Aloha!
Robb ~ Thanks Robb, hey this summer has been as humid as all heck. I was walking down on the beach, and the waves were really pounding. The air was so full of sea spray it was like walking in a sauna! My sun glasses were getting fogged over!
Clarita - Thank you. It's an interpretation of the paradise I live in I suppose.
LLT ~ Hey, I dunno. I just paint what I see. (But, I'm glad you dig it! That's all dat counts!) Except... er... this is a commissioned piece, and I don't know if my art patron has seen the strange turn this painting has taken. Hmmm...

Still more to come...

Big Mahalo....
B~

With the tikis hands outstretched like that, it's like he is summoning this otherworldly glowing spirit mask out of some sort of vibrating lava filled interdimensional portal....or maybe I'm just crazy!!:D
Regardless...This is turning out awesome!!:)

Geez, I really dig this one, the trees & lighting seem to have a before the storm feel, an impending something. The new thing adds to the SOMETHING IS HAPPENING vibe. Awesome man.

Aloha tiki tribe!
Meheadhunter - Thanks so much, I'm glad you dig it. You aren't crazy, I dig your explanation. This one certainly has a mysterious story going on, and I like how each viewer can decide what that story is. I'd tell you mine, but I don't want to stop anyone from creating their own personal meaning of what this painting is about.
thick - Big mahalo. Is a storm coming? Is it passing? While I was painting this, something big did happen to me, so I suppose it is reflecting in the piece. I'm happy you are digging it. Thanks!

Here it is. I am thinking of putting in foreground elements - flowering exotic plants. and far back ground elements - a star field. But, mostly the rest is finished. I think. I can go in and keep painting the sandy beach till dooms day, but the next painting ideas is looming and needs to start in the next few weeks.

Speaking of which, I'm getting off the island for the next ten days. so, there will be no posting till the 10th of July or so. don't think I fell in the volcano or got eaten by a shark, I'm just off visiting friends and Vegas.

Have a wonderful 4th of July tiki Tribe!
Big Aloha from the Big Island,
B~

ALOHA tiki Tribe!
Swampfire ~ Thanks so much! That's exactly what it is! Pin striping! So happy you dig it!
Big toe ~ On the BI we tend more tword 'shrooms. However, thanks so much, it's been fun letting this thing sort of paint itself. A reflection of some personal impacts on my life path an all like dat. I am debating on putting more lights in the hale or not...
LTT~ Big Mahalo tiki art brother! I'm finally back at the canvas, and putting in the last parts: the exotic plants/flowers in the foreground. (The fine and up standing art-patron who commissioned this piece has been sooooo patient!)
And perhaps a star field in the far distance.

Almost there...

Big aloha from the Big Island!
B~

Aloha Tiki Tribe~

Still painting in the exotic plants and orchids in the foreground. Thinking about the star field, and some more lights on the Hale.
