Hey TC,
Sure has been busy here at Tiki Shark, Inc. Barely time to paint, but I got some brush time in today. Been so long, I sort of forgot what the heck I was doing! Oh yeah, that pesky under-painting...

Thanks for watching.
Aloha from the Big Island~

Nice progress so far Brad!
How big is this "puppy"? I really dig the tiki in this one and the palm trees make me wanna climb them! Looks like you'll be working with at least 2 light sources-the sunset and the campfire...Just remember that the closer light source is brighter and has the solid ground to reflect off.The sun is actually brighter, being reflected off water and all,but it is going down, soooooooo....just thought I'd mess with your genius brain!
Lookin Fantabulous Buddy!

The puppy is trying to steal my soul, I can feel it. Oh sure he looks cute and cudly now and a litte cnfused but I know that he is really just like the rabbit from Monty Python's Holy grail; A vicious creature.

Sorry, I either have not had enough sleep or have had too much caffeine, maybe it's both.

Thanks LLT - always wise words.. and I'm taking them to heart about the light sources. Tricky things. They can make or break the illusion.
Frostiki - Your right. It's Satan's puppy.
Loooong day- full of all kinds of running around. However, I did get a few hours of "brush in hand - butt in front of the canvas".

Aloha from the Big Island.

I love all of your paintings Mr. Shark, but this one steals my heart cuz your puppy looks
like my little house-rat. Gonna have to watch this one very closely. Your tiki is
wonderful as well, would you sue me if I tried to make it outta wood?

Here's today painting slopping:

Congatiki - Glad you like the little beastie, and OF COURSE you can carve a real tiki like the one in the painting. How COOL! I love your totem pole! And the chisel marks are a great texture.

Here's a closer shot so far.
Frostike - I'm not to the doggy yet.Can't wait to make super big wet eye balls, (that will haunt you in your dreams!)

Aloha from the Big (rainy) Island!

Hey Tiki Central,
Here's tonight's work on number 10... still slogging through the 'under painting'.

Mostly finding the surfaces on the Tiki. This painting is a different cause I'm not doing my "paint by numbers" thing, and I'm jumping around the composition more. That helps when you get tired of working on one thing. There's lots of the painting that I'm still scratching my head over. Figuring out how it's going to look, or what the light is doing in some areas.

Thanks for watching the paint dry!
Alooha~

Oh yeah,
I finally got a gallery up on my website. Now the web store is messed up. One of my business partners at Tiki shark, Inc, (the techy one) is looking into it, so should be updated next week. U might even be able to buy prints off it.

Thanks~

Hey TC,
Went to Maui for the weekend, for a art show of a friend. Haven't been there for a long time. Amazing beaches. However, the island has been developed a lot. It sort of reminded me of Orange County - lots of OC looking folks going to the beach, and creating alot of traffic. It was a bit of a relief to get back to the wide open spaces of the Big Island. Sunday night, after we got back, we walked down to "Don the Beachcomber" for sunset drinks and tusami shrimp. The Royal Kona hotel is almost finished putting in a new floor in the bar next to the resturrant. The bar's called "Don's Mai Tai Bar". As we walked through the lobby I could hear music and thought, "Cool they're playing some real Tiki Bar sounding stuff." However, the music was live: a vibraphone! Awesome! It's great that who ever's in charge over there is really doing up the place with a strong nod to tiki theme in mind!
So, here's tonight's work: Still doing the unending under-painting. I did get a little bit done on the dog.

Thanks for watching,
Aloha~

Hey Brad!
Less socializing and Island Hopping and more painting! Did they give you a time-frame on this piece? It's looking quite splendid! The leaves and plumeria in the foreground are slowly coming to life! And the puppy is actually turning out mightyfine! What kind of pallette are you thinking for this? It looks like a sunset/evening vibe....Are you gonna bust out some BradMagic colors? Hope so!!! So, when are ya coming back to the mainland? The TikiBratPack misses you! I actually saw GROG's eyes well up when he spoke of you!!!
oh....it's five waterfalls-end of story!
