Found at my local "Savers" this afternoon. Unsigned. This painting may be one reason many consider this genre tacky and gaudy. It is in poor condition and very dirty.The edges are warped and the painting may have been wet at some time. I'll post pic another after I l clean and frame this.
Cheers





Only took 4 years to clean and frame this. Made the frame and added the brass corners for a little more cheesieness.

My dad found these paintings--4 of them--in the early 70s. 28 x 40. The painting is actually stained onto the velvet--the only paint on the canvas is in the whites of the eyes. Could they be by this artist? I can't make out the signature.

I like the Elvis velvet. I have been hunting for 15 years or more and have never found a velvet, not even a bad one.



They are all here in the Midwest.
I see them all the time.

The duck one here was $8.00 bucks!
I just have no room so I never buy these velvets.

From afar, I thought it was a Phillipine velvet, but I could see it was signed, so I took a closer look. Turns out it was of a Hawaiian cowboy, by Hawaiian artist Carl Hermanson. So I bought it.

A quick search yielded the following info on him, Born in Kauai county in 1899, moved to Honolulu in 1929,lived in Ewa with a wife and 2 children in 1940, an finally mention of him as an artist heading to "Zoo Mart" in 1954.

Anyway, Panola-Cowboy by Carl Hermanson





Buzzy Out!

Nice one Buzzy!
I just picked up a Leeteg (I think it was a bargain, but it wasn't cheap either). I may post it soon but this thread seems to have gone off the rails of late - lots of not so Tiki velvets! Yours certainly hits the mark though.

The Leeteg is "Blonde Woman" - which is arguably one of his least Tiki subjects- but it is Leeteg- and it is a real one, not a cheesy copy. A bit sun damaged but in the right light she still pops right off the Velvet!
Now I just need to get me a Tyree or two- in case anybody wants to sell one at a not insane price!

Found this velvet Jesus in rough shape at a nearby Salvation Army store. He glows under blacklight.

OK, I may be more into vintage Hawaiian / Tahitian velvet paintings than most-. And I have probably gathered too many. But this thread has gone from Tiki to tacky and may be irredeemable. Could we start a new thread limited to just authentic vintage "connoisseur grade" velvets and get away from the Jesus/Elvis/horrible roadside junk? Is anybody with me on a new thread to focus just on the good stuff?

I've been collecting images of high grade velvets over on Pintrest but for whatever reason many of the images from the early years of this thread don't let me pin them. I could use a hint on that if anyone cares to have the nicer material in one place for reference.

Thanks All!

Do you collect the actual paintings or images?

I collect actual paintings, and I've been gathering images for reference sa well. If you look back a couple pages or search under my username I've posted about half of my paintings.

Ok, now these are proper velvet paintings. If anybody out there cares to see better close up images I might take some one day. That's the Leeteg on the left - the "Blonde Woman" is not Polynesian, but it turned up in a few Tiki bars in the 50s. This one is real, not a Davis copy (as far as I can tell the copies didn't come in the large format anyway).
The one on the right is a Tyree from 1976. Now my quest is complete.
