Sir Elton

by Sue Mayer
(Edmonton, Alberta, Canada)

This is a painting I did of Sir Elton John. I had taken photos while at a concert. The photo I used was a black and white which was displayed on a large screen above the stage where EJ was performing. I also took photos of him in color when it showed up on the screen. So this painting is really a compilation of the various photographs I took at the concert. It is on a cheap 16” x 20” canvas that I probably bought at a dollar store. I have been painting a few years and this is my first one of a person, so I know it’s not great. But I certainly enjoyed painting EJ… as much as I enjoyed his concert!
