Robb, I love your work so much that I wrote you a swooning fan email. I hope you got it. I think you are the god of velvet.

Though I have been on this forum for over 10 years now, for some reason I never checked out this thread. This is incredible stuff! Wow!

Yes - I finished the architectural piece, "...A Cool Pad, Baby 4". This one was a long, long road (about 4 months), but I feel that it is a real evolution of the original piece I did in 2008.

I also finished the fourth and final copy of the "Tiki Vignette 3", which I did over about 3 weeks. This is one of my favorite pieces to do. It is really, really cool to look at in good light, thanks to the super-luminous paints by Windsor Newton.







This pic shows how I have to work in the middle of a ton a chalk dust and guess how it's gonna look after it is cleaned off.





More chalk dust, and a ton of cadmium red dark.






Here are the two finished pieces:







"...A Cool Pad, Baby 4" - 24"x36" - oil on velvet.





Closeup of left half.





Closeup of right half.





Closeup of sky area. The stars of slightly visible at this range.





"Tiki Vignette 3" - 4 of 4 (final copy) - 36"x18" - oil on velvet.




I guess I've gotten motivated here. It might be a while before I turn out another piece, but I have one I'm working on that oughta be pretty cool. Thanks everyone for the incredible support.

You guys are the greatest.

Robb, that "Cool Pad" turned so awesome! Absolutely beautiful. A small group of us were sitting around Mojave Oasis a few weeks ago talking about how amazing your art is

Robb I have to say I love the yellow hibiscus painting I bought from you a few years back but my ultimate goal is to own one of those gorgeous architectural pieces.

Considering I know how much they drive you crazy to paint because of those super straight lines I thought I would give you fair warning!

Beautiful red tiki in that vignette as well.

Nice to have you back!
