Mucho Mahalo for the comments on the scribbles.

Thanks Mike! They sure are easier to do than velvets!

Hey Danno! Thanks for digging the vahines!

I agree leleliz. That's the one I'm looking forward to doing a velvet the most
out of this batch. Will definitely be the biggest one to date.

This one just started. size is 18"x 24"

As a big fan of velvets all I can say is.....I wish I had more wallspace. Very nice work. Look forward to meeting you and seeing them in person at Oasis.

Mahalo Bongofury! I've seen some pictures
of your amazing tiki bar/home. Wow! Look forward
to meeting you at Oasis too. Maybe I can help you
find some more wall space!

Next progress pic...

Thank you kindly Mr. tikiyaki!
...and can you guess what I'm listening to
while scratching velvet? Too easy!

Anyways, next progress shot...bit blurry.
Camara's acting up.

Mahalo for looking!

I've found that taking and posting a decent picture is the hardest part of the creative process.

Does she have a name yet? How about "Midget with a Ukulele"?

Mahalo Meheadhunter!
Especially a nude guitar playin hottie!
Killer job on the bowling pin!

Thanks Mike! Guitar harder to paint than pareu.
I agree, especially trying to shoot black velvet.
Pain in the Arse!!!
Awesome title! I almost fell off my seat on that suggestion!
Too much!

I call it 'Vahine with guitar' unless I come up with something better.

Detail of guitar and such...

I LOVE HER SOFT SWEET EXPRESSION!
almost like she's strolling dreamlike and just strumming her guitar
hoping a handsome kane would walk up and meet her!

You've entrenched yourself in this velvet
and come out a winner!
great work!
