Aloha Tiki Tribe!
I went over to the gallery today and showed SPECTRUM 19 to Mark Hanna, the owner. I owe Mark for all his Aloha and Support he's given me, plus showcasing my art in his gallery - a gallery really not known for showing "tiki-Art" or "Outsider Art" or "Low-Brow Art" ... it's the Wyland Kona Oceanfront Gallery and it's known for showing the art of Wyland, (dolphins, & Whales & Sea Turtles, and like that, and Wyland's amazing bronze sculptures of the same creatures), plus, the gallery shows some other artists who paint landscapes and seascapes and, very well done, but very "safe", middle-of-the-road, paintings that would appeal to tourists. And offend no one.

Then, one day, Abbas set up a meeting with me and Abbas & Mark. I always recall, after I did my dog & pony show and showed my art, and said things about "Tiki.-Culture" ... Mark got a mischievous look on his face after a while, and he smiled, and said; "Sure, I can show that!"


Here's me & the Spectrum 19 book, and Mark, and a limited edition of "Hawaiian Eye".


Here's where you can still get hard cover versions of the art book:
