Hang two with this whimsical Hawaiian surf art from Tom Thordarson. "This green turtle on a long board in front of Diamond Head is just hangin’ cool. Check out the red pencil sea urchin that adds a little funk to the ol’ cranium! And what else would a turtle wear but a tiki necklace!
This painting is part of my "Surfing 'Aumakua Series". ‘Aumakua are Hawaiian spirit guardians that watch over an ‘Ohana (family). ‘Aumakua can take many forms.
In this series, I am celebrating the “free spirit” of Aloha as expressed through the ‘Aumakua taking the form of the wonderful creatures of the sea, including turtles, octopus and sharks. The free spirits of these sea creatures celebrate the harmony with the sea. Laughter and life’s simple pleasures are all part of Aloha. Look for the personalities of these sea creatures coming through in their own magical ways!"--Thor
