Love the atmosphere you create.

Thanks Jason - it's good to see you staying active with the velvets, most people just give it one or two tries.

Mp - can you make me an honorary Cancer? So many special moments in my life have taken place in the rays of our massive companion, moments that seem made of dream but were real and touched me to my core.

El Stingray - thank you so much for saying that, it means a lot to me. I couldn't help notice you're from the land that gave Tiki so much of it's concrete history. Is there still interest there?

Twilight Moonrise really grabbed me. I love the crescent moons (I actually stand outside in the night and gaze at them, it's very calming) so I appreciate that you paint them correctly and not sideways. The mood and composition on this one is really extrordinary. So I've decided now that my next piece of art needs to be a Robb Hamel. Saving my dollars . . . Thanks for the looks!

Reminds me of the old comic strip/pulp hero, "The Phantom".

Kiki - Thanks for feeling the piece grabbed you, that is definitely the goal. Doing Tiki art has been so rewarding since I found that I can express deep inner feelings with it - most of which are about our place in this dark universe and the power of nature to move us.

Tikigik - he is an odd little guy but I like him. Only Little Lost Tiki commented on that pastel sketch but I like it too. It looks way better in person than the pic.

Have you considered painting a luau [complete with firedancer(s), of course]?
Largely off-topic for here, I guess, but an Aztec calendar might be cool too.
Perhaps not so off-topic since some think that South Americans travelled ac-
ross the Pacific via canoe to inhabit Hawaii. Some of the Aztec, Mayan, etc.
temples, symbols, etc. would be cool too. Might be an interesting diversion
for you if you "burn out" on tikis, etc. a little or want a change for some
experimentation. I'm thinking that they might find a market. You never know.

Tikigik - Thanks for the ideas, I like them. The luau, seen from a distance, would be very doable (the distance thing would be my "personal expression" part of it).

I've had other genres I've been working on designs for but they're kind of a way down the priority list. Harold Golen asked me to do a Kaiju (Japanese giant monster) painting late last year and that was a blast! So I'm planning on doing more.

Aztec or Mayan stuff would be very cool.

Sorry about dragging my feet on the hornbill painting, but here he is:






"Papuan Wreathed Hornbill" - 16"x20" - black velvet over wooden stretcher frame.



This was meant to be my surprise piece at the Hukilau, but it and another didn't get displayed.

WOAH! I bet that hornbill is just AMAZING up close & personal... it absolutely GLOWS on my laptop monitor!

Eyecatching and breathtaking Robb! I can smell the jungle, hear exotic bird calls and feel the mist upon my face... WOW!
