you make it look too easy.

if you think of it, Hawaii was all made from lava and the pineapples did come out from the ground.

You do make it look too easy! Four of my Menehunes walked out yesterday! They were grumbling something about how there's this better painter on the Big Island that they were going to work for! Great! Now I gotta paint the WHOLE picture! With their assistance you'll probably be able to paint a couple of these masterworks a week!
You are the envy of us all!

It's coming out excellent Tiki Shark! Another beautiful piece.

If I had any comment to make, it would be to possibly add some shoots of flames off the lava pool here and there.. maybe a super translucent, firey mist around the pool, too. (Thinking that would give it some more depth and add mystery to it..)

Can't wait to see how you finish up!!

There, that's better lighting. Though that background came out so much brighter than in the piece. I guess paintings will always look different in person than in photos.
The fire shooting out of the lava pool sounds cool, and like a lot more work! Let me think it over. I was very worried there about the lava. I'm just glad it looks like lava at all. Eh it DOES look like lava, right?
Just a few things I want to do to it...Then on to the Sunken Tiki!
Ken, I await your Menehunes, tell 'em to call from the bus station in Hilo.
Hewey, moving is a lot of work. Sheesh, I feel every injury I ever got when I was younger, my whole body aches each morning! But, good news is I'm almost done... and I'm in Hawaii.
Aloha from the Big Island!

I'm stoked you give us so many pictures of your working process on these, and allow the peanut gallery to offer criticism. There aren't many guys working at your level that would do that.

I'm really looking forward to the sunken tiki - have you seen the underwater moai before?

The painting looks great. I do think the lava looks like lava. The overall feel with the blue vs. red works nice as well.
Cheers.

Thanks for the kind thoughts everyone. Paipo, WOW! How col is that sunken Moai!!!! Thanks for those shots, I've never seen it before! I spent most of today driving to the other side of the Big Island to deliver Mystic Tiki #5 "The Skull" to it's new owner. It's amazing how many different kinds of landscape the Big Island holds. Beautiful! So, I didn't get much painting time in. None actually. Maybe tonight, I'll put the last touches on #8.
Speaking of #8, the patron who had commissioned it has had a slight financial holiday emergency, and told me that the timing isn't right for purchasing their piece right now. So, that means Mystic Tiki #8 :The Pineapple of Pele!" is up for sale! I'm going to post it in the Tiki Marketplace of Tiki Central for anyone who is interested.

Aloha from the Big Island,

TSA, the latest painting is stunning. Congrats on your move.

Paipo, the sunken Moai is too cool, a real sunken tiki! Was it deposited there while being transported by raft around the island by the builders or is it legit? Coolest Moai pic ever!

Here is the finished piece.

All I ended up doing last night was cleaning up the blue and purple flora in the foreground.

Here's a detail.
Thanks for watching.
More unpacking today, gotta make some room in the garage, cause the car showed up finally.
Aloha from the Big Island!

Here's picture of the "Wet side" of the Island. It's totally a jungle over there! The patron who bought Mystic Tiki #5 has to cut back his yard with a chainsaw!
Aloha!
