Beautiful Brad! I can feel the long hours put into this one.
I am drunk as i am writing this but its a crazy place where one goes when
long hours go by painstakingly putting down paint getting it just right.
Getting enough sleep or putting off your list or whatever you "need to do"
in life can be put off just a little bit further when a project grabs you
and wont let go until you get it right for yourself. Super job my friend!

Big Mahalao nui loa, Tiki tribe!

I feel your love. And I hold it ,and squeeze it, tight to my heart. You, my fellow tiki tribe members give my life purpose.
Again, BIG mahalo nui Loa!

This last painting was a strange journey. It took a L O N G TIME and it felt like it was sucking the life force from my soul. Most of it was created in a fever-ish state from this darned X-mas flu-bug that came and went , and came back, and left to go pick up a quart of rum at the Safe way and then..., and then came back and tried to kill me.

I would lay on the floor of my studio wracked with chronic lower back pain (because back pain is made not good by not getting out and walking - which you can't do much when you have the flu).

So, like I was saying I contemplated much of the painting from a drug haze of pain cold/flu medication, and Doctor's pain killers, and red bull, and mountain dew. This all tuned into a near lethal combo that caused my agent .manager.guardian angel , Abbas, to drag me to the Doctor/kahuna, where he rattled the bones, thumped the empty skulls, and talked to a wise old local tiger shark aumakua that hangs out in Kona bay. He sang me his prescription while strumming a ukulele -
"get better rest, eat better, and NO MORE RED BULL OR MOUNTAIN DEW. U DUMB HAOLE!" (!) I've lived on mostly Mountain dew and not much else my entire life.

From now on it's water or green tea, (with no sweetener).
I feel a bit more better, I finished one painting and started another. This one is small. 14" x 11" Sized to fit the La Luz de Jesus group show. It's another installment in my rogues gallery of "Villains On Vacation.
So far there...
is 1) Dracula Drinks a ...Mai Tai.
2) The Were Wolf Of Waikiki
3) Frankenstein goes Hawaiian
and ... The Kreature From Kona.
Problem was the gallery in Lahina Maui said kids came in, and pointed , jumping up and down, and screeching out the names of "Dracula" "Wolf man" Frankenstein" ... BUT... children do not know who the Kreature From Kona is, How sad.

Thus, The next villain to go on vacation will be the Modern day, well known to the current generation, NINJA portrayed in a popular video.computer game named Mortal Kombat. I know these villains because I worked on such video games in the 80's & 90's.
How's this for a title: "Subzero ...sucks 'em up!"
What do ya think?
More Laters...

Wicked piece. The sky full of creatures reminds me of some of the setting in the "Culture" stories of Iaian M Banks.

I super-dig the cat head.
