One more of my painted vinyls. Using silver pen on the records is very tricky - ink goes into the grooves and makes lines furry.
I love that red queen butterfly! Have painted it several times on rocks.

Last year the owner on NY APW gallery invited me to take part in the show featuring paintings on the old vinyl records. I bought a bunch of old discs in a thrift store and began to experiment.
The idea with butterflies sprang immediately to my mind, but I painted several other discs and a lot of try patches on spare records before came with a result that I liked.
It can be hung easily by putting a push pin through the middle hole. I especially love the fact that it can be hung in any position - the symmetry of the butterflies make the composition perfect any time.
Now it went to Rome to another exhibition of vinyl records - VINYL FACTORY Group Show (VINILIFICIOCREATIVO VOL.2) at the MondoPOP International Gallery.
