If so, check out the carving post. I just picked up on an old thread about our modest hut and posted some pics.

Why do women (naked) look so great on velvet?

Psycho Tiki,
That is a super cool painting! Great find! I'm seriously jealous! It looks like a photograph!

Thanks! Don't know much at all about the artist, but whoever painted this one did a great job. I agree about the "tan lines", not sure why the artist painted the woman this way, but it sure makes a great conversation piece.

I wish more people posted their velvets here!

Nice quintessential velvet Elvis, the King was never so vilified as to have his likeness smattered in the vogue of velvet artistry!

My weekend consisted of purging some of my baggage at the local flea market, so I was more on the disposal end of merchandising than acquiring more stuff, in fact, I sit surrounded by boxes of collectibles past I must dispose of via craigslist or Ebay...anyhow, I did make a small pass through the sellers, which were abundant, however void of any tiki I didn't already have to find this for $5.00...






I tend to stick with the serene village or nude velvets, if I didn't, I would be in BIG trouble. I always seem to have a difficult time discerning the name of the artist. I think this one is by an artist named C Haluna? The sticker on the back says it is from "Proctors, Livermore California". No date.

PTD that one with the tan lines is cool....and speaking of velvet Elvis, here is a great new local tequila bar that features a dozen velvet Elvi on display and the curved ceiling.

Did someone say Velvet Elvis? I have quite a few of them (I am kind of an addict) and these are my two new ones.



Excellent version of him crying :




This pretty much is my favorite piece so far. The pic doesn't do it justice. Just need a better frame:

Hello
Been looking around for a while on TC. First post here. We are still new to collecting, so here is our first velvet! Its 3D, huge, 50" x 28.
Its raised off the surface.

Picked up this velvet today...


Very simplistic in artwork, but I much liken it to my black light velvet poster days!
