I created this portrait due to the compelling inspiration of Buddy’s Holly's music and a curiosity regarding his concentrated lifetime.

A great deal of visual and biographical research went into the creation of this portrait.

I wanted to illustrate the irreplaceable spirit and charming moment in time that Buddy Holly communicates through his music.

"Look at Me"  Buddy Holly Portrait- 30" x 36"

Acrylic Painting on Canvas

Artist : Sara Morton

Buddy's eyes and eyebrows are crickets.   His teeth and lower lip are guitar picks.

"45 rpm" records become his head of hair.

The stratocaster guitar is the shape of his head and chin.

On his right ear, cheek and chin, are portraits of Maria Elena.  Peggy Sue's face (upside down) makes his left cheek.

His nose is a white Beechcraft Bonanza.  The "Winter Dance Party" banner is his upper lip.

There are "Coral" record labels on his chin, cheeks, and jaw line.

His neck is formed by the faces of Jerry Allison and Joe B. Mauldin of "The Crickets".

A "Coral" LP Label forms Buddy's Bow-Tie.
