I like "Morning". It too is fabric-worthy. Hope the show was swell and the sell was well.

I'm glad that first mug's out of the way

Robb!
Gracias!
Did a few little Rowers a while back...one of those themes that's always fun to revisit!

Brad-U2 Good!
You inspire me...at least 4 days a week!


Babs!
thank you AND Amy for adopting some babies! I hope they fill your home with Love and InnerLight!
Blazing....trails! Yeah,that's it!
I think when artists shut off their heads and just listen to that inside instinct,that beautiful happy things can't help but be born!Sometimes the subconcious is leagues ahead..new styles already examined and inventoried......
and then...when the mind is quiet...it gets doled out! A dollop at a time!
BLIP! BLOP!
Let's make More Mugs! I have 10 sketchbook pages awaiting creation!
Can't wait to see that PNG drum/mug glazed!

The abstracts are fun and surprising!
Watched a DVD yesterday "the Mystery of Picasso" where he paints/draws about 20-25 pieces..
Realized it's not awful to cover/rub out stuff and repaint,as long as the piece succeeds!
I recommend it to anyone interested in the process of a great artist!
French with subtitles....
NOMNOM guys on Mugs.....Maybe.....

LOL-Alright! Alright!
Just don't SIC the dog on me!

Aloha All!
Thanks so much for all the hugs and nice comments and jokes at Damons!
it was fun AND overwhelming seeing all y'all!
But not as overwhelming as Thor's velvets.......


Brad!
Thank you ,my kind friend!
Been enjoying taking a flat linear drawing and diagonalizing
it and playing with light and shadow and creating different planes
yet still trying to keep it readable...talk about gettin transported!
Stuart Davis likened abstract painting to jazz and loooooved Bach organ fugues as well-both of them playing with notes and riffs and timing...
balancing it..kinda an aural type of painting!
And my pleasure about the Damons...
Everyone on the planet needs to see your art!
(except the dictators,cuz they would kidnap you
and make you their court painter!)

Ben!Pomona-Glass House-last night
opted to stay in the studio out of the rain
heard they're playing the Troubadour this weekend...
Spermy's going...you busy?

Sneaks!
thanks!
i have a little secret pet-project involving fabric prints so stay tuned!
the show a Damons was swell and i was stoked how many people left the booth with an adopted piece! I hope it brings them all joy and giggles!

Ben-they're waiting for you at my house...
i told em they were going to Frankies and they were excited!
Thanks man!

After Damons I spent a lot of time in the studio unpacking and such
when suddenly the fever hit!
Seeing as i had some new pads of watercolor paper
i did what comes natural!
Finished 8 pieces (3 are awaiting scans-cuz they're BIG!
and about 20 sketchbook pages of abstract studies and solutions..
i had a few days-was in hermit mode
why not play and relax and recover from Damons people overload!

here's what i come up wit...

"Five Tikis"


"the Traveller's Tale"


i like how the lower right corner evokes a ship with passengers
just slightly......

"the Rowers" a standard theme these days...
always fun to draw and elaborate upon


"the Grouch"


testing the waters on flattening multiple views/overlapping/etc.
diggin the way the hands landed on the page!

and lastly..
"the Sun at Rest"
a kind of Paul Klee inspired gent!


That's all!
back to Work!

Thanks Ben!
and thanks for pickin up those 2 shrunken heads!

He's gonna burn the edges-mount em on wood and clearcoat em!
They look cool at Frankies near the Shrunken Head painting!

Did a few BIGGER drawings (fergot the size...some European measurment)
on the Arches with ink and tissue paper staining and some water-soluble pencil shading...
HERE'S THE CLEANER SCANS
i took these just so you can see
the GROUND being BROKEn with these...
It seems like the Code is slowly being cracked on this style
And what a fun journey it has become!

Here's a fun little simple one
"the Undergrowth"
When i was a kiddle, one of the best things to do was to run off into the wilderness areas and just explore.I discovered that,under all the bushes and grasses.that there were nests and bugs and nifty little ferns and such!
I guess this piece is a salute to that...


Here's a drawing where a petroglyph has been stylized into a character or characters....
Let me introduce.... "the Flower Eaters"


Here's some studies for Tiki Moderne Abstract tikis
that i decided to give a fabric print composition to....
"Six"


Also attempted to simplify/revisit the Cannibal King
but in a cuter/abstracty style!


detail

found a new way of sbstracting skulls
paring them down to essentials...

