Aloha TC Ohana!
I thought you all would appreciate seeing some of my wife's artwork. Although she's not Hawaiian nor does she do Hawaiian Kine art very often, but she is an accomplished award winning illustrator (and the most beautiful wahine in the world!) so here for your viewing pleasure are a few of her "tiki" kine paintings!

Heres a nice watercolor called "Worshipping Wahine"

This next one is of the Goddess Pele (this painting hangs in the Makawao steakhouse, Makawao Maui, Hawaii)

Another "worshipping wahine" watercolor!

This next one is called "the Buta" and looks more indonesian but still "tiki" enough for me!

Heres a beautiful watercolor called "Dream of the Mermaid". I added this one just for fun! Again, this ones not real "tiki" but its one of my favorites and ten times more impressive in person!


You can also check out her other works (painting, photography and even carvings!) at:
http://www.ebsqart.com/Artists/cmd_634_profile_portfolio__1_1_T.htm
Some of these works are also available as prints if anyone is interested, just PM for info!

Mahalo for looking and Im sure she'd love to hear your comments and aloha!

Damn. Some of the best painted artwork I've seen on here in a long while. Illustrator? Forget that tag. I like her work very, very much. Absolutely the best (and only, how refreshing!) watercolors I've seen posted here. She can hold her own anywhere.

What with your carving and her painting, I just don't know. Tremendous.

I dig the fantasy style of your wife's paintings. BTW, you forgot "Polynesian Princess", which definitely deserves to join these paintings here on TC. "Picking Daisies" is really cool too, but in a freaky way. I wish my wife was an artist! Although, nothing would get done around here...

All nice work, but I really like the mermaid. And don't worry, mermaid = tiki any day.

She doesnt actually know Ive posted these pictures! So when I get home Im gonna show her the thread and all your nice comments and aloha! She'll be stoked and I cant wait to show her! Im really amazed at her talent and very proud of her too! You know us artists can be tempermental and hard to deal with sometimes, but Im lucky to have found a wife who shares my loves & interests! (plus, she's a smokin hot wahine! smart & beautiful, a wonderful and sometimes deadly combo!)....

Mahalo again everyone, from BOTH of us!

Lord, Man, you two are an artistic powerhouse..Her work is top knotch. I used to have a book as a kid called "Faeries" , with beautiful watercolor work that I still love to this day. It was similar to the famous Tom Clark "Gnomes" book. Was she a self-taught artist?
