Large "Gallery" detailed paintings like this require a lot of extra time and devotion, so I like to space it out between other smaller projets. The challenge here is giving it the max amount of details possible, without over-doing the content, and the result is a well balanced piece. That is my goal in 2017 with the larger paintings especially, verses the smaller "Studio" pieces that are a bit more experimental. I think it would look great in a thick dark wood decorative frame, and of course lit up at night. I will be creating a custom frame for sizes 36 x 24 paintings soon, the kind of frame that is easy to change out paintings easily, so wall art can change with the season, or mood. This is important for those who have limited space. You can find my facebook page here for Tiki Hula art, those who like, and share my work will have a chance to win prints, and reproductions.

This piece is one of a few I have from 2012, that was hiding for years un-finished, so here it is finished with coastal fog rolling over hills in the distance.

A very time consuming piece, over 36" large with super details in each fish. My reef series has been refreshing to produce like a vacation on the islands. I've also had my own salt water tanks since I was 13, I began myself, bought used tanks, learned about them, and cared for them for many years, and I still do. However I prefer to see them in the wild rather than keep them captive.
I've only done a few fish paintings in 2017, but do think a series is coming in Spring 2018.

Caught With Tiki
The Uprising of Tiki in Palm Springs has gotten out of hand in this painting. Awoke, feeling in a dream, she can't resist, being caught with Tiki.
This piece has gone through a lot of transitions in it's making, there is a very rare version with a different girl, taken place much earlier on. This final version was exactly what I had hoped for. Some pieces just develop over time, using my subconscious as a guide, and in this case, it's simply entertaining and fun.

The "all new" UNIVERSAL CBjork frame has been born. Ok.. so I have tried different methods of decorative frame building over the years, and some of the ideas were good, but they took almost as long as a painting to create! This is my simple design, that looks professional, and also fits my paintings perfectly. It is a universal frame, meaning if you have more than one of the same size paintings, you can switch them out easy, or else this will serve as a great permanent option. Very strong and sturdy, but extremely affordable. I also offer the option to customize them matching the painting. The possibilities are endless with this basic starter frame, including antique frame sides, any kind of metallic, and textured borders can be added, so this is really very exciting for me, to finally have the TIME to figure this standard frame out for future works, that not only myself can build, but also any helpers of mine. This frame is available for any size painting.

This is an interesting style restaurant, one of my #1 favorites, as if it was captured in the 50's and 60's.

For anyone new to this site, it will be updated with more of the "CHOSEN ONES", my personal choices that I want to include with my future. There are many more of course, but the chosen ones get to come with me as I transform into my future artist self. These are very highly detailed paintings, the best of the best, but I've had to overlook many others. The future is very detailed, and there will be less and less Un-chosen ones if that makes sense. All future paintings are extremely detailed, which also means my pricing scale reflects the time involved. So this site is very under construction, but first I pick the past chosen ones, then I start showing the current ones. Thanks for visiting.
A great addition to any tiki bar / lounge. These little guys are having a little too much fun, while the others watch uncomfortably.
