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.
