Big-eyed Boy Black Velvet Painting Submitted by Rusty February 28th, 2011 I call this one: “Small Bowl-cut haired towhead boy with Giant Brown eyes holds on to log for dear life in a green sweater that is eating him alive on black velvet” Signed. 23 7/8″ tall 20″ wide
Haven’t seen this one before. His head looks like a little cocktail nut topped with a Beatle haircut.
Between the hair, the sweater, and that tree trunk or stripper pole or whatever it is he’s holding on to, it all blends into a rollercoaster of stripes.
How big is this and is there a name or date anywhere on the back?
Oops, just saw you posted the dimensions. What’s it signed?
I can’t really read it…may be “Pete”?
There is one very similar on the Black Velvet painting wiki page:
I own the one that page, just different sweater color. I have the girlfriend too: https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/2010/05/17/poodle-people-on-velvet/
I find the shadow across his face disturbing. Where is that coming from? Is his hair both a bowl and a gravity defying visor?
I love the organization of his eye brows.
I’m wondering if he is a dog in real life.
what I want to know is, who yanked out this kid’s top eyelashes!?
