Did you feel me breathing down your neck on that one? I was second in line-so let me know when you grow tired of it and we can work out a trade.

One from weeks ago, albeit not Tiki nor Polynesian-still like the quality though. Needs a little stretching though. Kind of reminds me of a girl that used to get me in all kinds of trouble. I call this one "Waiting To Be Kissed"-note the mistletoe!

Wow, thanks for sharing that ^

I guess that is about as close as you can get. Interesting how images get recycled!

This lady is Sue Bernard, Playboy's playmate December 1966. That issue had a pictorial of tahitian women which may have been the original draw for MacPhee and other artists but the american centerfold seems to have really captivated them.

Picked this up last saturday, Manapua Vendor by Erwin Honolulu...



Reminds me of Leetegs Adze Man. It's 27"x22" has been reframed but this was stuck to the back,



Aside from repeatedly misspelling Erwin as "Irwin" it also states that Leeteg worked for Erwin for a buck an hour in 1935 and 1939, which I doubt, then seems to contradict itself. So I'd guess the rest would be suspect as well, but I would like to know if it was Leetegs letters to Erwin that Mitchner used or was that another error and it was letters to, say, Barney Davis?

aloha, tikicoma

p.s. the color off, the shirt is more blue.

Hope I'm not stepping on anyones' toes, but a few months back this Perc Miller was
advertised here in Perth and I had contacted the woman who owned it, only for that
contact to be suddenly cut off, I expect a higher offer had been made and she'd taken it.

A long shot, but if the new owner is a visitor to Tiki Central, I would really like to hear from you.

Not a very good picture I'm afraid, taken by the previous owner on her cell phone.

Combining information and images from Psycho Tiki D, Bigbrotiki and Pitcairn - and adding the Sue Bernard Playboy centerfold from December, 1966:

Saw these at a thrift store recently:



They were asking about $70 each, don't know of that's a good price or not. Sorry for the rotation, I uploaded them from my phone.

Hi! I'm new to this forum and this place is incredible! I never knew there were so many other fans of velvet paintings. I fell in love with this piece I grabbed from an estate sale this last weekend. However, I have been unable to decipher the signature. I can read "Hawaii" and that led me to this forum. Any help in attributing this haunting painting is greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much,
Larry

Been kind of quiet on TC lately.

Long time, no post.

Found a velvet by an artist I am unfamiliar with. Title of the painting is "Falls of the Moon-Tahiti". Not dated, but older.










Anyone seen this signature before or know of the artist?

Mahalo!

Later,

PTD

Hi anybody have any idea what this would go for? It is by McMahon who was one of 5 students of Leeteg. It was bought in Hawaii in the 60's it is 44'tall and 31' wide, my grandparents had them all over the house. I really remember a giant one in their bedroom of a very pretty hawaiian lady.

I am looking to sell it could anybody help me price it, also has a light that attaches to the top of the frame. Thanks!!

I have one of those. It is about 40 x 29 in the same hand-cut wooden frame (total @ 47 x 36) It came from Minnie's in Modesto CA and shows '59 Tyree on the bottom right. My dad, a frequent visitor and friend of the owner won it in a dice game back in the 60's from the then-owner, I think his name was Hop Louie. Mine is in perfect condition with the original lamp (and cord) still in tact. Too bad you had to cut your cord, it was probably the original one used when the painting was hanging on a restaurant wall.

Oops. I am new to this site and see I replied to a post posted 2007-06-01 3:37 pm from Psycho Tiki D. So whomever read it probably had no idea about what I was addressing. It was the Polynesian semi-nude oil on velvet with the light wood colored frame. I'll get this figured out. Sorry.
