Truly beautiful collection, I real treasure.

Very Important Tip: These types of painting take well to a digital camera's sensor. I found one years ago at a garage sale of JFK, photographed it, and put it in the book I wrote, Digital Art Photography for Dummies.

Another Tip: These types of paintings, not only take well to the digi's sensor, but also make impressive prints when you use the Canon 2200 and print from Photoshop CS/CS2/Elements, using those programs' color decisions (and not the printer's color choices).

And if you are looking for another place to get custom work done, I'd suggest going to Thailand where the art is alive and well. I snapped this photo in a night market in Bangkok. Perhaps one of the Jersey City cityscape at night?

The painting of George W. Bush looks more like Robert Mitchum than it looks like George W. Bush. I wonder if that was done on purpose. Bring 'em on, indeed.

Its alot less creepy viewing them from a far, that hallway gives me the willies...

I'm not sure if this is an overly spammy thing to do, or not; but I cannot resist: I am Bill Robison of The Patriot Portrait Collectibles of Indignico Inc. and Ken, The Station Manager, is my biggest collector.

So, first off, if these velvets--or at least those which came from me--inspire questions that you MUST have answered, then feel free to write and ask them. (info@velvetpaintings.com)

For example: the Mitchum thing? Unintentional bonus. And the rat on Osama's shoulder? It was in the source image I gave to the artist (Ramirez). And it didn't seem photoshopped in, it seemed like it was part of the original shot, and if anything airbrushed out in all the mainstream media's use of the same image.

And secondly, if these velvets inspire a need to OWN one, then write and ask whether or not that velvet you want is in stock and how much? (sales@velvetpaintings.com).

And then finally, if you'd just like to view the velvets en masse, go here: http://www.velvetpaintings.com/galleries/galleries.shtml Ok: there you go. And, perhaps: Sorry. And also, Megan if all of that was just too spam for words, then feel free to delete it.

I think the velvet artwork of JonBenet is beautiful. The world should never forget her or her story. I believe, would she have still been amount us that she would have been another Marilyn Monroe. I also have created artwork of JonBenet but I used the medium of semiprecious gemstones and Devonian age marble. I think the velvet art is a magnificient way to remember people.
Sincerely,
Scott Rose
