Hey thanks MP! How the La Luz show go?
Hope you sold your piece.

Used the same frame as the previous one.

Mahalo!

Hey Jason,
Haven't been able to visit TikiCentral for a while, but your's was the first thread I came back to visit - still is my favorite. Great new art! Still love your work! One day I'll have one of them on my walls . . .

Hey Danno! Hows it going? Wondered where you were.
Thanks for checking in to my thread and digging the new
paintings.

This new one in progress is based on one of my favorite images
by Sylvain. Kinda reminds me of Wyeths "Christinas World".
Hope to do it justice on velvet.

Mahalo for looking and lurking!

Hey Jason,
That's one of my favorite Sylvain photos, too. I had commissioned a velvet from Song Shen on the same picture. It will be interesting to see the contrast between the two. I definitely love the feel of your painting so far! Is this a commissioned work or are you selling this one?

Cheers Danno! This one is approx. 14" x 18" and is a velvet study for a larger
velvet Commission which will be 24" x 32". So I will probably be selling the
study depending on how it turns out.

I'm thinking you must pour liquid gold into your paintings to make the colors so rich

Does it still qualify as a black velvet painting if you paint over all the black velvet?

Looks great, the details of the schooner (?) are really starting to pop.

I agree with MadDog, the details on the ship are coming out very nice. Your best so far . . . ? It's hard to decide. Everyone of your velvets would look great on one of my walls! Thanks again for sharing all of your amazing art with us!
