Posted this under the Tiki Finds thread as well. Found this, I love the brooding colors, it's got a very smugglers/pirates feel to it, very large 4' x 2', great original frame too. $15.00

I haven't seen one of those in years! My dad had a set of them. the large one you have, and then there were two smaller paintings featuring slightly different versions of the ships that were 2' x 2'. My mom was storing them in the garage when it was broken into and cleaned out. Never thought I'd see one again, very cool!

These are two Hawaiiana Black Velvets from the mid to late '60s. Both were purchased in Honolulu. Both are for sale! Please contact me if interested!
1) Wet Shirt - Bill Erwin
2) Nude - Blake Tyrel

Sorry, both paintings have sold!

As is above, so is below...







After a week and a few days, I was finally able to arrange a time to meet up with the seller and purchase this Bill Erwin velvet painting. I was just shy of owning both of the paintings, a good friend and velvet collector managed to score the other one which is called "Lote" and was painted in 1969.

I am not sure if the Erwin is titled, the back of the painting has a paper covering on the frame.

A little history about both paintings.

The last owner was Bob Shaw. These paintings were purchased by his father, Wally Shaw at a gallery in Waikiki. The gallery was located in the International Market Place. Bob seems to remember the gallery being located on the left side of the entrance of the International Marketplace; does not remember the name though.

Bob Shaw lived in Hawaii in 1957 when he was three months old and again in the late 1960's. The box that the painting came in had an address on Kalakaua with the Shaw name on it. Bob told me his father met one of the artists at the gallery at the time he purchased the paintings, again he could not remember which artist it was. Bob is going to send me more information and I will update this post when he does.

Happy to own my second Bill Erwin velvet.

Oh yeah. Thanks to those who mentioned to Bob he was selling them too cheap.

Later,

PTD

I had the unique pleasure of being contacted by Gary Erwin, great-nephew of velvet artist Bill Erwin.

Gary shared the following information with me:

"Bill was my Grandfathers brother. Bill and his parents and family moved often from Oklahoma, Texas, California and Oregon. Bill was a sign painter in California and moved to Hawaii. Bill was alive in Hawaii in the 1960’s.

My father was given two paintings and my Grandfather had one.

Bill was a sign painter in the Sacramento and the San Francisco area prior to moving to Hawaii. I have a self portrait of Bill and a floral painting (not on velvet) as well my father has a young male Polynesian drinking from a coconut, and a Wahine portrait. The drinking painting is superb!

Bill was Edgar Leeteg’s protégé and did study with him. You can find examples where both painters used the same subject.

Bill also painted horses on velvet for rich horse owners. Bill was portrayed as the bohemian in the family".

I have asked if Gary Erwin could share photos of the paintings he owns with us. Gary says he will send me some pictures at some point and when he does, I will post them here.

Later,

PTD

This film was referenced in Black Velvet Masterpieces:

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=2&sqi=2&ved=0CDYQtwIwAQ&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nzonscreen.com%2Ftitle%2Fvelvet-dreams-1997&ei=LfiATqqWG6zYiAKRsfCEDQ&usg=AFQjCNHFtSFYKTamlwZNskmsKmXHsWca9A

Primarily about Charles McPhee, but a good history of Leeteg, some Tyree and other velvet artists. About 6 parts to the film.

Also referenced in this very thread, about 9 pages and 2 years ago

I haven't seen anything decent turn up in NZ for some time - the last McPhee that came up was a clown painting - but here's another record cover using the Kase Jackson wahine. Same label as the Pepe & the Rarotongans album (Salem records, based in Wellington), but this one is a 7" EP:



The artist's name should actually be Bill Wolfgramm.

Just found this beauty today. Is she South American, or is this early European influence on Pacific Islander dress? I have no clue, so any info would be greatly appreciated.

She isn't signed on the front.

The frame is undamaged, so I don't want to go busting through the paper backing to check the other side.

During last year's crawl I found a velvet nude.

Found another one yesterday, again before the first crawl stop on Sunday.






My second velvet painting by Yonaha dated 1971.
