Arizona based artist Daniel Edlen paints portraits of musicians and entertainers with white acrylic on good old fashioned vinyl LPs.
A life long lover of music, he began selling them in late 2006 when a friend spotted them in his studio and suggested he offer them as holiday gifts. Since then, Daniel has been showing in galleries and selling them online.
