Here are 2 poor pics of the tikis in the painting. These are still pretty rough, and I may add more as I go!

By the way, for those of you who have purchased my book, I would REALLY appreciate a review on amazon.com! Pleasantly surprised to have had a number of sales this week! My book is now #309,942 in Amazon's sales rank! YES!!!!!!! Ha!

Beautiful Zero, love the green tones and the underwater ambiance. The humorous irony reminds me greatly of one of Marc Davis's gags for the "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride. But I want to hear the story behind this picture; how did that treasure chest get so far away from the ship in the background? Was the poor sailor holding onto the thing when she went down and couldn't escape for some reason or what? We wants the redhea....I mean we wants the story mate!

Thanks for the kind words Tigertail!

There's not too much of a story outside the play on words of the title. It definitely takes place off the shores of Tiki Tower Island, as most of my paintings do. The TT Mermaids are exploring the wreck and they (or their amulets) are the primary source of light in the painting. As to the wreck I envisioned the ship breaking up sort of Titanic style, which is why you have the pirate in the foreground, The wreck way in the back and some more ship debris in between. Whether or not he came down clinging onto his treasure I guess is up to the "viewer" to decide. I myself think his greed kinda makes that a certainty!

Took the day off for my daughter's first day of Kindergarten, so I was able to take a pic outside. This is more accurate than the others. My studio light always warms up the painting (not a bad thing most of the times!)

I like the brushwork visible in the closeups - acrylics don't seem to inspire most people to do attractive brush strokes.

-Thanks Robb! As I may have mentioned previously, I'm feeling the "tug" of a more impressionistic style in my paintings! That may account for those brush strokes.

-Thanks Doug! I'm working hard on creating that depth! It's a bit of a struggle too!

I'm working on prints of some of my recently sold paintings. Here's a peek at 2 now. I hope to have them up at my Tiki Tower store soon and I will list it the TC marketplace as well. Anyway interested now can message me for pricing info. These are pigment inks on cotton art paper prints!

So cool Robert, the draped seaweed on the chest looks so slimy and convincing. I had noticed the green background but didn't recognize it's significance as a light source from the amulets.

Wow, love the draped seaweed, adds a subtle creepy touch...kinda like the cobwebs of the ocean. Turned out very nice, now tell Disney to take out the Johnny Depp scenes in the Pirates ride and put this in instead. As I said before it has a very Marc Davis feel to it because of the visual gag. Did he wish to the Tiki god in the chest to be able to keep his treasure chest forever?

Thanks Tigertail! If only Disney would listen! And whether or not he wished it, I think he got this treasure forever!
