Island Music and Tiki

Island Music 22 x 30 inches acrylic on canvas 2011
This tiki painting is inspired by 1960s travel brochures. I love the 1960s illustrators and the modern look they aspired to create. It took me forever to finish this one, it is very graphic and flat, so I had to painstakingly paint several careful coats over each area.....not to mention keep the lines fairly straight.
Aloha Tiki People!.......and you know who you are....:)
