"Greeter" - now that's pretty cool. I like the simple moody vibe off of that one.

"Lester" - What can I say other than he must be pickled by now, sitting at the Mai Kai this long!

LOVE THEM BOTH...



Thanks Greg! And yeah...He's probably downed a lot of Barrel's by now!

No Mike, Lester is the only true creation of mine in the painting. Everything else is straight out of the Mai Kai's Tahitian dining room. I'll post some of my reference pics tomorrow!

For MDM and anyone else interested....below are pics of the Mai Kai dining room my painting takes place in. My wife, the kids and I love having dinner here! And I've made the ultimate sacrifice and ate dinner here many times in order to properly soak up the ambiance to then translate it to my painting!

I of course have taken some liberties with the room for the sake of the painting!

Robert, I like your version of the lamp - it reminds me of a Papua New Guinea tribesman



Since I can't visit the Mai Kai, I appreciate your "sacrifice" of spending so much time there in order to obtain a more authentic painting for me

Yeah, there is some resemblance. And as to the Mai Kai...I may need a few more visits soon to get the room "right"!

Hi All! Stopped work on Lester again (he's driving me nuts!) to do something I've been planning for some time. A painting on a cigar box. Here are my steps so far (excuse the blurry pics!) Should make a great swizzle stick holder!

Very nice Swizzle Stick box Robert, reminiscent of black velvet

Yeah that's what I'm kinda going for. It looks so much nicer in person. Everyone who sees it comments that it feels like something that was printed on the box that has faded and been scratched off with time.

My first impression was that the black was on top of the color and was scratched off to make the design. The technique is called sgraffito in ceramics, not sure what it would be called in painting.
