Hey thanks...I got the calendars. More on that later. Cause check out this sweet sun set into the Big Blue! I was drinking and painting and listening to an "old Vegas Vic's Tiki Lounge" Pod Cast, really feeling Lotus Land by Gene Rains, and I had to snap a shot. I was a minute late, enjoying it before I thought to grab the camera... but here it is... oh yeah... Lotus Land...

ALOHA!

What a beautiful shot! It really seems to bring something more out of your painting under that light.

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
Well, I'm looking to finish up on this little guy today. Brought him back to where I wanted. Last lighting, washes and he should be all done!

Here he is right now...
ALOHA!

Oh, if you are looking for Calendars for 2014, go to the Tiki Central market-place please!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
Well last night my buddy was in my studio, said "Wow, looks great! Your all done! Except... don't it need something in the front area? ...kinda blank lookin'."
Hmmm... you know, maybe He's right. So, I put in a nice green tropical palm leaf in to frame "Da' Tiki On Da' Beach".

ALOHA!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

On my evening walk tonight it is always fun to stroll past the Wyland Kona Oceanfront Gallery and check the front window... Well, thanks to the cool folks at the gallery, I still have a bunch of my art in the front window. (whew!)

I got a real nice hunk of wall space... I feel very lucky to have this rather well known main stream Tourist Gallery really support my "Pop Surreal" / "Tiki ART". It's not what they usually show... and has been a great experience for them and me, learning about each other's side to the art Scene.

What's even better, is they keep selling my art too! Big Mahalo to owner Mark Hanna, and all his staff.
You can find them here:
Wyland Kona Oceanfront Gallery

Ah... another beautiful sunset over Kona Bay...

Robb Hamel, thanks... but, oh I dunno, I've seen a lot of art in this gallery, and others, going for a lot more $. I know my art is starting to rise in price as folks are starting to know my art from the calendars and post cards and all that... but, one Wyland original is worth about as much as my whole wall!

But, hey I'm not griping! I'm thrilled folks are supporting me and my art, at what ever price! Wyland has been a great way to show my art to a lot of tourist and folks who would never have seen tiki art anywhere else. And, what's even better, now "tiki tribe" folks show up knowing that my art is there... the gallery can always tell when Tiki people come in... I guess we don't look like your average tourists usually... oh, you know, matching aloha shirts and skirts, women with a Betty Page look, guys with a little rock -a-billy going on, or quite a few tattoos... sometimes extremes: Mohawks and spiked leather all the way to nice SHAG print shirts, and vintage hats and skirts. But always a certain style, ya' know. It's been a learning experience for the gallery, ...and for me. Good times.

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!

So this little piece is finally done. Took a bit longer than I thought because my bestest buddy/partner was off on a business trip and I had to run the office & do all the day to day work, banking, shipping, etc... plus try to make art! (sheesh!)

My partner/agent was on a business trip on the other side of the world with the "Body Glove Team"!
They were opening water parks, and scuba diving, bringing Surf Culture to the Middle East, all that hard work kinda stuff! PLUS, They discovered the FIRST (EVER!) Body Glove sponsored Pro Surfer in the Middle East.

He's a really cool guy named "Mo Rahma". He's young, a great surfer, and is having quite an adventure breaking through many cultural barriers as he starts his pro surfing career in a place that has never seen that "surfing life style" before. (like he got a ticket for driving in his car with his shirt off! ERK!) A great guy, - you can find him on face book.

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
OK.... I signed it, put on the final washes, the last bits of 1880's art style, ...and it's done.

"Tiki on da' Beach"

12" x 12"
Acrylic on canvas.
a little bit of Georges Seurat's pointillism, mixed in with my pop-surrealism.
It's pre-SOLD to a collector on the west coast.
Thanks for watching the paint dry!
ALOHA!
