Black Velvet Goldens

I was listening to this last night while sipping a little of the same, and found myself inspired to try a photoshop of the boys in that "slow southern style."


I like it...not "hang it in the living room" like it exactly, but I'm pleased that the end result met my intent. Click the image to view full size, if you're so inclined.

  2. Hey Khyra, times are tough these days, and Dad's had to down grade from the GlenLivet; but he says Vodka definitely has a place on the kitchen bar! It was before I was even born but Dad lived in Memphis when that song came out, and he was reminiscing (I hear the whisky will do that sometimes).

    We love the style - the music was cool too although we couldn't listen to the music and look at the pic at the same time!

  13. What a beautiful job you did! It is gorgeous. Our Momster is slowly learning photoshop, one day in the next hundred years, she might actually create something.

  25. Hello Sam!

    Sorry we not been about, my J and my Pa have been on holiday (at home!) and the weather has been sooooooo good, so they have been out and about.

    We love the portrait, and would definitely have it in our living room!

    lotsaluv, Marvin xxxxx oh and Jeannie xxxxx

    Sorry the Glenlivet has been downgraded, we live near all the distilleries up here, but it is no cheaper here either! ;0DDDD

  26. The hu-dad is more of an icy cold beer guy, but he loved the song - and the black velvet painting.
