, but others were just horrid music or not playable due to skipping.
Never did thrown them out... glad I didn't,,, cause I'm now making record art.

Priming them first, then using multi-media....acrylic, spray paint, collage...
I've got so much vigor and excitement--- alot of fun.
Definitely in the POP ART mood.

Here are a few samples.

Let me know what you think

thanks guys..

kal as far as price... from one MW member to another...
$18 CAN

not too sure about shipping rates going your way--but I'm sure
that can be figured out rather easily...


here are a few more samples..
