Record Painting

This is my first painting that I did on an LP record. I've always loved records. I like to make boxes out of old record covers. I always have these left over records-all of which have a pretty bad sound. So I thought of this idea of recycling the records and painting on them. First, I gesso the record. Then I paint it in acrylic. It is then coated in acrylic matte varnish. I've done 2 now. They are kind of rock and roll. I want to make some more like these, but also with a more retro-pop feel. Probably martini influenced. They look pretty groovy hanging on the wall. Records naturally look good on a wall, it's the circular shape.
