Portrait of Elvis Presley "Graceland from the Other Side" painted in 1998, 48 in. x 60 in. Acrylic fluorescent and pearlescents on canvas with beautiful custom gold frame. ©1995-2014 Bill Foss all rights reserved 'Original Works' and 'Derivative Works' (an artistic rendition of a recognizeable classic) copyright(s) held with the Library of Congress.

When I sat down to paint 'the King' I wanted to portray the essence of his spirit coming through. The Dove in his heart symbolizing Holy Spirit, shines in the sunlight, reflecting pearlescent blues & violets, Graceland glows in the background, He is wearing a ring of his birth sign. In his hand, he's holding up the memory of his mother. ("Mama") Priscilla hovers on the right, Lisa Marie under the dove, and Desirea with a raven on her shoulder(the unsung daughter), Miss Tennessee on the left and Father Vernon, at the tomb with a spirit hand delivering a rose. The painting has several elements that glow under black light, and looks great in room lighting, under halogens, and even sunshine. One of my all time favorites in the "The Rock & Roll Art of Bill Foss" collection. This painting is a classic collector's item documenting the life of one of our greatest performers. This colorful masterwork could be hanging in your favorite room or establishment. Consider the possibility of owning this once in a lifetime opportunity.
