So here are pictures of the painting and the corner with the signature. Pretty cool, no?

Very nice, black velvet nudes in such a dynamic action pose are not that common, most are portraits. It would be even very nice-ER if one could see it right side up and in focus. You have succeeded in figuring out how to post images here, surely that extra step could be achieved also, please?

The story of its acquisition is a real Tiki history classic, by the way, akin to Leeteg paying his bar tap with his paintings :

Too bad you had to cut your cord, it was probably the original one used when the painting was hanging on a restaurant wall.

I took the picture from my phone on a whim, and in dim light in the house. When my daughter gets back from college next week (Cinema major) I will ask for some help.

nice!

the58guy- the dates you supplied are perfectly in line with the history of minnie's. ownership changed in 1960 to the mah family. good ol' hop louie was probably close to moving down south, and probably was having a little too much fun in letting new acquired pieces go during his dice games (considering that was just painted in
'59) it is staggering to think of the treasure trove of tyree paintings that once hung in minnie's modesto over time. we would love to hear of any stories your dad may have shared about minnie's and the owners -- (or pictures perhaps?)

and i agree with bigbro, let's see this one in focus please!

Nice painting. Is there a thread anywhere for restoring/remounting velvet paintings? I searched but could not find one.

I am not aware of any. My painting is in as-new condition and has not been restored.

Sorry, never ment to imply yours was in less than perfect condition. I was asking because I was searching for a restoration thread and came across this one. I have an older velvet painting that is tearing along the nails and wanted to see about remounting it. Thanks.
