Nice work!

Love the idea having Elvis with his Cadillac in front of Sun Studio.

Suggest maybe having caddie a pink color and a younger Elvis.

Nice work. Gets the atmosphere: nothing wrong with art!

(Is it true that when Elvis ordered his first pink Caddy, he smashed a bunch of grapes on a white car, and pointing toward the mixture, told the salesman that's the color he wanted?)

I was looking at the photograph, and it occurred to me that the sand couldn't be pink, and that there's a pink hue to everything in the photo. Now, in this, I'm not entirely happy with Elvis's hair color, but everything seems to be more like it would be on a bright day. The Caddy is pretty much undisturbed - maybe a tad less intense.

Think this is maybe more how it looked, standing there?

Many thanks to everyone for their comments and feedback, always much appreciated. Actually, my Caddy is pink ....but I over-layed some color and texture on the image to darken it and lost the pink color....should have masked some of that out.

It's hard to find good quality images of Elvis at a young age to use in these art pieces, but I'll keep looking.
