Black Velvet John Wayne Riding a Unicorn by Gil Corral 2013

Black Velvet John Wayne Riding a Unicorn by Gil Corral 2013

sakes alive.  it’s been busy!  summer has come and gone and the light is changing and it just goes and goes and …you know.

and the thing is, while there’s been a good bit of lovinganvil activity (especially around this bit – i’ll post more on that later) there’s also been a LOT of activity around gil’s black velvet paintings.  which is amazing.  and i am a huge fan.  between his classic ability and sharp wit, i’m in love with them all.  it’s lovely that they’re selling, because then we get to do things like buy food and heat the house, but i am a little sad to see them leave our walls as well.  only because it’s totally my ideal dream art.

Black Velvet Bob Ross Painting Black Velvet Elvis was purchased by a patron who just returned from Vegas where she was looking for a black velvet Elvis and couldn’t find one!  not only that, but she has a tattoo of Bob Ross on her calf.

Trinidad James Celebrated in Black Velvet is on his way to the man himself.  it’s amazing.  and such an honor.  Have you seen this video yet?  or this one?  you really should.  he and gil have a little dialog going.  we’ll see if we can get him to come play the barn.  just KIDDING.  maybe.

and then Black Velvet John Wayne Riding a Unicorn sold before the paint even had a chance to dry!  gil has another canvas that shape – i told him he has to sit his tushie back at his desk and work on Black Velvet John Wayne Riding a Unicorn II.  right now he’s working on a hand lettered/hand painted sign for a business in portland, maine, which needs to get done the-sooner-the-better.  so until all that’s wrapped up, many of his velvets (and i’m adding el chicharron images daily) are available as prints, and tshirts, and cellphone cases, and pillows over at society6.

i really want a high quailty/high stylie Black Velvet Elvis for myself.  guess i’ll have to put my order in…
