Thanks for sharing these, kaha. She does some beautiful work! I like her subject matter as well. I've never touched watercolors other than brush and ink. I really hand it to someone who can do watercolors like that!

Kaha,

Wow! Thanks for posting these Pretty ladies!!!! Her paintings are great. You need to sign her up so she can start a thread and keep us up to date with what she has going on. I would really dig seeing some progress shots of a painting. I don't think I've seen much of that 'round here.

Aloha again Everyone!
Well, my wife would like me to give all of you Big Mahaloz for all the kind words! I wish she would do more "tiki" kine art but she stays pretty busy doing her own kine art! Im sure she'll get the bug to do more Tiki/Hawaiiana stuff after seeing all your great comments and aloha! Ill see if I can get her to join TC maybe so she can post progress pics and such...So anyway, there was one "tiki" kine water color I forgot to add to the original post so here it is...

This one is called "Polynesian Princess"...


Hope you all enjoy this new one and when she does another tiki kine work, Ill post it for you all to spark!

Mahalo again from the Cabanilla Ohana!

Aloha again TC Ohana!
Heres something new my wife has been working on which could definitely be considered "tiki"! She has painstakingly and masterfully created small shrunken head pendants from polymer clay. These pendants are highly detailed and include real hair! This is the first one she's just completed but I do know the next one will have more of a brownish leathery looking skin with straight brown hair as opposed to the curly greyish/black hair and wonderfully morbid greenish skin featured in this piece...
This buggah measures around 1-1/2" in height and mounted to some nice cord Im sure...

So, take a peek at the amazing job she did!




Your comments and aloha will be well recieved and I will happily pass along the response to her!

Mahalo for looking!

i love that Buta watercolor! I'm a major fan of Asian artwork, as well as polynesian, and i found that piece to be my overall favorite.

Kaha, you better be Very careful, with your wife making images like that, you gotta be extra good and stay with her at all times. This could be the voodoo to take care of a scoundrel, maybe you maybe not. These are Really nice shrunken heads, My respect for your wahine went through the roof, They are difficult to do and she did such a perfect job. You are very lucky to have such an artist be your wife. Nice stuff.
