The tapestries are original portraits of musical, theatrical, and sports personalities
painted in acrylic on 100% raw linen.
Brushes are used with this approach as the
 original painting size of 52" x 18" provides  length to reveal impressionist strokes of
the full body effects of the personalities in performance. 
Smaller linen sizes lend themselves to vocalist and historical personalities.
The edges of the linen are fringed becoming a featured characteristic to floating when framed. 
This approach was first introduced at the
Monterey Jazz Festival in California, 1985 and continues to be Wyatt's prized works.
