Hewey - Hope this lives up to your great idea. AlohaStation, prints? There are some listed on my art show thread. LLT - ya' know Hewey will always be royalty to me, however, money is something you'll have to contact my agent about. (kidding)

My mom asked if the tiki had caught a glowing pineapple.

My buddy Abbas, who's house the show on Sunday is at, walked in my studio and said, "Oh cool, your done!"
Er... Not quite... (funny guy!)

Those progress shots are very cool - It's fun to see how everyone does their art. I didn't read the entire thread about the fishing tiki and I thought the future puffer was the moon over the water...so...when I saw the bamboo fishing pole without a line...I thought your tiki was well endowed! Too funny!!!

great painting, great colors, cool tiki and great idea.

4 watt light bulb. I hear the colored bulbs work best!

Thanks for the bumps guys! (That would be a very popular Tiki, by the way)
Just got back from lighting the art. Big thanks to my Brother in Law, Scott Young. I would have never figured out why the track light wasn't working with out him there!

The lighting is all great, even the spot light on this black piece of wall where Tiki number 7 is supposed to go...

OKEEE DOOKEEE
Not all of 'em can be big tiki-fantasy paintings. (especially when it's after midnight the night before the show!) Here's Mystic Tiki #7: the Puffer fish

He's almost a color study for this bigger fishing scene I got in mind. Hewey knows...
Here's the close up of the puffer,

just so every knows for sure that THAT is his FISHING POLE, and not to confuse it with anything else!
Thanks everyone for watching this show come together! I don't think I coulda' done it with out all the aloha coming from the Tiki Central art fans...

Wow! Your paintings totally rock, Sharkman! I can see why GROG wants to throw all his art supplies away (I hope he didn't really do it).

So, the big show happened. Thank you everyone who came to my art show. It was a great success -
every painting sold, and most of the prints. Wow!

I got to see a lot of my friends, some who I'd not seen in several
years, plus meet new ones, and meet some folks I'd only known through cyberspace ala TC.
The food was great, or so I heard, and the
Voo Doo punch delivered a delicious wallop. (I know cause my head is
hurting today.) Thanks to those who helped set up for the show. The band
was amazing, and it made me all warm and fuzzy to hear some of my
favorite songs from... well from a few years back at least. Steven
James, Zallen, thank you so much. Chef Ali, thank you so much - we'll
get that punch bowl back to you before we leave for Kona, we swear!

And my biggest thanks possible to those who purchased a piece of art. I
am humbled, and inspired.

True, there was no grudge match between a giant squid and a cave man in
the back yard that night (as was being reported on Tiki Central), but
there sure was a lot of Aloha going on inside.

Thanks again,
