Hope you had fun at Disneyland! Right about now I am guessing they have Small World Holiday, and Haunted Mansion Holiday. I have never managed to make it to Disneyland during the Christmas season, so have not seen those yet but I hear they are really cool. I can definitely see the progress, and still maintain it has that Pirates of the Caribbean ride ambiance...which is very cool. Not sure I understand the grass part... have they run aground, or is it a bar in the foreground?

Hey Tigertail! They haven't run aground (not that I really know what's going on in this painting! ) that would just be some river grass poking out of the water. The Island of Tiki Tower is amalgam of a bunch of stuff...one being the Everglades I've got at my back yard!

Not everyone's had the good fortune to grow up in a swamp. I'm pretty sure anyone who has could tell you what that scene smells like and can hear the buzzing of the bugs. It looks great.

Robert, the setting for the "Fisherman God's Dilemma" reminds me of the old Humphrey Bogart / Katharine Hepburn movie, The African Queen, where Charlie and Rosie have lost the channel and are struggling to make way through small openings amidst dense reeds...

Thanks Chris! Feeling great! Hope to have the painting done in a week or so!

Thanks Tom! I remember watching that with my Dad many years ago! Hope you are enjoying the book and print!

Robert, your art book is awesome, as is the range of your art, from "Mr. Brown" to "Professor's Got a Crush" to "Mai Kai Tiki No. 2"...

"Moonlight on Ku" is a very nuanced creation, and it takes on more meaning after reading up on Ke`eku Heiau, a 500 to 600 year-old sacrificial temple dedicated to Ku as war-god.

So glad you like the book Tom! And thanks for the kind words. Even though I love doing the Tiki art, I do love many other styles and genres, especially pulp. Glad you enjoyed those!

Gonna read up on Ke`eku Heiau!

By the way I have one set of my book and print left if anyone is interested. $25 shipped for both, the prints is 5x6 inches. Here's a link to the marketplace post:

Ok! Changed direction a bit on the background. Feel like I'm in the home stretch!

Looks great, how's the "daughter" coming along? Does she recognize herself?

It's good it's really good, love the glow and the little hole in the wood on the boat, the depth. It's one to just sit back and stare at for a long time.

Happy Holiday, Wendy

OK I admit I have not seen much in the way of swamps. However if you ever paint an ocean beach scene you better paint that accurately I grew up in a small town in Oregon that has something like 5 different beaches and we used to go almost every weekend. I think I also have the look of a rain forest pretty well down (Oregon has these as well) ...does that count as a swamp?

Kidding aside, the painting is looking very beautiful I admire your use of color and shadow.

Thanks Mike, Wendy and Tigertail! Really appreciate all the comments, even the environmental fact-checking!

As to your question, Mike, about my daughter's likeness...I don't think it particularly looks like her just yet and it may not end up being her. If she really wants it to look like her I may have to bust out the projector and trace it. My daughter has a strange relationship with my paintings. Being that she loves painting and drawing she is always initially fascinated and will sit on my lap as I begin a painting....then, more often than not, she get's a bit creeped out and will watch me paint from a distance. There have been a few paintings she's been afraid of (she's only 5 by the way). Lester Dines At The Mai Kai is one...she would walk by and kinda check it out from the corner of her eye. She is feeling a little the same about this one...and I guess it can be creepy to a 5 year old. So if she feels that way I may not want to add her likeness to it....we'll see.
