Aloha All!!

I am not posting everything I am painting...but like to pop in here and there and share some fun stuff. Here are a few more recent pieces...with this latest one called " Perils and Pearls" as part of my diver/mermaid series. I will post these and give a little description as to what they all are. Hope all are well!! Looking forward to the summer events so I can un-glue my butt from my painting area and have some fun! These are not the good scans..just fast pics I took outside with a cam to give the idea. The actual scans and originals are far richer and more polished.

Special thanks to Kari, Hassan and Ernie(Grog) for getting me out to have fun at Bahooka the other night!! We all acted like 5 year olds and I thought for sure we would all either choke on our food big time or pee the booths raw with all the laughter!! What a night!!! Love you guys soo much!

Ok here are the goods... Enjoy!



"Perils and Pearls" Inspired by the great tales of the deep from the olden days when the ocean was a complete mystery below. Here, a beautiful mermaid (recognize this gal?)saves a deep sea diver who's greed for a massive pearl is punished by the clutches of a giant clam. With busted dive knife in hand, the diver looks peers towards a site he shall tell of for decades in his tales of deep sea adventures survived. Thanks so much Marina for posing for this....you are truly the real thing!!!




"Poi Meets Girl" A Hawaiian gecko gentleman offers a finger full of poi to a coy lil' gal who is flustered by his gesture! Pi is the Taro root paste eaten by Hawaiians as a traditional starch..it is a pale purple gray goop. She is sitting on a lava rock Poi pounding stone as he is in a Koa wood poi bowl.


"At's a Moray" A love affair at the tide pools between a green Moray eel and a pretty lil' Hawaiian gecko. Shell tea lights add the romance against the moon.


"Tentacle Difficulties" Legends said there were cases of deep sea divers reporting giant octopus the size of to or three stories high..in some cases they only were able to shout through their microphones before the life lines were severed like kite string....So we can only ponder the outcome here as this fella sneaks in for a love tap!

Wow Thor those look spectacular! Really love the Marina piece, looks just like her.
Also love the "Tentacle Difficulties" piece, just too cool.

Wish I could have made it to Bahooka, sounds like a good time was had.

New THOR paintings...featuring Marina

I like what you did there but then there is a problem. ALL your paintings now MUST contain Marina in them.

Amazing work, Tom! I first saw the Marina painting on FaceBook and had this thought: "Who knew there were so many shades of blue!" I've seen lots of paintings with tons of colors, but something about your underwater scenes draws me in to look deeper. The concept that so much detail can be painted with one color just blows me away. I realize all the artists here are probably thinking "well, duh", but as a casual observer, I'm always thrilled when a painting makes me think about art in a way I haven't before. And the likeness of Marina is perfect! Well done!
