Speaking of J. Craig Hille III . . . there are a couple of his velvets up on ebay. Man, he's good. I hadn't heard about him before but looking at the back label he definitely was going after the Leeteg Market. The font is even like the one used on Leeteg's own back label. Does anyone else have his paintings?

Okolehao...that sailor has been on Ebay for a long time. I really like his style and light & dark contrast. Tikisgrl...value is always difficult. Any painting of a male subject will not fetch as much as a female (especially topless or nude and more with flower or lei). Someone may correct me but I think the original Davis Gallery authorized copies were done in Japan. Look to see if it says Japan a little lower on the painting near the edge of the frame. I believe that later copies not marked Japan were done in the Philippines. Hina Rapa always seems to get the most money whether original or not.

Hello All,
I have an early holiday present for all of you Bill Erwin collectors.
Attached is a scan of a promo brochure that was stuffed away at my Grandfathers (Bills brother). This piece will give you a short background on Bill as well it shows off some of his other velvet works.
Id print a copy of it soon and stash it away.
Happy Holidays and Aloah!
Gary Erwin

Thanks for sharing that info on Bill, Gary!

Here's a Cecilia Rodriguez I found today. I love the subject matter of the little girl being so innocently entertained by the bubble.

Hello fellow Tiki Central members--

This is my very first post on this forum, even though I've been a lurker for a few years now. I finally have something hopefully interesting to share--my latest find and my very first velvet painting (a lot of firsts in this post).



Here is a lovely island girl by artist Ben Alano and although I didn't pick it up for super cheap, I am thrilled with it and honored to have it on my wall.

Thanks for looking!

Rarerly do you find vintage velvets with tikis actually in the scene or the main
subject matter ...this velvet depicts the Island of Refuge with seven tikis .
Deponce Hawaii is the artist








Aloha -Billy

I found my first velvet! And I really liked it right away, but unlike Billy's it had no tiki. So... I took advantage of the plain wide frame and attached a little shelf I made, placing a Coco Joe's into the piece. Not a bad look I think.

Not in my possession, yet, but it's safe in the hands of a family member. A Bill Erwin "Hina Rapa," that almost got thrown away twice. Apprently, it was from a bar around Honolulu area. The frame broke at some point, but it's still on the original wood backing.

Found in a local Goodwill store, a Joy Caros from her time in Hawaii in the 60s I do believe. There is no name or information on it that I can find. Picture is crappy as my camera is crappy. Any one know the name of this one?
