Jan Berry Portrait – Available for Purchase

By Jill Gibson

Colored pencil portrait by Jan’s former girlfriend and songwriting partner.

From a photograph of Jan in the studio, taken by Jill circa 1964.

The music notes in the background are from Jan’s authentic original music charts for two songs by Jan & Dean:

“When It’s Over” — 1964
“It’s a Shame to Say Goodbye” — 1965

Jill co-wrote these songs, with music arrangements by Jan.

This image appeared on the cover of the album Encomium In Memoriam Vol. 1: Jan Berry of Jan & Dean (Cinecam Music, 2008). Produced by Cameron Michael Parkes & Mark A. Moore.

Jill sang on “When It’s Over” with Cameron Michael Parkes.
