Elvis Presley. Oil On Canvas.

Elvis Presley was born on the 8th of January 1935.  He would have been 80 years old on Thursday. Many have tried to emulate him, none succeeded. There could only be one Elvis.

This painting is my tribute to him. I like Elvis. I hope I have done him justice. I tried hard. I am quite pleased with it, although whatever I paint, I always think I could have done better.

Elvis Presley. The King.
Oil on canvas.


  1. I'm liking it John. Got me wondering what an 80 year old Elvis would look like though...hmmm

  2. You did a marvelous painting. I admire all of your efforts of course. This one is dead on. The King would be proud.

  3. Are you kidding? This is FANTASTIC! Your really captured him perfectly.
    I also like Elvis Presley, very much.
    Once again, this is a very, very good likeness of him. You should be proud of it.

  4. I'm not a big Elvis fan, but the painting is great. You really have the gift.

  5. It's truly a fantastic painting. I love it, and you did capture a genuine likeness of the "king".
