Hey TC!
Thanks LLT. I really liked the post of the full Pele piece on your thread! Wow, that's great! I got back, and did a bit more on the hut.

More Sunday. Thanks for watching the paint dry TC!

Nice painting, TikiShark. I saw this while searching the site for a local artist who might be interested in doing a large piece for my tiki lounge. It's a work in progress, but is almost done and I'm not finding the time to get the sign done myself. It's about 48" high by 76" wide. I met someone at a Harvest Festival show last year, but lost his card. Do you know of anyone who might be interested in doing this kind of project? It's a home bar and entertainment room. It can be done here or can be removed from the wall to be done offsite.

Hey Hey TC,
Squid, I'm moving, but I'm not moving out of your life! I'll be back for Tiki Oasis, and Tikis and Terrors, and I'll be staying on your couch... (kidding sort of!) And heck, I'll be here on TC every time I paint. I'll just be telling about how great the last sunset off Kona was.
Califorinalife - sorry, bad timing huh? I'm heading out of state, or I'd might do it. However, there's several local artist's - and always my good buddy and inspiration, Ken Ruzic... look at Little Lost Tiki's thread. He works BIG like dat. You know It all depends on what kind of Tiki art style turns you on.
And speaking of painting... here's more of Mystic Tiki number 6.



Boy, the colors came out all wonky on these shots! It's a pink mysticy sunset, with a blue elements, and a teal light in the hut and beneath the tiki. Tomorrow morning I'll drag the canvas out side and get a shot. Then, tomorrow afternoon I'm off to Kona fer a few days getting the new digs settled.
Thanks for all the nice support - I may be moving to the island, but I always be here. On TC!

Even the quickies look tops

Where's the light source for the tiki coming from?

Hey Hewey,
Hmm good question... You mean I have to have a logical light source? Damn! Well, the idea is that there is some sort of mystic-green-fire behind the rocks stacked at the base of the tiki.

Hey Tiki Shark,
Bummer for us that you're moving, but I suspect great for you! Your work is awesome and I look forward to seeing more in the future. Keep 'em coming! Thanks for getting back to me.

Here, in the morning sunlight this shot a more of the canvas's true colors. Except... still not quite. Oh well, not an exact science I guess.

Hey ken, thanks! I like the teal also. This one is very "California" - it's heavy on the black light lounge colors. I wanted to do one where you'd hear a re-verb twang surf guitar just by looking at it.
Yeah I got a special super-heavy-thick-natural-colored-card-stock like sketch book to draw cool "Big Island" inspired sketches in while I'm on my trip. Off to the Volcano!

Looking great as always TSA - the mouth detail looks kinda like an "x-ray cannibal" effect - like the little guy has just been eaten, and you can see him inside the big guy's mouth before he goes down his gullet. I'm digging the palette on this one too.

Hey Paipo, thanks! That x-ray idea is really cool. Glad you dig the new tiki so far. It's amazing how many different takes there can be on "tiki", and after seeing such great art by so many other tiki artist's it seems as endless as endless as the imagination.

Anyways, so here I am in Kona Hawaii, and I HAVE to share this awesome sight I just saw with you great folks on TC. It's a full moon, or close to it. Kona is at the sea shore on the west side of the island. Looking up the enormous sweeping expanse of the volcano to the east, I see the moon just rising over it's rim. It's dazzling in it's brightness as there are no enormous amounts of city lights to subdue it's brilliance, as in LA. The moon is causing the "Vog", (volcanic fog) that wreaths the higher areas of the volcano above the coast, to luminous with this ghostly blue/white color. It's glowing fog - like in that old horror movie "the Fog". As I look up the vog is sweeping out long tentacles across the sky. Very eerie and very beautiful! By the time I went inside and got my camera, the moon had risen further and the effect is gone. Just another mystic tropical night in Hawaii.
Laters~

You've got more talent than one man deserves, and now you're posting from Hawaii about beautiful sights you've seen!!!! The only way that you can make GROG hate you any more than GROG does now, is to say you are there with Brooke Burke.

Bastard.
