Hey Folks!
great seeing y'alls at Oasis
and a big MAHALO for all the hugs/loves/sales/laughs/insight/etc...
still recovering AND will be cruising to Mexico for a few days with the wife
her idea,but Hey! everyone deserves a break every once in a while..

Jonesy,Hank...
Aw shucks....
Peewee kiwi is now safely at the home of Ray and Queen Kamehameha
enjoying drinks (Shirley Temples,of course!) in a hut in the yard!
Thanks you two,for all you do!

KAHAKA-great meeting you too!
Thanks for adopting them
if you need feeding/care instructions
just PM me...


Duddy-how's tricks?
Glad to see you smilin
as usual!


and Robb,my shrunken head velvet man!
Thanks buddy!

I wish i had more to offer this entry than a single painting
and a post-Oasis studio tour...
but that's the way it goes....
sorry...

Should be back to normal in a few days...

first...the painting...

"Mooai"
acrylic and paintpen on carved wood


here's a detail...


My soul sistah Caroline (the Hobo) Roe from Cheeseland
always sends and brings treats to paint on..
She seemed quite amused with the Cow piece
so,it had to be "tikified" somehow...
so a MOOAI it became!

If you took the time to do the LLT crossword puzzle in Tiki magazine
a few issues back
you would have seen a question on there
that was something like...
"Species of Cow indigenous to Easter Island"
a mooai..get it?
Anyways,i'll be seeing the ol soul sistah from another mister
in a few weeks and can't wait to present it to her in person! YAY!

And now onto the
Self-guided Studio Tour..
Post Oasis and despite selling VOLUMES of work
i still came home with a crapload of art!
So i decided to Salon Style the place
and get as many pieces up on the walls as i could...
Here it is in all it's white wall,modular ceiling,dusty glory...
If you'd like to rescue any of these tiki pieces from having
to hang crowded on a white wall
PM me and make an offer...
Or if you have a question about a title
or a narrative behind a certain piece...
(please send a picture with an arrow or description)
DO NOT write me with...
"Duuuuuuh.... How much for the Tiki piece?
You know the one you did a while ago..."
Picture and description please....
if you cannot describe it
it hasn't seared itself into your brain enough..
go back and look at a better pic of it a few pages back..
DO NOT dash my slim existing faith in human kind with stupid questions...
Thank you!

Now we may proceed..
watch your step...














Some of these fellows had never been up in the studio
they're so new!






That's it! a record of the studio post-oasis
just in case some cartel cuts my head off
South of the border!
Que Lastima!

Bon Voyage!

Kinny likes to rock it like a boogie woogie choo choo train
Train...Train...Train...Train
He's got the boogie woogie woogie spread all the place
Got it stacked to the ceiling-got it stickin' in your face
You know that Kinny likes to rock it like a boogie woogie choo choo
train


That's some body of work there Kinny!!! I like the non-tiki work that we don't get to see like the "Lecherous Circus Performer" and the "Embracing Elephants"

Bon Voyage, and don't worry about the Cartel - you're a good paying customer, they won't touch you

Thanks friends!
You kids are one of the main reasons i keep playing and posting!
Well......Oasis post ART-um Depression is finally faded away...
Went on a cruise to Ensenada with the wifey and didn't read or sketch one lick!
Then,with studio re-organizing and a fun-filled day last friday
visiting the oceanic Arts exhibit at the San Diego museum of Art
(there's a Bosch,a Giotto,Elgreco,Picasso,Miro,Clder, and a whole bunch more to examine)
and the Freaky boutiki gallery Closing Reception...
Sold three and just last Saturday had yet another piece sold to a psychologist! go figure!
Wonder what he'll find inside the Magical Fish.....

What a blessing that Hodadhank is!
Thanks again pal,for not only sharing our work with the locals
but especially for UNDERSTANDING and being involved wholly in the scene!
Well, the mix of art and hanging with artist friends must've really sparked the engine back up..
cause i gots my GAME back!
YAY!
post-shows are the worst to recover from....
but Saturday thru Monday
i finally got back on the bandwagon!
First off, a commission i've been working on...
This piece was basically to be about the invasion of the Humboldt Squid in San Diego
Thousands were in the waters as well as washing up on shore..
They can get as big as 5 feet and are very aggressive..
They're called the Red Devil Squid because of their Mean nature and red color...
Anyways, said patron wanted this piece in a Polynesian Storyboard style...
I'll post the actual shots of the painting later tonight..
here's the water-soluble pencil on watercolor paper approved study for the piece..
(after a few unsuccessful attempts...)
Here it is....


One of my earlier attempts was to try it in a Solomon Islands style..


But the style was waaaay too intricate for a 24x36 canvas...

I decided to make it actually resemble a wooden carving,like the storyboard
so stay tuned and i'll share tonight!
Thanks friends!
