Thanks everyone. Yous guys are tha best.




The painting of Sugar Rush was started when I found out that I was going to have an interview in Tiki Magazine and I wanted a new State of the Art piece to surprise people with. It was finished in about 40 days. It's a simple looking painting, but that was as fast as I could do it. It didn't survive the editing process, unfortunately. I assume the tiki ashtray wasn't prominent enough for it to count as tiki art.



Here is the finished piece:






"Sugar Rush" - 36x24 - oils on black velvet.

Robb - Beautiful painting!

Mysterious? Yes! Romantic? Yes. Foreboding? YES! Her hidden right hand scares me the most!

The tiki - to me - is the "pit bull" that ties it all together - you know the whole urban ghetto mod-ism chic paired with the exotic moody idol...and they're looking at ME! Holy-crap its HOT in here!!

Thanks for posting - another RH velvet masterpiece IMHO.

Dig that 70s shag carpet man - power to the people RIGHT ON!

Beautifully done, great lighting - as always. Sorry it didn't make the cut - their loss!

Wow. It's spell binding and hard to stop staring at each area. I usually say each painting has one special place. This painting has them all over from the bottom of the glasses to the hair. Even the tops of the knees are remarkable. I love your art, Wendy

I am so happy that you guys like it!!

I've had it under wraps for months and wanted to share it with my peeps, but had to wait until the mag came out.

Thanks so much, all.

Thank you Grog and Zerostreet_ Sugar Rush was a hell of a challeng for such a simple image.



I'm about to start a 2nd copy of a painting of mine called, "First Moonrise," and discovered a challenge: BOTH OF THE MAIN PAINTS I USED ON THE ORIGINAL ARE ON MY "BANNED COLORS" LIST. They required too many layers to be built up to make them bright enough.

Now I've started a round of tests to come up with a good moonlight palette for the painting. Kathryn, who commissioned the piece, loves moonlight as much as I do, so I plan on really making that the priority.





In my studio, I'm set up to test a new moonlight palette.





Here is my first round of candidates. I'm going for luminosity but with a natural look.

Thank you so much Rob. I've a whole wall of glaze tests for my ceramics but it never occured to me to make tests for black velvet paintings. This is excellent. When I try this medium in the future I'll be sure to test and record how many layers etc. before I start. You made my day, Wendy

Man, that finished piece is just fantastic. You have such a talent for matching your subject to the medium. Your use of shadow and lighting in that piece is just so wonderful.
