Black Velvet Moses
About 10 years ago, I walked into the Salvation Army Thrift Store on Mercury Blvd. in Hampton VA and saw this painting near the kitchenware.
An El Greco-esque black velvet incarnation of Isaac Hayes as Black Moses.
Indeed, a painting of a photo (this one).
So the above are photos of a painting of a photo--recording one of the better moments in thrift store iconography.
