Eddie Van Halen RocknRoll Music Legend Wall Art Print on Quality Canvas or Premium Rag Cotton Paper Large Scale Big Sizes - Custom Available
In the heart of this vibrant oil portrait, the spirit of rock 'n' roll comes to life, embodied in the legendary figure of Eddie Van Halen. It's a canvas that pulsates with color, movement, and an undeniable rock star quality that ignites the senses and stirs the soul. When the idea of this painting took shape, it was fueled by more than just artistic inspiration; it was a labor of love. My husband, JC, shared my excitement as we eagerly anticipated the outcome. He recognized that my best work emerges when there's a personal connection with the muse, and this painting was no exception. This portrait, however, carries a deeper layer of significance. It's a heartfelt tribute to my older brother, Jeff, a man who's lived and breathed classic rock, hair bands, and the electrifying music of Van Halen. In a college fund-raiser performance, Jeff took on the role of Eddie Van Halen with boundless enthusiasm. Armed with nothing but his passion and creativity, he crafted a wooden replica of Eddie's iconic guitar, complete with red paint, black electrical tape, and white accents. It was a testament to the transformative power of music, turning air guitar into tangible art. The memories of our youth, of joyous rides down backroads, belting out anthems like "HOW DO I KNOW WHEN IT'S LOVE..." form a cherished backdrop to this painting. We were fortunate to have experienced the era of Van Halen, a band that transcended generations, and Eddie Van Halen, a legendary guitarist whose influence knows no bounds. This portrait is more than just a tribute; it's a homage to the larger-than-life personalities, the charismatic showmen, and the rock stars who shaped our youth. It's a celebration of their music, their impact, and the unforgettable moments they've gifted us. I paint those who change the world, those who inspire and unite us through their art. May this portrait serve as a timeless reminder of the exhilaration, the camaraderie, and the unforgettable magic that rock 'n' roll and legends like Eddie Van Halen have brought into our lives. It's a piece of art that captures not only his essence but also the essence of an era that continues to resonate in our hearts and memories.

These are all available in full original color or vintage black and white, just mention it in the comments or shoot me over a quick message. See photos above for color and greyscale examples.

Rag Cotton Paper prints are on Super Premium 100% cotton rag cotton paper ( the kind that lasts for 100s of years) This paper is GORGEOUS y'all. It has a soft, subtle texture and it just really looks super expensive... because it is super expensive.
The paper prints are limited edition signed and numbered collector's pieces ( hand signed by the artist in the studio). That makes them more valuable some day, we hope and pray.
The size of the print is the actual paper size. Theres a 1 inch white border around the art and the original signature and numbers are signed in the white portion at the bottom of the art.
These are not framed. It's just the fine art rag cotton paper print, signed and numbered rolled up and placed in a protective shipping tube.
Canvas prints are printed on 100% Cotton Museum Quality Canvas ( the same stuff you'd find in a fancy smancy art gallery... wait, maybe I am a fancy smancy art gallery?)
Rolled canvas prints - That just means that the wooden part doesn't come with it. It's just the canvas print rolled up and shipped in a tube like the paper one's. This is a perfect print of the original art with the edges extended a full 2.5 inches all the way around. That gives you plenty of extra for stretching your own canvas on either the skinny .75 thickness stretcher bars or the 1.5" gallery wrapped thickness. ( See the photo above on the listing to explain the differences between options.)
Stretched canvas prints - That just means that the wooden part, the framework behind the canvas, is indeed included. Stretched canvas is ready to hang right out of the box. .75 is the skinnier frame that you'd want if you're going to add a decorative frame around the canvas. You know, like a pretty, stylish, cool or funky frame. Anyway, if you want to frame your stretched canvas, go with the skinnier .75 option. If you want the gallery wrapped look, you'll want to choose the 1.5 thickness, for that thicker and bulkier side profile fine art gallery look. Both of these have finished edges all the way around so they look great right out of the box. Both are ready to hang, with or without framing. ( See the photo above on the listing to explain the differences between options.) Same with the canvas prints, no frames or decorative room stuff. Just the artwork.
I'm the artist, Marnie Miller, and I promise you this; I'm right here in the slap dab middle of it every single day and not a print leaves this studio that I didn't touch, inspect and verify clarity, color and the integrity of the artwork, MYSELF. Art is not what I do, it's who I am. This my dream and my life. I want you to LOVE your art and treat me like a friend. That's my quest.
I do take custom commissions from time to time. If you have an interesting idea or would like to talk about commissioning original art, I'm all ears. Lets talk about it. I LOVE new ideas and people... so people with new ideas are like biscuits and gravy!!! Fantastic.

Original art is usually a mixture of mediums ranging from watercolor, oil, acrylic and textiles... Sometimes leaves and sticks. The creative process is most unpredictable. Each piece is well protected with three coats of heirloom quality clear acrylic and will not yellow or discolor over time. I cant stress the importance of protecting you original art from water damage, excess moisture, condensation or extreme heat. I don't recommend glass over any original artwork unless it is recessed in a shadow box type frame. When framing prints, be sure to use only acid free materials and galvanized or stainless metals. If you have questions about mounting, hanging or storing your art, don't hesitate to message me. I'm here to help.