Also, been working on the whole FEAST theme..
Here's 3 that developed one after the other...
Each one a little bit different
in characters/vegetation/and style a little too!

"Feast Day"

I like the birdman in the back,shouting his friends onward!

the next one has four of my little Moai friends jaunting along...
This one makes me smile sooooo big!
the colors just pop off the paper!
"the Dancing Platter"


some details....




and this last one,a little deeper in the jungle
and a little more mid-day...
"the Meal"


I like how this one has a Hawaiian,a Maori,and an Rapa Nuin (is that how you say it? Rapa "New-ee-en"?




So many stories pop up when i look at their attitudes and body language..
I'm glad that this style has gone so well...
I had been searching for a style
for my half-written "little lost tiki" kid's book
and i think this may be the look for it!
Funny how it all just clicks into place!
Just got a bunch of canvases,a few biggies and i think i may tackle
one of these-probably the Dancing Platter one!

and just so you don't think i dropped the paintings entirely...
started this one..some abstract masks...


That's it for now kind family......
see y'all at the Tonga hut next Saturday!

Kinny, Kinny, KINNY! Dude, you are really on fire my friend....the abstract works are just hands down my favorite works of yours. You are really floating this revival thing to new shores.

The Grouch and the Sun at Rest are just amazing pieces!!

Again, amazing new pieces! You're knocking this stuff out so fast you're gonna have to make a lay-a-way box with my name on it and just start tossing finished pieces into it. (I can make down-payments in Blue-Chip stamps, tiki mugs, Happy Meal toys, balls of twine, buttons, marbles, samolians and occasionally, dollars. I could also try to set you up with one of
these.)

BTW - totally unrelated.

Ooooooh, diggin' that piece on the left!

Boy, you're right about the mats. It's that hy falootin, reel arteest, metric sized paper that he uses. I couldn't do it right myself so I took mine to a framer and had them float the art between the mat and glass. I should learn how to do it myself; I'd rather spend the money on the art than the framing.

BABALU! Thanks man!It's been a fun voyage all throughout these past 20 years of creating....I love the excitement of discovering! I guess the love shines on through with these drawings! Have fun this week!

Thanks y'all!

LOL-OOOOh! liking that velvet kit! it looks sooo professional!
and thanks for the scoop on the paint-by-numbers museum! They had a show last year (dunno where) where artists were each given a paint by number and got to do their thing....missed out on that one! Thanks so much for liking the work and sharing your home with a few of my babies! If you want anymore just holler! They multiply like rabbits!
As for the matting/mounting question...
i usually just buy some matting/papyrus/bamboo thatching-spray mount it to a pre-cut size of illustration board-or even foamcore(this is for the papyrus/thatching-the regular matting is thick enough-cut it to size-get that puffy 2-sided acid free tape-apply it to the back of the drawing-balance it OVER the mat before applying-then slowly lower it onto the mat-press down-do one corner first and work outward while you press it down-so you won't get creases or buckles... TADA! now put your (cleaned both sides) glass in and the mounted drawing after that-and secure the drawing/mat/glass from the back! DONE!
hi-falootin?
who uses that word anymore?

teaKs!-Good to have you visit!
Stained Glass?
if it weren't for the lead-I'd be on it so bad! Chagall's stained glass of the Twelve Tribes amazes me at least once a week....stunning! If only....

Bowana!
Thanks pal!
Those look so great on the wall!
like little museum pieces!
like "official" "real" art or somethin!
How nice of you to invite Sister Wendy over!
She's such a sweetie-pie!
Are you kids dating?
Maybe we can send the Sister to Europe to do something about that metric system and weird drawing paper sizes! I have a miniature flag for you!!!

Thanks for the visits!
I'll post better pics of these this week, i promise!

Well, with the Tonga hut a few days away i have been working like a madman to get a couple of newbies to show...
Here's a new one...
the title just popped in the old head after finishing it....
"the Unseen Force" ink and tissue paper stain on Watercolor paper..


a force that propels these two travellers towards an unknown destination..The fish are also attracted,but the birds seem to be fleeing from it....Hmmmmmmmm!
That's it for now!
Laterz
