Hey Brad,

Maybe its all the Maori tattooing I've been studying lately, but when you added those circular lines in the ocean there, the painting as a whole, seemed to take on this underlying Moko that was that was separate, yet part of the main imagery. For me, this moko seems to emulate (read) up from the spirit hole through the painting in this wonderful upside down "L" shape...

EYE CANDY!!!

Squid ~ Now where's the challenge in that? However, you are on the top of the list when I get so drunk I just start handing out my art willie-nilly.
babalu~ Mmm! That's very interesting! I don't really plan out the paintings as completely as I guess I should. Half way through they always change... and they often take unexpected turns as things seem to become important or unimportant as it develops. These lines, I'm not sure exactly what their meaning is, if there is one, but I like your reference. ( Perhaps, I'll hope these moko set this piece apart from the lower ranking tiki art I usually create.)

Still seeking the meaning and the proper look of the sand, the lines, and adding in the ghostly balls of light. Swamp gas? departed loved ones? Old Christmas lights? You decide. More coming...

Big Aloha~
B

"Tiki Cat"

Just got my Brad Parker prints in the mail and it was like seeing the artwork for the first time. There is a nice wood grain on the ukulele that I never noticed. Plus you feel a sense of the artist throughout with how all the colors are applied. Quality of paper/ color are top notch.

teaKEY ~ Oh big big mahalo for that. It was a long weird day, and I really needed to read something nice like that. That really warms up me old rum soaked artist guts to hear such beee-utful words about me Polynesian puss. I wish you could see the original canvas, it's like a whole 'nother step beyond the prints. But yes, the pints came out sooooo nice. I'm very very happy with my printer. And I'm very happy you dig your prints.

Ah... new thing is being added to da painting... what is it? Good question... more coming....

Aloha B~

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Meheadhunter~ That's the best complement I've heard in a long time! The mask/spirit/tiki floating out out the dimensional hole was a surprise to me as much as any one, really! I'm just glad it seems to be working.
VampiressRN ~ Thanks so much!
mp - big Thanks!
TD ~ Oh, u know me, I never get tired of hearing that! but, I do try to push each one farther. It still feels like each painting is a lesson in how to paint.

creating the beach... more to come....

Mahalo!
