What a week!
LOTS of false starts and puttering about this week...
usually happens after a HUGE Art-Blast....
system shuts down and what-not....

TabooDan-Please do keep checking in! Something for everybody!
Thanks for being one of a handful of Canadians into Tiki!

Kiki-put aloe Vera on it-in the peeling stage today...
Chloe is pure magic! Her and gwen...crackups!
Thanks for adopting the "Sea monster"!
One of my favorites in the hut of one of my favorites!
can it get any better!
Now get thee crackin!
Oasis is around the corner!

SOK-Thanks for the visit! Happy Travelling!
Watch your head tho!
That is Col Clysdalle's hut up there...
the Whore-er! the Whore-er!

Amy-thanks Love! And thanks for welcoming some LLT art into your ultra-cool pad!


First off...
Art Swap 2009 piece...
the theme is PNG!
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=32054&forum=18&start=0&97
"Walk thru the Jungle"
16 1/2" tall by 6" wide
sumi and gold ink,gouache on Aquarelle Water paper
(100% cotton!)
i simply love saying that!


This one started as TWO gents
but like i said,this has been a week of FALSE STARTs
but i think i done waded thru the molasses!
Here's up close...



Started one of them Super-Secret projects
and ended up having to wash it off and start anew...

so i dumped the Super-Secret piece
and finished this for the Hukilau Art show...
I was told the theme is polypop architecture...
so i made this up..somewhere i'd like to live...

did acrylic washes of payne's gray first
to get the initial forms and lighting..


Close-up...


LET THERE BE COLOR!
(well, after 5-6 hours the color begins to build up..


Here's the whole piece...
"Imaginary Tiki Palace"
acrylic on canvas


Close-up

Condo unit on top....


Don't really know or care if this is Neo-Tiki or Poly-pop
probably Poly-poop...but it was fun to paint!:lol:
I thought by combining different tikis from diff places
that they would all be forced to get along and also
that the interior could be SUPERHAPPYTIKIOVERLOAD!
the perfect Tiki Palace!
for me, at least..
C'mon over anytime!

HAve a safe trip to Florida,little guy!

Nice new piece for Hulikau! I like the combo of all the good things, A frame, moai's, bird hats, carved door frames, and more! I would so live there. Superhappytikioverload is a good thing.

<3 !!!

Everyone needs a little Ruzic original in their lives, I can feel the magic when I walk into the room and see my Sea Monster! It makes you kinda jump up a little bit and feel like breaking out with a little dance. Like happy fever. Superhappytikioverload. My kid gave me a tiki birdhouse for Mom's day and she said it was ready for a tiki party with the Hula Girls and Kinny! LOL! We could shrink ya all down real tiny and have a shindig in there!

mp-Dude! i just read on your thread that you'll be in the Artist Alley at Oasis also!Stoked....

Kiki!
I'll work on that Dr. Shrinker Ray so Lil' Blue's dream cam come true... you can work on the "revert-to-normal size" Ray!:)
So, have you figgered out how to frame that Sea Monster of yours?

Ravers!
i hope the Tiki palace fits right in with the cleaner,more purposeful lines of the other poly-pop pieces..
Glad you're into the swap...
about time you contributed something (art-wise) to the TC community!


Sam!
carving fingers and pinstriping guitars in between brushstrokes!
You never cease to amaze,my friend...
Thank YOU for the world YOUR paintings reside in!
Never a dull moment,right back atcha!

Thanks for all the visits and chit-chat and food for thought!

Hey LLT!
Cannibal Village is rad! I really like the toned
down light colored FG, MG, and BG so you can really see all the goings
on. Shows great restraint. And the minimal colors elsewhere. So many goodies as
far as the eye can see! Easy to get lost in. The piece for "Hukilau" is another smash!

Great seeing you at the Nooner!
Oh yeah! Here's a couple of snaps of our latest adoption from
said party...sorry Mr. Hamel! Along with the totem piece we got
a while ago! Bruddah Bruno digs it too!

Room for one more on the totem!


Sweet! Sorry about the flash.

Friendship charm is SO cute!!!
I love the smiley Moais in the morning piece too!



The stained glass Octopus - it's gorgeous, rawkin style!
You should do more sea creatures... Meebee check out Discovery channel's "Nature's Most Amazing Events" - they've been having a lot of eps with sea creatures & the likes.
