Depicting country-music legend Patsy Cline in one of her typically elaborate costumes was the logical choice for painter Richard Waldrep. Cline’s jacket was blue in earlier versions of the artwork, but Waldrep altered it, providing a sharper contrast on the printed stamp and better representing Cline’s flair for showmanship.
