One high quality reproduction of my signed watercolor painting of a green ceramic tiki mug sweating in the summer heat from the weight of a delicious mai tai, a heap of crushed ice, and a juicy orange slice.

With a splash of summery color, Quinntiki art is perfect decor for any home bar, summer house, or tiki hut. Give your favorite tiki mug print to the hostess of a luau party, the proud owner of a new beach house, or your favorite bartender or beach-bum. They look especially fun in groups of three!

ABOUT THE PRINT
My fine art reproductions are printed with a Canon inkjet printer on acidfree 200 gsm Inkpress brand watercolor paper. The printed image is 5 x 7 inches with a white border on all sides.

I will send your print matted so it's easier to frame. When you check out, please specify whether you would like a black, powder blue, white, or dark green mat (the third image gives you a feel for how the different colors look with the print). If I do not hear from you, I will choose the color. Your matted print will fit perfectly into a standard 8 x 10-inch frame. Frame is not included.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
I am a Boston-area artist and graphic designer inspired by bright colors, lazy sunny beach days, and cocktail culture. I was pulled into the wonderful world of tiki by my tiki-savvy husband, who mixes exquisite Mai Tais and Navy Grogs for me to sip while I paint by the window. Many of my paintings are inspired by our growing collection of tiki mugs, who all have personalities and corresponding nicknames, like Earl or Norm.

ABOUT TIKI
The tiki craze began in the U.S. during the 1930s with the success of Trader Vic and Don The Beachcomber's Hollywood tiki bars. They were famous for mixing fresh fruit juices, island rums, and herbal syrups to their customers' delight, and their bars were the birthplaces of today's tiki bars with their fabulously kitschy Polynesian decor. America's love affair with tiki restaurants and bars grew after World War II GIs returned from the Pacific, bringing back exotic treasures and yearning for a tropical escape from postwar life. Despite a veil of secrecy around the original tiki drink recipes and years of poor imitations, recently authentic and fresh tiki drinks have enjoyed a revival. Then and now, the tiki world provides a colorful, laid-back getaway where it can always be summer vacation.
