I hope everyone's had their share of turkey or tofurkey, whatever floats their canoe. My tryptophan-induced visions lead me to try to paint something that coupled surf culture and the tiki lifestyle. So I present the Surfer's Tapa Cross. A tapa pattern covered with sharks and dolphins, surrounded by a bamboo border.

12x12, acrylic on canvas.

Thanks VampiressRN! Man, I haven't thought of gravel art since I was a kid, till you just mentioned it. My parents use to have a gravel art sail boat panel that hung in my mom's sewing room. As a kid I use to pick-off individual pieces of the gravel. Can't remember what I did with 'em though.

The texture you see is done with a sea sponge dipped in soupy paint, about 3-4 layers of different colors.

It is so nice to have a 4-day weekend! I decided to try something a little more cartoony than what I normally do. This would have probably turned out better as digital artwork, but I like da brush. The Leno Tiki Surfer.

16x20 acrylic on canvas

I have moved images of my 24" Ku to my new carving thread.

It looks like a tiki carving to me... and pretty good for a first attempt, I think it deserves its own thread...

Very NICE!

This definitely deserves to be with the carvings.
Say what you will, but looks like you are a carver to me.
Really dig the broad grain, too.
WAY better than any of my first carves - kind of sad there aren't any pics of those beasts!
Keep it up. Hope to see more.

Tyler

Wow! Mango,

The Wooden tiki and the Surfer's cross are OUTSTANDING!

I whittled a douglas fir walking stick once and it is NOT user friendly.

I tried carving a hardwood once and it was quite frustrating.

I can't wait to see what u do with some soft wood.

Uh, that sounded bad didn't it....

Anyway great work(s)!

Kirby, thanks for the comments and creative pushing, and the use of your torch. Did you get your money back?

Tikisbytyler, thanks for the encouragement and good luck at the Creeks Art & Music Festival tomorrow (6th).

Sneakytiki, thanks for the positives. Douglas fur is a pain, very chippy, breaky, and splintery. Unfortunately, I'll probably carve more of it since I seem to enjoy torturing myself.

I love your Leno surfer...the cartoony style gives it a retro feel.

Very cool Mango!
I like the colors and the concept
and the contrat of tight and rough brushstrokes
graphic and a little loose!
These guys would be great as an animated cartoon...
is there a sort of
"big fish eat little fish eat..."
message here!
great seeing you and your pals at the Tonga!
Keep painting and carving and creating!
Florida's lucky to get your talent..

I was doing a study for a painting, and got a little carried away with the pen. Based on a hybrid Auguste Rodin's The Thinker and a Darwin's Thinker. What would apes ponder if they came across a vintage bottle of Barbancourt rum and a tiki mug?
