And... this morning's SUNRISE, but in Salisbury, Massachusetts
This pick taken just before 6 am - thermometer reads minus 3 degrees

and about 1/2 hour later - it's low tide and the retreating tide leaves solid ice and frozen foam right up to the waters edge! We have a wind chill that brings the air temp to 15-20 degrees below zero

Dramatic inspiration for a Tiki Shark sky?

Hey TC,
Jpmartdog - "15 to 20 degrees below". Yeah, it's been cold here too. Yesterday the tall one and I went to the beach and it was chilly, it got down to about 82!

BRRRR!
Frostiki - Thanks, I'm happy I'm getting to the color part too!
TipsyMcStagger - Thanks, I love the cards, but I'm swamped with this season... but I gotta make time to finish them.
OH, Bamboo Ben, a friend of yours here on the Big Island wanted to say hello...

Aloha,

That eel is almost as creepy looking as that dog.


Almost.

Hey Tiki Central,
Grog~ Oops, I forgot how some of TC is rather eel phobic!
Tonight I got some of the back ground clouds roughly colored. A weird thing about acrylic paint. When you mix a color, it's one shade. Then, after you apply it to the canvas it dries one shade darker! So, you have to actually mix your colors lighter than you want them so they come out right on the canvas. You're looking at the second coat of paint over the clouds - the first was way too dark. This may also be a bit dark.

Aloha from the volcano!

Tiki Shark Artist, your painting with color creeping in, wow! The wait has been kiling me but that underpainting you did is top shelf, looks like you've been doing them for years. I really think painting with the subtleties you do in acrylic has got to be harder than painting in oil, that could be my total suckiness with acrylics though. I've definitely been inspired by what you do to try some acrylic work again, trying to do one of those skull paintings right now with the water based stuff. I've been trying hard to keep my fingers out of my paintings lately for fear of cadmiums and nasty heavy metals. Is that a concern for acrylics? I love to finger blend. Looking forward to this piece progressing, it kind of takes the series in a new direction with the weird puppy and big cast of characters. I'd love to see the robby robot drink waiter tiki painting come to technicolor life sometime to. Nice sky!

GROG take the eel over the puppy any time. Big-eyed puppy dreams keep GROG awake all night, GROG wake up in cold sweat.

GROG stole the puppy!
What kind of a Caveman would steal a puppy!? Probably a Hungry One!
Looks like you'll have to get a new one from the pound!
The painting is really shaping up Brad! What a Master!

Aloha TC~
I'm posting early tonight, because all the rest of the U.S. has gone to daylights savings time, - so you all are now 3 to 6 hours ahead of me! We here in Hawaii are too sun burned and rum drunk to figure out all that clock stuff. "Ah, bra, gots ta just set it back in fall ya? Forgetit!"
Sneakytiki~ I feel a little better about the piece now that I'm applying the color. I don't know if the puppy will appear again, except in maybe a piece commissioned by Grog. I really do think the Robby the Waiter-tiki is next! (I already have started gathering scrap for the mysterious wahine.)
Grog~ Wha? Now I gotta paint that damn dog in all over again!
LLT - Yeah, maybe Grog's hungry. But remember folks - pupus, not puppys!

"Eat me."

We got samples of the Body Glove Tiki Towels in! They came out pretty cool, if I say so myself! Those jaggy edges you see in the design are not because I sent the factory a crappy low res photoshop file, but because of the ancient looms our factory uses. They can't weave curves very well. One more thing for me to work on fixing for next year I guess.

They're gonna come in 3 colors. Yellow, Blue and Coral. Big 5 Sporting Goods has already seen them and gave their OK. So, I'll let you know when they will be arriving in a Big 5 near you this summer! I'm really excited about this, cause it took me a long time to get my favorite design through the pipeline!

Here's today's work. I smoothed out all the colors on the big background cloud. I still will smooth it's edges into the sky. But, I think I'm getting the hang of shading a little better.
Thanks for watching,
Aloha from the Volcano!

Don't let the cutesy puppy-dog eyes fool you, it's pure evil!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And GROG not only talking about Kinny (LLT), but also about the dog in Brad's painting.

Mondays! Sheesh, all day busy, barely any canvas time. Just enough to start shading the cloud edges.

See?

Exciting, no?

Aloha from the volcanic island!

Grog, my new therapist would like to thank you for his new house. Because of what you did to the puppy I will no longer sleep again, I break down ad cry when my neighbors daschund barks at me, and I have lost the will to live. I'm going to hide in a safe place in the fetal position now.

"Poor, poor, Frostiki. Worst case of puppyartphobia I've ever seen.

Aloha from the seething volcano!
