Hi, I've been a pretty hardcore lurker here for some time. I'm constantly impressed with the quality and volume of work some of you guys crank out. So to start with here are two paintings I have done over the past year. I have more started but I spend way too much time at work and commuting to work. I also have some carvings but it looks like they should go in a separate post.

And for the Don Knotts fans.

I have another painting which may be done in a week or two.

Cool Pieces!
Love the colors and style of that first one!
And who doesn't love the Knottster?
Thanks for sharing your work and lurking less!

I agree! Less lurking and more sharing. I see the tikis on the frame in the second one. Are those yours? Great paintings!

Thanks for the positive feed back. I did not carve the tikis on the Don Knotts frame. They are cast in resin from a mould I took of a Coco Joe's keychain. I will post a couple of my carvings and progress shots in a separate thread later today.
I tried to enlarge the photo of that painting so you could see the detail better, however photobucket isn't cooperating.

The Don Knotts painting is incredible! I love it! I love art with a sense of humor! Nice! Really cool to look at. The lighting on the tiki is cool too...great ambience

Hey folks, here is a new painting that is 99.9% finished. I've decided to go back and tweak it a bit but I may not have a chance to get at it for a few days. So here it is for now. I will repost it when it has been coated with varnish and I've made a frame for it.
This one was totally inspired by reading Thor Heyerdahl's Aku Aku. The theme may not be that obvious it's more about a feeling I got. All that talk about secret books and secret caves full of stone sculptures. I may do another one on this theme in the near future.
Thanks for having a look.

Nice! You really got a great sense of distance over the water to the island. I love the lighinting on the floating tiki dude! Beautiful...

Hey, thanks for the response.
L.L.T- That's cool what you said about the mythic feel. I was going for a religious overtone with this one but taken in a goofy direction. Thank's for the compliment on the rendering of the water-that was a bit of a struggle.
Tiki Shark- Glad you like the lighting as you are no slouch in that department yourself. The island in the distance reminds me of a snorkelling trip we took in the fall in Maui, cruising around with Kahoolawe, Lanai and Molokai in the background.
Sneakytiki- Thanks for the kind words.

I started a new painting yesterday but I also started a new job today, so it may take awhile.

TABU,

The levitating Hei-tiki is my personal favorite, the other two are really excellent too. I'm glad you decided to start posting pix of these! Keep sharing here.
My tiki fan--not tiki fanatic GF said that she loved the levitating tiki but wouldn't mind seeing you do a painting of just those beautiful Japanese looking waves. So there's another opinion from an accomplished graphic designer/artist/architect named Nicole.
