Hand Portrait - Beautiful!

Sun Jul 28, 2013 2:51 am

I normally don't care for Elvis oil paintings , they just never seem to catch the true essence of Elvis Presley just in the way as ETA's . But this hand painted oil portrait really caught my eye for it's remarkable likeness the artist has captured.
This was available on Ebay a few weeks ago and was way to expensive to bid , but I did save the image and have just got around to fixing the perspectives, and exposure and gamma settings of the image.
The painting is now relisted here-->

It's an interesting painting...nice work. To me, it looks like a 50's face with a 70's hairdo. I like it.

This painting was used as the front cover of the quite rare bootleg album "We'll Remember You", released in the late 70's or early 80's.

Nice work...indeed a '57 face in a 70's setting.

But my favorite artwork ever must be the front of the "Elvis in demand" lp, now that's a cool image!!

And the excellent one made from a 1968 pic, just beautiful.
