Thanks so much for the kind words, Alien Tiki. I thought William Shatner needed some kind of painting to show appreciation for his singing "skill"?

Hey Matt, that TZ is another favorite of mine too - by the way, that's a great still....

Nice work Sam!
Those retro/old photo colors are right on!
And I can attest that your paintings in person have that certain ZING!
Thanks for getting this out to the masses!I really really like this one! This could sedgeway into a really cool series as there's more than enough postcards.brochures and ephemera to reference! Good job sir!

Thanks so much, littlelost tiki and Paipo. I forgot to say that it is based on the Aku Aku cover! It's really the first realistic tiki painting I've done.

Wow, I can't paint in Oil or Acrylic even close to that well. I thnk I need to go home and mix a Mai Tai and start dreaming up some new ideas to at least look like I'm putting stuff out as much as you, caus I don't think I'm going to meet the skill level any time soon. Insane the amount of talent you have. I'm going to go and burn the crap out of some wood as soon as I get home.

Good solid piece. Have you always used enamels? What's the real difference between them and acrylics? I've only used acrylics and am thinking of trying a switch. Any info would help. The levels of depth you're achieving with the colors are cool.

Thanks a bunch frostiki, 8 ft., hewey, Matt and GROG!

Frosttiki, enjoy that Mai Tai tonight! And don't start any large fires with all of the dry weather we've had!

Hewey, I told you I had a tiki or 2 up my sleeve...

Hey 8 ft. Yes, they'll be signed 12x16 image size on 13x19 heavyweight matte.

Matt, Enamel has no pasty texture quality to it - it paints much like painting with Rustoleum or varnish and thins with paint thinner. I know it well, and am comfortable with it having used it for pinstriping and hand-lettering for so long. It is also known for covering in one coat, but not as much as in the past. Back when it still contained lead (until just a few years ago), it covered much better.

Thanks again for the adjustment GROG! Where were you when I was laying this painting out????

Sam, I think you've reached a new plateau with the Shatner and Easter Island pieces. I mean they're all good, but there seems to be an extra life force working in these.
