I like your sketches, Jason. I feel like I can see in them the quality of light that makes you such a good velvet artist.

Hey thanks MP! Love those new mugs of yours bro.

Well spotted there Trader Tom! Love that one. Even though I have not seen
a bunch of Tyrees velvets as compared to Leeteg, I think I like his work
almost as much. I kind of consider him the John Singer Sargent of velvet
and Leeteg the Rembrant. If that makes any sense. Been toying with the idea
of doing some copies of both masters for fun.

Cheers liz! I am enjoying the process!

Mahalo Robb! Thanks for saying that. Coming from you that means a lot.
Hope you are doing much better and I look forward to your new works!

Next progress pic...

Jason, I think that you're one of the few who can do justice to these old velvet masters like Tyree and Leeteg. Thanks for help putting the revival in Tiki Revival! We need more quality velvets out there.

Mucho Mahalo Tom! Really appreciate the vote of confidence from you.
And may I add a ditto back your way on your mixology skills.
Love the new concoctions you have been coming up with at the
RR. Need to get back there soon.

Been away for a few days.
Here is where I left off.
Will finish today me thinks.

Jason, I played with the firestaff for a while - but I didn't look nearly as studly as this guy! Love that fire.

I've spun fire at parties here on the Big Island...and I looked just like that. (I WISH!)
Beautiful and moody! Great piece! Can't wait to see it finished!

Thanks Mike! Hey, that was you in your old animated
TC signature right? MadSamoanMike!

Mahalo Brad! Cannot think of a better place than on the Big Island
to see some fire being spun!

Well I thought I would be finished with this a couple of days ago,
but I have been spinning my wheels with the fire. I have always
done cartoony fire in the past and might not really have the chops yet
to pull off what I want it to really look like. Do not want to over work
it, especially on velvet. Will put it down to dry for a day or so
and come back with fresh eyes. Must be at "the Hump" that Brad talks about.

Next progress pic...do not let the signature fool you, it is there to
fool me into thinking it is almost done or I will beat a dead horse.

Jason = awesome
Just beautiful. You can feel the heat.
I like the look of the fire between the last two progress picks. The glow in the last one is phenomenal but I like the softer flame 'detail' in the 2nd to last version a tad better (i.e. -- brightest at the source of the flame and dissipates/softens as it rises).
You are amazing.

WOW! The fire dancer painting is coming along great! Love the in-progress shots! Are you still fretting over the fire? It's lookin' good so far!

What is the medium of the reclining wahine? That piece looks incredible too!

Aloha!

Hey thanks there John! I agree with you. Sometimes
I think I need someone with a hammer standing behind me
warning me not to overwork it or....POW!!!
When are we gonna see some more Mr.PPP updates?
Needs me fix!

Mahalo Eric! The fretting is over . I think it looks
alright. Besides, since it is on velvet, I cannot paint over
it like with other mediums. I Finished it and will post
another picture after I get it back from my framer.
The reclining wahine sketch was done with pencil. Thanks!
Whens the next Tobunga art avalanche? Super Stuff bruddah!

Speaking of that here is the first progress pic.


Mahalo for looking!
