Aloha Pagan, I just love your art. Creating tiki to me is a lot about creating the atmosphere (there, I stole the word too, ha ha). Your style nails it! Keep up the fantastic work.

Mrs Hoptiki

Suburban-Heathen,

I DIG the "Lapse" painting! Reminds me of those white fountains at some apartment bldg's in "The Book". I like how u handled the luminescent water too.

The fact that we can only see part of the fountain only makes this scene all the more intriguing.

TSA: Thanks again! I think that last one is one of my favorites!
LLT: I am currently residing on the big island of Moorpark here in Ventura County!
Mrs BPHoptiki: Thanks for digging the atmosphere! That's what I'm all about! (hopefully!)
ST: Wow! A reference to "the Book!" I am truly honored! That is quite a compliment! Thanks!
KC: I'm glad you like the point of view! I wanted it to feel like a rum soaked moment when you may take notice of something and space out on it for a moment!

This is a real loose goose right now. Very sketchy but I wanted to show my weird process a bit. I like to throw color down in big strokes and then choose the areas that need refining. This piece still has some refining to do!

Muted color palette and a different focus of interest! Ahhhhhhh.......exotica! Take me away! It's starting to work much better for me now.

Bravo!
Great new Colorway! And the point of interest not only shifts closer to the viewer,it also invites the viewer into the painting.I love the brushy style as well! Total old paperback rendering while deriving subject matter from album covers! Great work! Keep 'em coming!

LLT-Thanks for the killer references! Pulp AND album covers! Hot damn! Did Jackie Gleason ever do a tropical album? I'd love to do a cover for that! I totally agrre that the color shift and focus of attention brings the viewer in a lot better now. Still, it seemed a bit off and needed a little balance so...round 3! So I like volcanoes! Wha?

Once again, I began it on canvas and continued it digitally. I posted this before a while ago in it's canvas stage but it had a lot of unrealized parts to it!

REally nice!
Soooo you paint on canvas, then scan it in, and work on it in photoshop? Wow, what a cool effect! Then, you can create prints, even giclee form it! I LOVE those rum soaked moments! Your work is all bout that sense of mystery! Looking GREAT! I think the muted colors are really nice!

Someone appears to be using my account to post things. At least they are posting nice things though.

Apparently it was Tiki Shark Art that somehow got his post posed under my name. Hey, I couldn't think of a nicer guy to get my wires crossed with.
