Nice Job on the lamps! I am playing with the idea of making some for my show tent. Would love to have some by the time Hukilau rolls around.

The painting looks interesting, great start!...some Van Gogh-like swirls in the background would be nice!

Thanks ZeroStreet

Didn't end up going with the swirls but like how its turning out. I knew Van Gogh was a master painter but I finding out just how good. Making those marks in wet paint is somethings a no go. Not sure how he did it unless he let parts dry but not likely.

Here is a close up on His work

A oil painting for my Dad. Its a 12*16 size roughly.

About the third painting I've done and the first oil painting so I had no clue what to expect. When I would place a new dab of painting (different color) on top of the wet paint before it, it would sometimes pull the old color off and not apply the new color. I would really like to take some painting classes now. I understand Van Gogh much more now and even though I'm happy with the level of painting I got, I also know how far off I am from a painter like Vincent. I think this painting isn't much like his style but he sure did help me to produce this style. His is more like the face has different colored hairs of paint around the face and so many colors that shouldn't be there but are present to make the total picture work.

I'm Back!

Well I haven't been truly gone. I see a lot of my favorite Artist on Facebook. But my Likes spin in Cycles with new stuff snowballed in here and there. Tiki has always been there just not always in the fore front lately. Now that its Summer and painting time, time to light up the tiki touches and pour some rum drink (which has been going on).

Super happy to be getting my teaKEY thread to amazing view numbers. feeling honored and I see that TC is growing leaps.



This (future) painting is something I've wanted for at least Five+ years and a favorite image since I received The Book of Tiki ten years ago. Sven has good taste I wanted to paint this square image and I primed up a giant cardboard from a bed headboard. Its not the perfect archival surface but starting with a killer image, the surface didn't matter greatly. I wanted a Big surface and a cheap surface and big isn't usually cheap.
Couple years ago, my wife talked me into buying the last two LARGE canvases from a Michael's Craft store Closeout. They are 4ft x 4ft (square) "artist version" I love the artist type canvas cause its the better quality with the thicker sides which don't need framing. (less chance to wrap as well) I wanted cheap and I got these $100 canvas for $10 bucks. Can't believe i even questioned getting these. Even if I screw up, I'm not out much. I just prefer the square shapes the least but in this case, its the perfect Shape.

Stay Tuned. (Hints: Book of Tiki, square image, and the biggest clue- three colors)

So I'VE been unmotivated to work on TIKI stuff but my dad hasn't. His art is so different from mine because it is probably void of many rules that govern what I do.

So we put a mug (wedding reception gift to him) on the shelf to show it not empty but he built this one for himself. He has a little tiki hut aka Florida trailer (nice one though) where they have been decorating it with "primitive" art. African stuff.





and he said a tiki tie-in is that the skull trapped in the bamboo is from the Philippines from his service (long long time ago)

Thanks for all the encouragement DanlovesTiki



Boom, my thread has Hit 100,000 views. Thats a Amazing!! I remember years and years back telling my local college art teacher I had 40,000 people stop by and look at my stuff. He couldn't believe how many people back then.

Still thinking about making a production tiki mug. Its been over a ten year life goal. Six some years years ago, thought up many designs. Over the years, I've been watching other people create mugs from ideas I've had back then. Like the first Sepik Drum mugs, Solomon Island mugs and the likes. I still have one I want to do after all this time. Currently fostering two babies and have zero time to create, let alone think about myself. Hopefully I can make my dreams a reality. I will.

So A couple of years ago, my Dad bought me a cool vintage Oahu map. And He did more than just that. I will post it soon. And got a couple other things from him, from years back. *And will replace some of the broke linked pictures. Stay Tuned,

It is very cold today in Michigan. May 15th and there were snow flurries in the air; had to cover the vegetable garden. My mother sent this picture over to me today of my Seamus inspired Moai Fountain wearing a living Davy Crockett hat to stay warm. Man, Seamus had some exciting posts (a long time ago).




Hey everybody, I became a father last week of a two year old boy!! I'll be looking for a kids fedora real soon.

I always wanted one of those hats. Now when I'm at Disney and try them on they are much too small. It looks wonderful on your tiki.

Isn't it a bummer that the photos rotate. I've had to remember to never turn my camera when photographing for my thread.

Good to have to back on "other crafts". Cheers, Wendy
