I was forturnate to have Mr. Denny write an introduction to the book Leeteg of Tahiti, Paintings From the Villa Velour. He is a very interesting fellow who lives life to the fullest.
Gecko, that's a great velvet you did of Martin. Have you set up shop for custom orders?

First of all let me say aloha and welcome to TC Hulabowl. Second, I love your book! Great job!
The image of Martin Denny on this velvet is the same image thats at the front of the first few pages of your book. Then we just added to it.
I gave a copy of your book to my uncle Leo(the artist) and he loves it.
The artist is uncle Leo. He just stamps my Gecko'z South Sea Arts logo on his velvets for copywrite reasons and that he is now working with me and we collaberate on ideas together.

Leo is a family friend of over 30 years and that's why he has earned the respect of being called uncle Leo. We have a black velvet of my dad from 71 from uncle Leo. He's been painting on BV for decades.
Here's a Leeteg knock off he did of Hina Rapa.



We have set up shop and releasing the first limeted edition in about a week or two entitled "Kai". It will be a print from the original in a 18X24 size limited to only 100 pcs. My camera isn't the best but here is the original "Kai"




I'll do a post later on the release of "Kai" and this modern day Leeteg uncle Leo and some info on ordering original black velvets and other info on him.

anyways nice to see you here. You'll meet some knowledgable people here with all kinds of talents.

Aloha
