Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Thanks Robb, it's nice to see it reproduced all swanky and such too. It's a nicely done mag, heavy stock paper with high gloss pages. It's a give-a-way that will be around Maui until the next issue in Dec.
Here's the latest work on the latest painting...

Some how the glowing lava crack in the rocky beach has metamorphosed into a mystical portal opening in a black sand beach. Which, strangely enough, is also something one might encounter on a midnight stroll here on the Big Island.

I've taken a deliberate course to lighten up this piece. I had a feeling that it was too dark. So, I spent the weekend's hours layering in brighter shades into the misty twilight. I know now, the tiki it self will be brighter and reflecting more of the light at it's feet.

More laters!

B~

Hey man, just popping in to say I really dig this new piece, not sure why, just really enjoying watching the progress. Seems more painterly (is that a word?) then your other recent work. Whatever, I dig it man!

Brad!
Dude! - this piece is turning out to be one of my favs.
i just cant get enough of that killer wave crushing in the back!
what draws me to this one the most is the color of the water though- intense
the reflection off the water, just below the shack is incredible aswell, brad
AwsomeWork

Aloha, tiki tribe~

Well, it's been a while since my last posting. I had a death in the family. My father-in-law passed away here at home after years of battling Alzheimer's. It was a powerful experiencing caring for someone as they left this world. I've never been through anything like it before. I hope it's given me a deeper sense of what's important in this life.

Anyways, now that the family who were visiting and helping have left, I've got the guest room back as an art studio.

I think I can feel a lot of what I went through appearing on the canvas. Art therapy, if you will. This piece didn't start out as "mystical" or should I say, as "spiritual" as I think it's going to end up.

I appreciate having the Tiki Tribe as a part of my life. I treasure the ability to celebrate in this wonderful Modern Tiki Culture we have. It gives me hope, and it's a tiki torch of light in this sometimes dark ocean we're sailing across. And, I just gotta' give a big big MAHALO and ALOHA to everyone.

B~
