Painted vinyl record. Butterflies 2.

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.

Old record - new life

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.
