Stephen Wilson Studio Willie Nelson's Greatest Hits
Embroidery stitched directly through a vinyl record sleeve.
12x12x2 inches, framed in acrylic.
Edition of 8, plus one artist's proof.
I chose the greatest hits album as my first Willie Nelson album because it is my favorite album cover of his. Most of his album covers feature black and white photos of him or a lot of typography. This album features a paint by numbers style of painting of Willie with simple text. I love the style of the painting and though it would make for a great embroidered background. I stitched the album in over 50 colors of thick wool thread directly through the vintage album cover. The logo was created as a patch and mounted at the end.
