You wouldn't have a photo of THAT, now?


I do. I am scanning photos and trying to get people to talk about the old restaurant but haven't had much time.

I will probably make a thread to post a series of pics and stories. I am considering whether or not this would make a good coffee table book or even just a small local history book, we have a couple of those. Some are pretty good.

Anybody recognize this style/artist? I've been walking past this painting for a year or so now. They want about $100 for it. It's very well done in a Witco-esque frame, but the subject matter won't go over well with my wife so there it sits. Sorry about the crappy photo of the signature. Hopefully it's recognizable.

The style is known as Mercado de Mexico.
The artist is Pintor Desconocido.

It is an excellent example of his work in this style.

"No aloha" and a bit cartoon-ish. I have no velvet paintings and Mrs. Bungalow is happy being about the only female nude around here, but... I favor the more realistic paintings.

I love how these female-non Aloha-velvets always get the boobs right but the face is all jacked. Guess they focus on the most important "parts"!

I would also bet they are always painted by men

Okay, here is a couple of velvets I recently passed on. I didn't get a chance to get a picture of them on here before I sold them so here they are to check out.

First one is of a young boy with a lei around his neck. It is signed in the corner "MIN". It measured about 15"x18" with the original old frame. It had an old 'How to Clean' label on the back along with another paper label that read "MIN-TONGE ART SALON 317 WEST PENDER STREET VANCOUVER 3, B.C.".



The next one is of a wahine that measured about 20"x24". It was signed (not sure of spelling-hard to read) on the lower left side by what looks like "Min Sjo??oth"?? but as I said was hard to read.



The boy was was done very well and the girl wasn't too bad just not as detailed as I like. Just don't have the room to keep them all unfortunately.

Mahalo, TabooDan

Thanks,
