Alex Miles: A Jeff Lynne Water Colour Surprise!
#818: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Undoubtedly, one of the highlights of 2014 for me was being introduced to the musical talents of Alex Miles by Jib Khan [from ELOBF recommended artiste Starflight]. Her beautiful vocal and piano interpretation of Jeff Lynne's ELO anthem "Mr. Blue Sky" as well as her eponymously entitled ten track debut album continue to be an absolute delight. Alex contacted me earlier this week with the exciting news that she had been given a wonderful water colour portrait of Jeff Lynne as a gift at a recent gig by friend and artist Ian Morgan.
Ian also contacted me at ELOBF this week with a scan of the painting presented to Alex plus three other examples of his excellent water colour portraits of Mick Jagger, Pete Townshend and Elvis Presley. Ian also told me that his next subject matter will be Freddie Mercury with The Beatles following thereafter.
Yours Truly KJS has asked Ian to advise me a price for mounted prints of his fantastic Jeff Lynne portrait [including P+P] as well as information on how folks can order/pay accordingly. Ian doesn't have a web site but he can be contacted via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or via his Facebook page thus:
ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] recommends Ian Morgan and Alex Miles to those enlightened folks who also like ELO, Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, 'Brum Beat', The Idle Race, The Move, The Beatles and related artistes.
Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 21-Dec-2014
