That fun old tiki bar (and restaurant) Minnie's in Modesto California had a bunch of Tyree's at one point. Black Velvet paintings cetainly can fall under the banner of Tiki (not the Mexican ones, usually). In fact there are a few current Tiki Artists who dabble in Black Velvet these days. Sometimes a tiki does not have to be present to be considered "tiki".

It's not velvet, but it sure is nice!




Oh come on now! Now you've just gone too far. Those little emblems on her frock are clearly the
flag of Shetland, and we all know Shetland is not tiki! While it is a nice depiction of a Shetland islander girl shedding her coverings, most likely after returning from a midsummer celebration of Shetland Flag Day, anybody can plainly see it has nothing to do with tiki.

I agree with Aquarj but since it's still a cool picture it can stay.

No need to respond Hale Tiki, you'll have to keep your 27 posts a day streak going in another thread.

27? Now that's just outlandish. Clearly 25 is a more realistic number! (I've been REALLY bored at work lately, despite the mound of work I have to do. What? It keeps me sane.)

And Aquarj, you caught me. Her tan is obviously from the amount of sun she receives on her Nordic skin, being so far north of England and all, where they get 6 months of sunlight and all.

Well, you caught me. I'm a dirty Scotsman.

The dirty in that sentence is redundant, since by their very nature, Scotsmen are all dirty.*







*joke.
