This original Paddleboarder with Dog painting depicts a skeleton in aloha shorts, and a lauhala hat, cruising a wave with his tiki paddle while his dog rides on the nose of the board. A perfect blend of Dia de los Muertos meets Hawaii, this duo continues to do what they love in the after life! The original painting measures 9″x12″ and is painted with acrylic and enamel on a mounted birch panel. The original art is available at Olani Gallery on Oahu in Ko Olina.
This original submarine art is what you get when you mix Captain Nemo with some Beatle’s lyrics, sealed in a tin can, and then sprinkle in a little Rapa Nui! “Captain Calamari” is a narrative of an octopus driving a van submarine looking for his long lost garden. Fish dart away as this rusty contraption explores the depths of the Pacific. One of Captain Calamri’s trusty, crabby shipmates operates the periscope to get a better view of things as they plunge deeper into the abyss. Although the original painting sold you can still pick up a paper or canvas print!
This tiki drum painting depicts two drums who are the classic big buddy little buddy duo. However sometimes the big guy can’t resist playing his amigos head especially when they are in the middle of the jungle. So next time you hear drums in the jungle don’t worry it’s not ravenous cannibals about to feast on foreign flesh. It’s just these two tiki drums making some beats.
This painting was made with several layers of acrylic paint and then outlined in a dark blue One Shot enamel. It is painted on a piece of birch panel and measures 8″x10″. It comes in an ornate Indonesian style wood frame bringing the total size to 13″x15″.
This unique piece of tiki pirate art depicts a potion making sea captain who is searching the jungle for buried treasure. This tiki style swashbuckler is embellished with pirate style features.

The painting measures 8″x10″ and comes in a rustic custom wood frame bringing the total size to 12.5″x16″. The frame has been distressed, staggered, and stained to resemble the planks of a ship. The frame is the vessel that carries Blue Beard Tiki on his adventures and wants to birth at your port!
“Ouroboros Tiki” is a painting of a tiki mug character, who symbolizes the ancient Egyptian ouroboros symbol in a humorous way. The ouroboros symbol usually depicts a serpent or dragon eating its own tail. It is a symbol of infinity that is represented by something constantly recreating itself. It also represents the infinite cycle of nature’s endless creation and destruction, life and death.
This piece was made during the 9th annual Mai Tai Festival at the Royal Kona Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii.

The painting measures 8″x10″ and the frame brings the total size to 14.5″x12″.
“Muerte en Hawaii” is original day of the dead art from Hawaii. Death is shown here on vacation in an aloha shirt playing an ukulele on a sunlit beach. I like to think that he is playing that song from Ziggy Marley, “Beach in Hawaii”, while the waves keep the rhythm in the background. It’s a perfect picture of the island lifestyle and shows how the only way to live life is in the moment.
Although the original painting has SOLD there are still many print options available.
