At 1961surfs urging I photographed my recent Craigslist find. It is 25x31, in excellent condition (except for dust & lint and a little "looseness" of the velvet) and although the signature line is faint, I believe this to be an original Leeteg.

In person, this painting is incredible, the detail and brush strokes are exquisite. I am extremely happy and delighted. This is my first velvet painting.

Just wanted to share.

Best,

GREG

I didn't know that such detail could be achieved on velvet. That is an inspiring painting. Thank you for sharing it. Wendy
