I dig how you are breaking the forms down and using tiki more abstractly! Nice work!

Thanks, Kevin!

It's definitely an exploration for me (although I have this scenario with bamboo and a tiki in my head that might come out sooner rather than later).

Take care,

I.

Fugu!, acrylic on canvas, 24" x 24"

I've been jonesing for one of these lamps and I've been bidding on one from one of our fair colleagues on TC!

I thought I'd paint a tribute to it (or my obsession).

Enjoy and of course, I'd love to hear what you guys think!

Peace,

I.

Awwww, I love the fugu! I really love all the bright colors you use, they make me so happy. Well, the Magritte Tang isn't quite happy, but I like it too.
I'd love to have the pufferfish hanging in my office - hey, have you thought about joining the Summer Swap?

Fugu would be great, or you could make something new.

Hi Mieko!

Thanks for checking out my work! That fugu makes me giggle. I think pufferfish are just so darn cute! And yeah, that Magritte Tang--I resisted my bright colors on that one, going for the darker blues and greens of the ocean. I'm glad you like it, too--the pictures don't do it justice (actually, the colors are kind of electric and very striking in daylight).

Anyway, if you'd like the fugu painting, it's up for auction on eBay (I posted in Tiki Marketplace and you can also find it by going to my web site and clicking "shop")!

I'm off to check out the summer swap, thanks for recommending it to me.

Take care,

I.

Here's my latest! I was in a painting frenzy and went back to the happy bright colors that I like so much. The masks that inspired me are so quirky and beautiful, with birds hanging off the chins, foreheads, or coming out of the mouths of these masks! The use of the shells are also fascinating--from borders to representations of the eye.

Thanks for looking!

Peace,

I.

Hi all!

I had been keeping my work in this thread related to my tiki art, but since I have several series and don't make art of one subject regularly, I'd like to generalize my thread so I could show my other art in the meantime!

Thanks for your kind attention, and here goes!

Peace,

I.

Thanks, Kev!

Look forward to your fire-breather and more when you've reloaded your creativity! I noticed my own rhythms, too--it's good to pay attention to them (and you've got a lot on your plate, too, what with flipping a house!)

Take care,

I.

Finger painted

I decided to change this painting--go with my usual way of depicting mermen by not showing their tail. Leave something for the imagination so that viewers can interact with a piece!

Take care,

I.

Koi!

Yo, here's my latest renewed painting (if left with my paintings, I tend to keep working on them, sometimes altering them dramatically).

Thanks to everyone for checking out my work!

Peace,

I.

Yes, I know it's been a while, but Tikitastic gave me a lot of crap at his party for posting like once a year that I've decided to get off my butt and post some more stuff. I haven't done much tiki art, but there's an element of the spirit in these works ahead. Enjoy!
