Hi all!

I'm thrilled to have found Tiki Central! What a vibrant and fun community, I really look forward to sharing my work and participating with you all!

To start things off, here's my first ever tiki painting--and it's a trip-tiki! (I couldn't stop at just one.)

I finger paint 99.9% of my work and I usually use oils (non-toxic professional grade), but for this piece I wanted to try acrylics. So many people's work I admire (most notably SHAG) use acrylic, so I wanted to go for similar bright colors while painting tiki in my own style.

This is what turned out. Despite the order in the pic, I painted Ku first, the Moai second, and the Marquesa style tiki last.



Thanks for checking out my art!

Mahalo!

I.

WOW! Very colorful, and fun! I particularly like the looseness and the way I can almost feel a cool breeze through them!
(Cool breeze?- Am I nuts?) I just love 'em!

Keep on creatin'!

Thanks, Kelly and Rastiki!

(And no, Kelly, you're not nuts. Some color combos also make paintings look like they're "breathing"...man, I gotta lay off the mai tai... ).

Rastiki, yeah, that ratio is great. My paintings are actually 10" x 20" each, but it's so perfect for tikis! I'm thinking about doing more of a landscape scene, and may use a 20" x 30" canvas for that (another favorite size).

Thanks for checking out my work and the compliments!

Mahalo,

I.

Thanks, tiki beat!

I love it on TC! If I didn't have to paint, I'd probably be on here for days going through all the great posts.

Thanks for checking out my work!

Take care,

I.

Hey, hey, Ken!

Thanks for the compliments! Hm, Pokemon...haven't seen much of it, but that would be an interesting variation on tiki, wouldn't it?

Surf's great in Santa Cruz! Gorgeous weather we've been having--can see all the way across to Monterey--usually, it's a dark blue outline like low-lying clouds.

How's Huntington Beach? I've got family down that-a-ways.

Take care,

I.
