Aloha Tiki Tribe! Please enjoy this "music video" of one of my favorite Martin Denny tunes: "Tiki" & "Quiet Village" with a little slide show of some Tiki-Art from Tiki-Shark. ALOHA! http://youtu.be/7HTCkZXaAvY

"Two Tikis" The original painting is a commissioned piece. Acrylic on canvas. 24" x 18". It holds several key elements that are meaningful to the art patrons who purchased it. It tells a tale of Weird Wild Waikiki with buildings as tall and dark as tiki idols themselves mixing in Gotham City with the best tourist destination in the world, while a VOG enshrouded sunset sets rambunctious waves alight with orange light, and flings swirling purple and red stars out into the approaching tropical twilight. A lurid Green Tiki Lounge beckons adventurous travelers, while local feline hunters start their night time stalking of real or imagined prey in sandy beaches sparkling with the mixed light from a twinkling evening sky.

Tikimanocean - thanks!

The Ghost Shark was Tiki Painting number four. I didn't start getting them professionally photographed for print creation until Painting Number 9!
It's hanging in a very nice low-Brow tiki art collection in So Cal… but there are no prints of it. Sorry. I was new to the whole fine art biz, I didn't know if It'd ever make any more paintings… or if I'd be able to even paint THAT one half ways nice looking… so, … oh well. I started documenting my work with painting number 9...

- The Sunken Tiki".

Then, I missed # 10 (the Tourist) and I missed...

#15 "Menehunes come out at night",

...all the others, after wards have been photographed.

However , it might give me a chance to have some fun and Frankenstein Sew- it back together, and add on more painting.... for my next show at La luz de Jesus Gallery in 2014 (July) . Whatdoyathink?
