BLUSHING! (Thanx LLT! U RAWK!)
I am still working on painting #40 "The Cat O Nine Cocktails (version 2"), but... as LLT has imparted pearl's of artistic wisdom to me, why not work on two paintings at once? Hmmmmm.... That way, if you get stuck on one, you can bop over to the other one and work on something fresh. The kind patron who commissioned "Cat O' Nine Cocktails 2" is in no hurry, so I thought I'd give this 2 at once thing a go. Never really worked on two before, so this is a experiment.
Started #41: "Tiger Shark Surfing" - see above for the ink study.
It's a bit daunting to slap paint on a big ol' blank canvas.... but it sort of helps knowing I have #40 going already. Guess LLT is right again! That wise Jedi Art master that he is!

(Mahalo LLT!)

Anyways, ALOHA Tiki Tribe!

LLT is all knowing! But the best part is he is willing to share experience/advice at the drop of a hat!

I kinda like working on a few things at once...unless you are really in a zone then I guess it's best not to stop and change directions!

I think this new painting promises to be exceptional, if the ink drawing is any indication!

danlovestikis, THANKS! I hope it comes out too!

"Tiger Shark Surfing"

"Cat O' Nine Cocktails 2"
I re-worked the car....again! But now it's looking better. Got that dynamic pop surreal perspective. And the start of the shark 'aumakua reflected in in it's surfaces.
More to come...

BIG ALOHA!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

Here's "Cat O' Nine Cocktails II" so far....
For anyone confused, yes, I have painted this almost exact scene once before. "Cat O' Nine Cocktails". this one is a commission for some one who really wanted the first painting, but it was already sold, so they forked over enough coconuts to have me paint it again. The car is headed in another direction, and there are a few other changes...

Here's a detail on the giant tiki. Half stone, half wood. OK, why half and half? Good question. Not exactly sure myself, but that the artistic tiki muse urged me to create it so... the duality of man, who knows... up to you I guess.

Anyways, it's coming along... hope to finish in the next few days.
Laters!

Double your Pleasure....
Double the FUN!

Right on Brad!
You got so much good mana
that you could probably juggle 3-4 pieces at once!
Looking good on the commission
but,as always,doing a repeat of a previous work
and the fact it's a commission
sometimes affects the psyche
and creates a listless doldrum....
It's normal,your artist brain is probably 2-3 paintings behind schedule
and eager to tackle those.....
Still....your dedication and perserverance and discipline is shining thru
This Cat-o-Nine Tails is gonna be just a BOMBs as the first....
but REALLY can't wait to see the Shark Surfer!
Miss you buddy!

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
little lost tiki~ I am chomping at the bit to do the "Tiger Shark Surfer".... but I'm having fun on this "repeat performance".
Plus you are right, I have a sketch book always close by to get down the ideas that come to you in the wee hours of the night.
About 5 or so REEAALLYY good paintings I'm looking forward to doing. Some ideas have been around for years, but I didn't think I was good enough to try them yet... now I'm getting a little more comfortable with the brush and canvas to give them a try.

Here we are so far...

Second time around the client asked for more "Skulls" so I'm finding places for a few more. I like the cat face better on my 2nd try...

And Late Last night I had help. This little art assistant kept me company!

ALOHA!

A local all girl rock band "borrowed" one of my images for a promotional flyer

the gallery owner who reps me here found it, went over and raised hell I guess.
(I thought it kinda funny, and bound to happen sooner or later)

ALOHA!
