I'm a big BIG fan of velvet paintings and I have to say that ever since I picked up my first velvet portrait of Kenny Rogers at a thrift store years ago, I've never EVER been the same.
Of course, during my usual wanderings on eBay, I'm always on the lookout for weird velvet paintings of anything from doe-eyed chihuahuas to pop culture icons. And sue enough, it wasn't long before I ran into The Patriot Portrait Collectibles of Indignico Inc.
They don't just sell the usual Elvis and Dogs Playing Poker paintings, but they also have portraits of political and pop culture icons like Ronald Reagan, Jesse Ventura, JonBenet Ramsey, and now the likes of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, and of course completely weird paintings of Weekly World News Bat Boy,
Monkey Playing Poker, and more.
See for yourself and let them know that Velvet Art is still something worth collecting!
