that detail on the volcano is subtle but really ties it all together. AMAZING as always Robb!

Robb,

You are STILL my hero!

Looks like both of our "life's disasters" are finally coming to an end and we can get back to the good stuff!

EXCELLENT piece Robb! I'm SUCH a sucker for hotrods and shrunken heads. This brings it all home!

Liz, Slacks, Lee, Sam - thanks guys. This is a big piece for me, a real break away from any routine I might have been about to get into.

The big question is: what next?

Hi Robb -

What next?!!

After the volcano image of the last piece you know your options are blown wide open

You know the thing about volcano images - they represent both repression and release. Then a reprieve.

I find myself incorporating that glorious tension in my work quite a lot too.

Thanks for sharing your work. I look forward -always look forward, to the inspiring repercussions your paintings deliver to me.

Robb, some of my favorite things in this painting.
Amazing work again. I want to paint velvets like you someday!
Serious skills my friend.

Thanks, all. Very, very kind. I'm glad so many of you have looked at this piece.




And now for something completely different...

A few months ago I posted pics of the color scheme for the DaddyKatz store that I'd done in Photopaint. Now the store is painted and ready for some before and after comparisons:






Here's the original store color.






This is the chosen color scheme.






And here is the real thing. It's surprisingly close.




I don't know what to call this kind of work, maybe "Exterior Design"?

The roof appears to "pop" more in real life..
thas' good!
Exterior Design?
Exterior Architectural Embellishment?
Retail Improvement project?
Groundskeeper?
Color Picker?
Czar of Exterior Beautification?



ANY of those would look GREAT on a resume!
Nice Choice!
Now the building doesn't blend in with the sky
and it actually looks classier!
and YOU,my friend...
look SASSIER!

only a true artist could make such aspot-on call for the KATZ!

Aloha Robb - Don Tiki's new CD came out on Monday, with your artwork on the CD, interior and back cover. Would you show us the originals? Were the paintings done especially for the album, or did they use existing art? I'd love to hear details of how the commission came about and your thoughts about how it turned out.

I think it looks great - congratulations!

LLT: MAN, YOU ARE CRAZY! "Groundskeeper"!! You should have a column of your own somewhere. I'd read it.

Koolau: Thanks for asking, I'll post the info on your "New Don Tiki Album" thread in Tiki Music, or click here
