I'm starting this topic to showcase my own work (heh heh) ... I encourage all other Tiki craftsmen to start their own Topic to be their own showcase. Put your name in the subject, then post your artwork to the topic. When you add artwork, add it as a reply to your existing Topic rather than creating a new Topic. (thanks to BK for this wonderful idea ... )

Here's my first Tiki painting:

Are you going to keep the individual artist topics open or locked? Or maybe ability to delete any in case of mistaken posts, etc...




My thinking is they'll just be normal posts, so that people can make comments (like yours!). Hopefully others will respect that and not try to post their own art in other's topics.

I really like that painting. The undefined edges/blurring is great. It creates the feeling I get when looking at good artwork after 5 Mai Tais without the Mai Tais. What materials did you use and what are the dimensions of the painting?

Hanford,
Very nice painting! I like the impressionistic, yet exotic feel. I too, am curious of the media used. Acrylic on canvas?

Very nice!

Is that genuine black velvet?

I particularly like how the impressionism gives it that post-WWII retro feel. Like something from an album cover or paperback cover.

Hanford,

I really like that painting. Have you posted it before? It is super cool. Have you any other artwork to post?

Who knew? Proof once again that "Hanford Lemoore" is actually a secret underground cabal of crafty elves, much like Keebler.

No one person could be so damn clever!

Nice work.

Thanks for the comments, everyone.

I thought Iíd try a little experiment in the new Creating Tiki forum.

My painting is actually a test image made by a program I wrote. It took it less than 5 minutes to generate the image from scratch, using several sources as input (including photos of a 3 foot tiki from my living room). So, Iím afraid the media is ďelectronicĒ and the dimensions are 600 x 800 pixels. I forced the routine to make certain decisions while painting in order to test out other aspects of the code Iím working on.

Iíve been experimenting with routines like this for almost ten years now. The routines are all designed to create images from scratch, with variations. The program generates images nonstop, and I have in the past let it churn for hours (or days) and generate hundreds of new works of art based on the rules Iíve written. This particular routine creates brush strokes.

In other words, Iím a nerd.

One more note on this Ö the real art to this is watching it be painted from a blank canvas (which of course I have no way to show off here). It can be mesmerizing to watch a brand new painting develop from scratch on-screen, and I write these programs with the painting process in mind as much as the final result. Although itís generated by a computer, I still consider it my art. Iíve built a piece of art that in turn builds new pieces of art.

Meta-Art! Now you have to write a program that rewrites the program that makes the art...
