Aloha displaced Islanders!

I haven't done anything creative in almost 25yrs, life can really drain a guy. I just started to paint with acrylics last year (Feb'07), and figured I should try focusing on my first love, all things Tiki. I've had the urge burning in me for a long time, I was just not in a position to listen to the Tiki Gods. I guess you can take the boy off the island but can't take the island out of the boy. Below are some of my tiki related artwork this year. There are tons of great artist here, hoping to reach your level one of these days.

Thanks guys, now if I could just paint a straight line (or at least a less wavy one). You should see the two brightly colored tikis under a color wheel. Wow, they "pop" for sure. The orange tiki also has some florescent paint highlights, looks nice under a black light. I'll have to try to get an image of that up.

Hey TikiMango, nice work. I like the purple background one best - but how do you pronounce Pupule?

No need, there is painters tape for that. You can buy tape at art an store that is real skinny like a pinstripe on a car.

I'm not entirely sure, but I say it as "poo-poo-lee".

teaKEY, thanks for the tip. I've tried the blue painter's masking tape, I always get paint wicking under it around the edges. It doesn't like to stick to my canvas.... at least the junk I buy.

Try 3M 233 tape. It is used for doing pin lines on surfboard. It's more resistant to bleeding and wicking.

Surf Tiki, thanks for that lead, I'll search it out.

Here is the orange tiki under a black light. The photo isn't the best, but I think it gets the point across.

OK, here's my latest one. If anyone knows the name of this tiki, please let me know. I found a photo of this wood tiki, but I'm not sure of any of the details. I've never seen one with such an intricate tongue before, let alone a real mustache.
I put a little red into the tongue, though the photo doesn't show this very well.

I tried something a bit different with this one. When I was applying the gesso to canvas, I decided to lay it on really thick, then use a sponge roller to spread it. The effect presented an interesting surface to paint on for sure.

I decided to post a few in-process shots, seemed like the civilized thing to do.


Starting my final PolyGirl for the Trio Set. She's got a dark tan.


I decided to lighten her up a bit, and detail out the flowers.


I'm diggin' the velvet paintings, but since I don't have any on-hand I decided to try a Faux-felti Tiki painting.

Awesome paintings man. Can't wait to see the little Hula dancer done. The flowers look incredible.

To paint a straight line with tape, Put the tape down where you need the line. Paint over the edge where the tape meets the canvas, board, etc. with matte medium and let dry. You have now effectively sealed the tape so no paint bleeding under it can occur. Next paint your line and remove tape, voila' perfect line.

One caveat, you may want to lightly separate the tape edge/line edge with a blade, being careful not to gouge painting, before removal, this ensures no paint will tear away with the tape. This is only an issue with elastic paints such as latex.

Once you can handle your brush lines will be second nature, but tape is great for some really rectilinear work.

Cheers!

PS the 2nd painting is rad-bad!

Man, I just have too many projects to do. I keep bouncing from one thing to another, and don't have time to finish anything. I was thinking about TO Voodoo Zombie Island, and that got me in the mood to knock out a couple zombie inspired inks.

I've been spending most of my time trying to carve a damn piece of Douglas Fur. What a nightmare for a first carving.
