Yes, but I took the stills with my video camera and the lighting was awful so they came out crappy. In person the painting looks great, and the differences between light and dark areas are more subtle than the photo. Also, the whole piece is darker than it appears in these photos. I'll try to take a decent picture of it next week.



and a detail:



My wife gave me this "family portrait" for Father's Day. It now hangs in my office, which is slowly being tiki'd out. I'll post pics of the whole office when I'm done.

So I decided to try out this Cafe Shops thing and support mindless consumerism. Unfortunately, with the free shop, you can only have one of each type of item - meaning only one white tshirt, one grey tshirt, etc... But I'm willing to try it out. I've only got like 3 or 4 tiki things on it right now, but if anyone wants to check it out, it is:

Rain,

With Cafe Press, you can have more than one "shop" controlled from your control panel. So create a shop for each peice of art you have. That's what I did.
