Awesome Heather.
The lighting emotes a wonderful story! I concoct that the trio are gliding through a cavern in the depths of a volcanic mountain. Moonlight filters through a 'skylight' opening, catching the drummer as they quietly glide through the water. The trio raise their faces to the cool light of the evening, hoping for a reviving breeze. Far below them in the depths of the water, molten lava precariously bubbles into the waters. The water is warmed by the flow, producing an eery light and stifling heat. The slow cadence of the drum echoes through the cavern, even the normally squawky parrot is calmed and hypnotized by the moment. What adventure lies for them as they travel deeper into the mountain?

Can't take my eyes off the screen! They're stunning here and I'll bet the pics don't do them justice. Amazing.

these r looking soooo sweet.

i saw the 'Mask' one at the M Modern joint and seeing it on the ol' CRT just doesn't do the dimensionality of the black velvet justice.

can't wait to see more down at T-O-8!!!!

alohas, t

Hi Guys! I've been immersed in painting for a while and missed all these great comments. Will reply soon... also I'm going to start posting a few of my Oasis velvets on this thread... just a few teasers. Maybe some sketches too!

Some other exciting news. Earlier this year I indicated I was working on a few projects that were hush hush at the time. One is ready to be unveiled and will be available at Tiki Oasis 8! I swiped this write-up off the Dionysus website... hope you don't mind, DJLee!

It's a Bob Drasnin “Voodoo!” pic disc, limited hand numbered edition of 525, with the tracks “Voodoo!” from his first album, and “Moorean Moonbeams” from “Voodoo II.” Features art by SHAG and Heather Watts! You can find this new release in our shopping cart. Don’t miss Bob Drasnin performing live at TIKI OASIS, August 15- 17 . Artist Heather Watts will be selling art, prints and jewelry and Lee from Dionysus will be at the Tiki News vending booth with lots of exotica and surf records and CDs for sale!

For any of you that won't be at Oasis, Bob Drasnin & I will also be doing a signing August 22 6 – 8 pm at La Luz de Jesus, Los Angeles. The disc is also available at the Dionysus Records Website and retails for $9.99:

Wow, Heather! You just go from strength to strength!

SPECTACULAR new stuff! I've always been a big admirer of your work, but these new velvets are so striking and magical!

You've truly mastered the medium & used it in your own unique way. And I don't say that lightly.

Edgar Leeteg would be proud!

Now if I only had enough bucks to afford an ORIGINAL! (Well, I can always DREAM!)

At least I'll get one of your t-shirts at Oasis!

Cheers & Mahalo!

Side A & Side B, I think they got those backwards.

Shag got spanked. I almost feel that the Shag side kinda ruins the great mystic beauty of the Art called "Side B" But it is the logo for the album so I guess it can stay.

Will be checking back to see that preview Heather. Even though the velvet is your newer works, I think its your true calling

Looks like Lee posted the pic disc here too:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=29408&forum=12

And info for the signing:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=29428&forum=17&2

Okay! I still haven't gotten a chance to reply to all these great comments... but it may have to wait till post-Oasis. I'm skipping out of here tomorrow morning and still have TONS to do! But right now it's time to post some velvets... just sizing my scans! Won't be a minute!

Here's just a sneak peek for you of four of the pieces I'll be bringing. Lots more to see at the event! And I'll try and post some after too for folks that can't make Oasis.

Coco Joe's Lava Canoe (Rhinestone Eyes)


Headhunter


Siamese Twins (Rhinestone Eyes)


The Sun God's Journey


There's also two posted here:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=26337&forum=17&start=270

Okay! That's all I have time for now.

I'm bringing just over 20 pieces with prices ranging from around $120 to $600+. Get to the booth on time Saturday morning to take your pick, but I'm hoping I at least brought enough for everyone who wants to get one! Wish me happy trails & I'll see you all down there in a couple days!!!

Heather

Those are sooooo nice. I love the Lava Canoe. I love the lighting there, it reminds me of Disney luau's as a kid. I wish I could see 'em in person!

Here's a new one I did (post-oasis) for the Planet Rooth Show Tiki Magazine sponsored. Wish I could have been there!

It's called "The Birdman's Canoe"




By the way: Thank you SO much to everyone who came out at Oasis and supported me! You've all helped to inspire this piece and many future ones. Mahalo!

Beautiful work, Heather! I got to your booth at Oasis late and was bummed for me(happy for you) that a couple of the velvets I would have bought had sold signs on them. I'm looking forward to seeing more work.
