Velvet Skylines

Velvet Skylines


Black Velvet is the night. My obsession with the sparkle of city skylines came abut when I worked the 4 pm to midnight shift at Squibb drugs on the Brooklyn water front. In that building on the 4th floor was the cafeteria with a large balcony over looking the NYC skyline. Every night I would have my dinner and Awe at the sparkle of the skyline that was right in front of me, When I became an artist I tried over and over to capture that glow on canvas with no success., until I discover Black Velvet. This material is so black it makes my paint glow as if iy had light behind it. I was hooked on this wonderful fabric . Millions of black velvet paintings were sold in the 50's to the 70's but none with city skylines. My Velvet Skylines are very unique to me..
