Bullet-Thank you! It's such a pweasure and a pwivwedge to collaborate with such a complex genius as Bamboo Ben!!! 3x3 is a great size...You're gonna flip when you see it!
Pompele at 4x4 feet is almost TOO Overpowering,but the baby bear says this 3x3 size is juuuuuust right!
Ivanchan- Mahalo! Glad I could inspire some of the Ohana! Glad you're digging the wealth of artistical talent here on TC! Great bunch of folks!
Back to bizznazz...
"Cannibal island is on hold for a day or two while I work on...."the Bamboo Ben Ohana Hut Shelf that Looks like a Hut!"or simply..."Untitled"...It's a part of a raffle Chongolio is holding where you can win one of a whole mess of prizes!!!!

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=24550&forum=12&35

I'll be donating my time to paint this piece,as well as one more...
maybe (i still got the Tiki bash to get ready for! whaddya think I am? Superboy?)
But ,seeing as I was working on this at home ,I decide to narrate the
true effort,care,and defiance of gravity that is required to paint a Bamboo Ben piece!
Besides wanting to please Her Majesty Ben,I also had the challenge of
1)tie-ing the piece back to the Ohana Hut
2)being able to pay homage to both Stuckie and Chongo in style & vibe
3)to make the work so it doesn't compete with the Ben masterwork
but merely blends in and compliments it (see below)

Shelf: "Good Afternoon Ohana Hut! My!you look handsome today!"
Ohana Hut:"thank you! you look presentable this afternoon!"
Shelf:"Why thank you!"

Most folks would run screaming at such a prospect (if that above joke didn't get 'em..)
...but does Kinny go and have a Pity party?
Hell Naw! The Mission is too Important! The Stakes are too High!
Calling up the deep reserve of latent marine corps Training,
I rallied the heart and mind and ACTUALLY got about HALF of it done last night!
Yippee!
First, I mixed gesso and gouache and got the
perfect tan/olive mix... a little rose/brown and BAM!
then i sketched on the design in water soluble pencil-dark teal....
(Stuckie's dude in the middle with motifs on each side)

remember that i mentioned a "defiance of gravity"? You see, Ben works and he works fast! He's been doing this so long that it's like smoking a cigarette to him...
This creates a piece with the perfect amount of stability and clumsiness,
a work that resembles South Seas huts and Oceanic Treasures without the
cultural pillaging...it's hard to explain...
They're just f**kn beautiful and perfect!
The man's got a flair for this BIGTIME...
guess that's why his parents named him "Bamboo"!
These next two pictures will demonstrate this...
I worked on a lazy susan,learning from DvA decantersthat it's nice to be able to turn a piece with ease and work on it.....
Well, the difficulty of a finished Ben piece is that there's a lotta things that are hard to reach with a paintbrush....
believe me!
Canvases and flat surfaces are a breeze!!!
Anyways, it was hard to reach these areas,until I grabbed my
handy emergency outdoor travel watercolor kit / box
and balanced the hut like so!
PRESTO!

Totally Perfectly balanced!
Weight! Counterweight!
Ben had created a structure that looked all rustic and worn and NOT only did he make it strong and stable and beautiful...BUT he balance it like a fine tuned guitar!
freaked me out to be honest....
I could even spin it on the lazy susan and it remained stable throughout the painting session...
(I didn't take any chances and didn't press down too hard with the brush!
(Don't want to agitate Fate...)

Here it is,propped up so you can see it!

And here's one side almost finished!

I think it kinda blends with the hut AND the Ohana Hut equally...
You can see all the roof thatching and how low it hangs!
It overhangs a good 4 inches!
I can't tell you how many times my brush hit those!
What a weird angle!
ARRRRGH! to quote the Master...

And then I banged out most of the the back...
Seeing as this would probably be the area smashed against someone's wall,I went off on a little flight of fancy and had some fun with a funny dancing shield!
haha!

Here's a closeup!
BOOGABOOGA!
haha!

Well, I hope you enjoyed this saga so far...
Please visit Chongolio's raffle thread and buy a ticket or five!
Mahalo!

Out-0-controlio! I can't believe how fast you are whuppin' that out. You make my head feel like it is on a lazy susan that is geared up to a hamster wheel with caffine soaked rodent pullin' crazed RPM's. That shelg is going to be an awesome score.

And speaking of the Big ol' Tiki Bash..Here's some more pieces

LLT...Cannibal Island...KTD...BRILLIANT!!!

All the rest of your painted goodies posted, well...hhhmmm, Peyote ceremonies differ from tribe to tribe. A member may hold a meeting in gratitude for the recovery of health, the safe return from a voyage, or the success of a Peyote pilgrimage; Men refrain from eating salt the day before and after a meeting, and they may not bathe for several days. Women are admitted to meetings to eat Peyote and to pray, but they do not usually participate in the singing and drumming. Peyote may be called for at any time during the ceremony, the amount consumed being left to personal discretion. Some peyotists eat up to thirty-six buttons a night, and some boast of having ingested upwards of fifty. An average amount is probably twelve?

I suggest continuing with the stellar works Ken and stay away from ANY tribal offerings of a peyote pilgimage. You're works ARE a documentary vision quest!!!

SHAKA!
