I'm new to this forum and was wondering if I might be able to get some help finding a couple of paintings. Last Christmas, my wife and I were in Lahaina and we went into a small arts store. it carried tiles, wood carvings, and paintings in a fairly old plantation style shop. The owner of the store showed me 2 paintings. Both were of very realistic looking Hawaiian shirts on hangers, one of which even had loose threads dangling. The shop owner told me that only the one particular artist does that type of painting.
I was hoping someone here might be able to tell me the name of the artist, or perhaps of the paintings.

Welcome aboard TikiConCarnival,
Is the painting you're looking for something like this by Juno Galang? He does photo-realistic paintings of island life.
