Hate to be a pain, but should the bottom of the lei be a bit more shadow-ey?

Haha, believe me, I know how you feel! Great painting - again! What's next - how about finishing those tiki cards so I can buy some?

NICE! TSA! If that painting was all I did for 30 days straight I'd be thrilled it. It was worth the wait. These last couplah' paintings coming up on Halloween seem quite apropo.
Since this painting is pointing at some sort of narrative, I'm curious, is the skull a head hunter's trophy or a revered ancestor, or is that part of the mystery?

Hey TC,
Here's a better photo in better light.


Yeah, I could shad down the Lei, even tint it purple like the cool shadows. I also see about 20 other things I'd love to work on, but for now I think I should move on to the next one. Then look again at this one in a week with a fresh eye.
Thanks for watching the paint dry!

Sneakytiki,
Goood question. Is that the head hunters trophy, or a revered ancestor, or an supernatural alien artifact? I think everyone has the chance to see what ever story they want to in this kind of "illustrative" thing. That's one of the best things about it!

Bravo Brad!
Another beautiful painting!Those glyphs on the skull remind me of some of the frames and decorative elements of Joe Coleman (Don't check him out until after your show as his work is great,but disturbing....) Reaaally like the ptera-er... gecko in the foreground...and as usual,the colors and mood are amazing! It's purt-near perfect! Of course, being an artist, you will find those miniscule details missed by the commoners,and you will paint details and lighting tricks that only the most acute could detect! A month is too long...You gotta work faster! Coffee, vitamins, Jolt Cola and No-Doz can help you to add add 3-8 new pieces a show! Three weeks away! I expect, no, demand at least 2 more,maybe 3 more paintings for the show! You can do it! Whenever a show is looming, it's always good to have an inner Drill-Instructor.Strike when the iron is hot, go for broke, get when the gettin's good.You are on fire right now,so paint! paint! You can post 'em when they're done! Excellent work,very humbling to us other artists!
And remember,the more paintings you paint,the madder GROG will become! Indubitedly!

Yea! That one came out really really cool. Those colors are very moody and give the whole deal a wonderfuly mysterious vibe to it. Good stuff!

Thanks! Really, that last piece was a lesson in color, or something... but now I'm on to another lesson. I'm seriously working my color sense, so this one is rougher and faster, so I can get the whole color thing down faster.



I gotta get to a dinner w/some folks saying good bye to me, (I'm moving to Kona at the end of the month). Hope I'll be back to work on this one some more tonight.

Right on Brad! That red/purple/with teal pops looks splendid! And you got a bridge! I love bridges,the rickety ones are the best! Is that some Shaman's hut? Those two tiki totem/ torch holders at the beginning of the bridge are gonna be cool! Man! You should JUST paint! You could get two of these done a month-that's 24 killer paintings a year! And enough art to produce 2 calendars! This one is gonna be tight! Well worth the wait! Nice double shaka on the guy in the foreground ! Now finish this up....for the Gipper!
