Chongo!
Thank you my friend!
Warms my heart that i could help put a zazz anna zing in your mornin!
and the indigo is what cools down the painting tonally!
Rock on....

raves-Muchos gracias!
the Butterfly and the moon and the meeting house and the foreground tiki and the volcano
are all trying to tell me a story....it unfolds in tiny bits....no title yet.....
yes...drag WEEG to palm Springs...he'll enjoy it...

Paipo!
Warming my heart yet agin......this time with a miss Scarlett story!
what a sweetie! Tikis and butterflies are always popping up here and there....
Things will start slowing down for me around June-July....would love to have a chance
to make Scarlett expand her already creative imagination!

hewey!
go to the eye doctor!
That's what i have to do more and more as time wears on!
does anybody have some baby eyes they could donate for a transplant?
anybody?
paipo?


Brad!
first off!
Amazing zipfizz zombie on the latest
and the pig rider sketch is right on track!
Up close this piece does get a little blurry....
I want it to be really jungle-y and confusing
and beautiful at every turn
and every stumble....
You'll see what i mean in a minute.....
As for taping sketches....
always helps ...
why do studies if you can't use 'em?
d-uh-uh!
whilst painting,we are in the air....
the under drawing and the sketch reference
tether us to the earth just enough to let us paint....
thanks for being an art soul brother!
Okay! Chop! Chop!
Only a few more days.... have 1 and 1 half paintings to go....
finished the indigo blackline and it is drying with a satin finish as we speak...
and i'm ready to 'ave another go at it....with color!
ZIPFIIIIIIIIIZZZZZZZZ!
the piece is still untitled and it is 3 by 3 feet in diameter.....



the volcano and the tree branch in the foreground...
it's graphically flat...but not flat......



here's the 2 volcanoes and some night sky...
and the NOMNOM Super Friendly Butterfly Gang (working title...)



here's the meeting hut on the riverbank...
tiki on the left leaned over into the picture....what a HAM!



here's the ground level village...close to the river....



And here we have the NOMNOM Super Friendly Butterfly Gang
off on their perilous adventure to ......
i dunno....
plug up the volcano?
flee the village?
become kidnapped by the Butterfly Crew?



here's all three of the huts in one picture....
i wanted to get a sense of distance.....
even tho it's flat....
it's an illusion!



the night sky with the moon to the left and a sky filled with smoke and stars.....



Close up of the riverbank in the right foreground...
foreground.....even tho it's flat.....




Scene of the whole riverside village complex.....



that's it! it should be dry and ready for phase three....
color accenting/shadows/lighting....
the POP phase before the BIG POP phase with puff paints!
unnerstaind?
See ya soon!

wee! the butterfly with the NOMNOM guys are still my favorite, can't wait to see this whole piece POP!

It's funny you kept mentioning "flat" cause I try to envision the butterfly carrying those little guys, or almost hanging out inside the wings, then realize that the thickness of the wings would be too heavy for it to even fly....unless it's magical!

I like the story you're trying to develop so far, keep gooooing!


Anata wa kakkoii desu!

I don't get over here very much but I just wanted to say how cool ALL of your
stuff is LLT. And the various pics of your space at the parking lot sale are
great. Always easy to spot LLT in the crowd.

Okee....Powered til about 3 last night and about to do it all again....
"the Night Voyage" is the only thing close to a title i have so far....
Gonna finish this today..
and prolly the night Rowers
and start on the final 15x60 vertical totem
and i got til Tues night/Wed morning....
and i ran outta ZIPFIZZ....
great.....
but i still got KWAWFEE and CIGGIES!
wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!
been on vacation since Friday
and have been painting at least 14-16 hours a day
(i have lunch and potty and research and ciggie breaks during all that)
if you paint this much YOU MUST GET UP and STRETCH every hour!

Anyways....
i think the painting fever has consumed my brain...
it's all i can think about....
and COLOR!
COLOR!
COLOR!
I promised you color..
"the Night Voyage" of the NOMNOM Super Friendly Butterfly Gang.....
almost done!



here's some details...
there's always a lot of cleanup and sealing
cleanup and sealing....
scanning the jungle landscape for a flaw
or an uncolored flower....



Mr. Mooney!



NOMNOM Super Friendly Butterfly Gang coming to life slowly!



Tiki!



Hut and tiki



River bank....




tree close-up and volcano looming in the back....



i sooooooooo want to live in this meeting hut!
BAMBOO BEN! i got a project for you....




With Thursday looming for palm Springs delivery...
i still have that 15x60 vertical totem to start
and finish!
So i did some studies and will probably
decide on something completely different
to paint on there with acrylic! Hi Ho!





that's all i gots!
Back to marathon painting super-session!

The amount of detail in your work is mind blowing.

I'm sitting at my desk with my jaw wide open. (I wonder if the co-workers think I'm looking at something I shouldn't be...)

Wow man. Wow.
