Hi Kenny!
Been a while since I've been on TC,
I should check in more often...
Your latest work is through the roof AMAZING!

I especially like "the Approaching Storm" , "Waterfall" and "Awaiting"
You made them look so luminous, and with facets like a glowing jewel!
So beautiful!!

Claudette

Love the two new ones Ken.
I really like the texture detail. Makes me feel all textury inside.
Keep on with these stain glass pieces, really cool.

Hello Friends!
Back for another update...
But first.....

Roland-These probably would liven up any Dentist Office!
And its got toothpicks included!
grrrrrrrrrr!

Mad Doggie!
Glad it did evoke a response...
Sometimes an emotion in place of a story
can still pack a wee whallop!
Thanks for the visit!

Benzart
He's been waiting for centuries...
and all his friends are bones...
Now you're gonna make me cry!
WAAAAAAAAAH!
Thank you for visiting,Mr. Carver Friend!

Jonesy-SLAP CHOP!
Is that like a SHAM WOW?

you da man!

GROG

Looks like he is "awaiting" somebody to remove the toothpick stuck to the front of his nose.


Actually, besides the obvious Dentist Office reference
I decided to hide a SLY TRIBUTE to your peeper size
in that painting....
Was hoping you wouldn't catch it,but i forgot...
you got Prehistoric hunter's eyes....
See you tomorrow,you bald lump of love!
BTW..kikekeki was asking about you!


ZeroTiki-Mahalo!
So nice of you to pop by and look around!
Come visit anytime!
Our hours are Mon-Fri 10am -9pm Weekends Noon-5pm


Boooooooooooooo!
MO GREEN ONIONS!
Booker T!!!!!!!!!!
Now that makes me cry all joyful an stuff!

Can't wait to see ya Thursday night!

Claudette and Jason-
Thanks you two!
speaking of jewels...
my eyes lit up when i realized that the talented FLUFF kids
came by for a TAG TEAM!
Group HUG!
MMMMMMMMMM!
I could squeeze you both forever!

Claudette-those lil ladies you sculpted are sooooo sweet and cute!
I still think of that red dragon you created
(saw it at Oasis)
is beautiful!
You kids RAWK!
give puppy a mouth kiss for me!

Brad-
Glad you like!
Woofman turned out killer,BTW

Soon you will be in Long beach...
Close enough to Art Jam!!!
I'll work on one of them next time we jam
and show you how i get that texture!

Again...Mahalos to you ALL for poppin over and humoring me!


Okay... Here's some bad news i have for you all...
After much misgivings and soul searching
I've realized that Tiki no longer holds a special place in my heart
The crowds,the popularity,it's just gotten too Big...

So, I've decided to switch to another genre
equally misunderstood,but kitschy nonetheless...
Clowns!

I've decided to drop Tiki
and paint only Clowns
from now on!

Can anyone direct me to Clown Central?


"Sad Clown" (working title)
acrylic and cel vinyl on 16x20 masonite


"Coulorophobia"
acrylic and cel vinyl on 14x14 canvas



Just Kidding!
These are for Dave's Not Home's Birthday Celebration/Exhibition
"Send in the Clowns"
at the Gallery DeLa Cruz @ The Green Light Gallery - 1531 N. El Camino, San Clemente...i imagine around 8-ish????

So c'mon down and CLOWN AROUND'!!

aaaaaaaaaaaand to assure you all that i haven't gypped y'all out of a Tiki piece this week...
here is some more progress on an ongoing project "the Journey"
I worked on the water and transparency for a few days
helping this pup gradually come to life...

Here it is as of today...


and here's some water details...






That's it!
more exciting stuff in the future!
And remember...
Sam Gambino will be in town at Don the Combovers
this Thursday night!

starting around 8-ish
C'mon down and give Sam some props about his new haircut!

I think you of all people know my experience with THE CLOWN...
and yet these dun freak me out as much!


'specially that Sad Clown piece!
He looks so forlorn; like Droopy

Boo-hoo!

Pretty sweet tho!
and whether intentional or not
nice homage to De Niro in Taxi Driver

I remember watching that movie ALL the time because of my brother.
he even had that poster with De Niro in the hall with the 2 guns about to go off.
han't wait to see the clown piece in person!


And the Coulorophobia piece has so many diff personalities
but they seem all so sad to be clowns
or just bored with being a clown
while others just make light of the situation!

looking at it over all tho
it just makes me think of a Japanese game show title card show.

SUPER HAPPEH FUN TIME CLOWNS
YOU LAFF NOW!

...followed by many flashing bright colors
giving the world the epilepsy...

can't wait to see more progress on this!


& YAY for tomorrow!

Hey Ken- It was sooo great to see you guys Thursday! My wife had a great time too. Thanks a bunch for the excellent piece of Ruzic art too! We really dig it, and it has it's own place on display in our house too. That's saying a lot because my wife doesn't agree to just let ANY art be out in the house! Most of my shrunken heads, swamis and one-eyed monsters are confined to my office....

Thanks so much again! You're an excellent friend!

Hi Kenny

Great work on the recent pieces, I love the waterfall one, and "Awaiting" especially. Just thought I'd drop you a quick note to say Fern Boy arrived safe and sound after his sail across the pacific and I finally managed to see him recently - He's awesome and I can't wait to put him on display in my future tiki bar!

Keep up the good work!!

Cheers.
