Aloha Tiki Tribe!

Here's a bit more on the sky. I have some stars creeping into the evening sky. I added some purple tones into the tikis.
Still looks like a big mess so far, but I promise it will look much better before we're done.
Mahalo for watching....

It always amazes me how bizarre your under paintings look, and then when you are done it always ends up incredible. I have not really tried this kind of under painting method yet, one of these days I will have to give it go since you obviously get wonderful results with it.

tigertail777- thanks, not sure if have really gotten the underpainting thing down right. I'm still learning.... just trying to make each painting a new lesson, and a little bit better.

I worked on the palm trees a bit.

Here's a close up.
ALOHA!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Remember when I created the Monsters on Vacation paintings? Well, it's that time of the year... when old art raises from the grave... and now the Monsters are postcards!

Looking for a little Hawaii in your Halloween? Check out my thread on the Marketplace.
ALOHA ...and Happy Hula-Ween!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

here's "Hula Baby" so far....
a little more work on the background.... still working out colors and things... Think I'm still fighting a little artist Block because I know this is going to an important show next year... so I'm battling through more the the usual self doubts I have as an artist.

malaho!

Looking good Brad. I know where you're coming from with the self-doubting, it's something I think many who do art suffer from on occasion. You should have no worries, I thoroughly enjoy your work, as do many others.

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE,
and thanks Brudda Bear 4 the wise words. The best part about TC is having this international artist collective to get advise and inspiration from.

Here's Hula Baby so far.... I worked out the sky some more and am adding in hibiscus shaped clouds. I think this will help add depth to the sky. I also toned down the reds on the sides of the painting by adding a light wash of green over them. The idea is to keep the brightest colors in the center of the painting.
more to come...

ALOHA!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

Monsters & Tikis!

The local gallery which shows my work gave me a LOT of primo front-o-the-gallery wall / window space! The best space in the gallery. It's all about grasping on to the big orange and black October season with both hands and showing the most monsters, witches, ninjas, Tikis, sharks, and more Tikis than they have ever before. All this will leap into the eye balls of the tourists who will be walking by and suddenly get a big o Halloween sized serving of pop-surrealistic-tiki art.

I posted more about it over in the Tiki Marketplace. Or you can call the gallery for more info: Wyland Kona Oceanfront Gallery. Phone: (808) 334-0037 Toll Free: (888) 435- 6612

ALOHA!

Beautiful to see them all together like that. What a knock out sight! Miss Boop is coming along swell too, I like the hibiscus clouds, at first I thought it was a bit too busy but if anyone can pull it off I know you can. Can't wait to see the final results.

ALOHA TIKI TRIBE!
Back on da' Island after my trip to LA for the 25th Anniversary of La Luz De Jesus Gallery.

It was an amazing show, lots of artists, some very big names in the low brow art scene, here's me with my piece (Hawaii-Ween) and the book of the show.

Me & Billy Shire - owner of La Luz de Jesus

Me & Crazy Al...
It was a real honor to be there! Chance of a life time... thanks to the fine folks at Wacko & La Luz de Jesus for asking me to be in the show!!

Looks like you had a heck of a lot of fun, and that's what it's all about.

tigertail777- YEah, it's great to get off the island once in awhile and see the big city, and lots of friends.

But it's good o be back in the studio painting too. Here's the new bit of work, the sand on the beach, and change of light on the ground from back ground to fore ground, and a little on the Hula Girl.... lots more to come.

I got some more done on the Hula Baby... getting a little in Mark Ryden world here... (guess if it feels creepy enough that's Ryden enough?)
Well, her cool tones help her pop out of the BG. Still got a cat to repaint.... and a secret cat to hide....

Mahalo!
