I've found out the hard way that a viral infection of my nerves really sucks and hurts a lot at the same time - it sure slows down the amount of work I can do.

Here's the finished piece. It's kind of a Mai Kai-like setting in the back yard of a Modern house. The exciting part about doing this piece is doing the landscape lit by colored lights. I used pics I took at the Mai Kai to help.

Looking at a preview of this post, I've realized the painting is just too big to be displayed well here. Darn. Thanks for looking.



"...A Cool Pad, Baby" 22x46"

Breathtaking Robb. Speaking of breathtaking, I visited your website a few weeks ago and my 2009 Cadillac El Dorado showed up Friday. It is just stunning, thank you so much. Runs like a scalded cat and handles like a dream

Mike, you got some good laughs with that one!
I'm glad you like your car.


A quick question: Would it be kosher to put on a non-Tiki painting I just finished??????

Robb, we all enjoy your work and I don't think a non-tiki post will get you banned. You could always claim that you've been sick and you had a fever when you posted If you are really concerned, you could post it in Bilge.

Wow, that's a stunning piece Robb - well done! I would love that on my wall.

Yes of course I would love to see your non tiki painting.

Keep up the great work.

Robb,

That is beyond cool.
It may well be the finest velvet painting ever created by human hands.
I kid you not.

The composition, color and lighting all work together in perfect harmony.

Did it hurt when Ol' Scratch took your soul in exchange for this ability?

"...A Cool Pad, Baby"
Sweeeeeet! I feel like I wanna walk past that tiki and trek on up to that ultra cool mid century pad.
Moody and swanky!
Well done!
Heck yeah, lets see the non tiki piece!

Again Robb..AWESOME!!

It's a given, now that your technique is outstanding..so I keep commenting on the "mood" I feel here that is so cool. I look at this and create a story in my mind..with my experiences in LA backyards during the 70's pool parties my parents would attend with me.

I feel like I am maybe 10 or twelve and wandered outside while all the parents are inside that house having a dinner party...fondue and martinis...and Don the Beachcomber Mai Tai's. You know when you are a kid at a party your parents attend and all the kids kinna get to be friends and look for stuff to do as the parents are getting tipsy. I feel like I might be outside with a few of the kids in a swanky LA backyard and we are looking at the cool tikis and the waterfall, lit by colored "Malibu" lights.

At this point, we would have dipped some plastic army men, GI -Joes or the kid who lives here's sisters barbies in the ponds or done something we were bound to get in trouble for. The sound of crickets everywhere. Maybe us kids discover that Mr. Smith has snuck outside the party with Mrs. Jones and are necking and giggling behind the date palm thinking they are unseen!!! lol... Anyways..I won't bastardize your masterpiece with my over active and warped imagination. Fantastic piece Robb!! Viva La Velvet!!
