Brad-Thanks my friend!
Your latest is GORGEOUS!
Especially the orchids!
TIKI JEDI MASTER!
and a mag cover and article!
Glad you're finally gettin what you've deserved and worked so hard for!
Totally thought of you during the Art JAm...
wish you were closer!
Next time you can make it down here
I'll gather up the tribe for one!
Miss you Buds!

Well....sorry for the wait...i was talking to TikiShark...
Hope that wasn't too rude...

ANYWAYS....
Have a "Journey" looming in the future i should finish
and a 5 foot pew commission and 8 Bible-based pieces
and possibly MOasis/goin Primitive
startin to get serious about getting the website up and full o' art
and another SECRET event to prep for during the summer
and rumor has it..
maybe some new mugs or something...
etc. etc. ad infinitum ...
Man! if i didn't have this day job i could actually get stuff done!
but i would have to like the taste of cardboard and book pages
and live in a box....
and that ain't gonna happen!
Ever try to hang paintings in a cardboard box?
it ain't pretty!
Anyways....
"MOONBIRD" is Finished!
Layers and Layers....
Here!
I'll show you some of the progress shots
(Too Busy to post-so i just shot...you know how it is when you get on a ROLL!)

Here you can see the initial colored pencil shading to split up the planes and give it a initial depth...

Some areas i rendered the shadows
other areas,the light....

Here you can see how rough it looks close-up,but i think this is actually BIGGER than actual size!
Man! That was a lotta areas to render
Sometimes you'd catch one that got away
and then have to hunt for that color and fill it in!

This is before all the lighting on the fishies.

Here's the Palms before they got their colored pencil shading...
After all the colored pencil was finished
it was sealed with a matte acrylic varnish
and worked over after that with cel vinyl
(it stuck just right on the surface)
and then it was DONE!
so her it is.....

"MoonBird"
Acrylic,cel-vinyl,and colored pencil on masonite
16x20
private collection



Here you can see the additional layers scumbled over the pencil shading
and,of course,the night needed stars
which were rendered over the entombed colored pencil layer..
a good view of the contrast on the cape and paddle
that was an initial red acrylic base
with a brick red colored pencil for shading
the palms also ..
an indigo colored pencil layer
sealed,and then rendered over with a happy bright green....

Above is a closer shot of the moonBoid...
after the initial indigo shadowing
i went in with white and the same blue of the ocean and lit it a bit more feathery-ish...
Also,you can see the white and lime green grass over the initial grass texture
to give it a multilayered look
as well as enhance the shadows more...

Here's a close-up of the palm and especially the grass..
very stylized,but it adds a welcome texture,i think!

and lastly..Close-up of the fishlies and to give you an idea of the water...
Well,this one was a fun diversion...

and speaking of diversions..
While awaiting for this to dry
i thought i'd just wing something....
So,after consulting yon sketchbooke
i banged out...
"Frenchy"
acrylic and cel=vinyl on masonite
16x20

Here's a close-up
so you can see the initial pencil under the sloppy layers..


i kinda like it messy
but bias is one of my stronger traits!

Talk with y'alls soon!
and again....Mahalos for all the lovely things you say and bring to this thread!
it'a a prime motivator!

Some collectors are low-key about their acquisitions
so i thought i'd play it safe.....
Thank you Wendy....for so many things!
I hope this makes you as happy as i felt painting and preening over it!
i am honored ,yet again,to be in your hut....
BIG HUGS at Oasis,doll!

OK, maybe I'm just jealous!

Ken I love your "stained glass" style of painting and this is another great example. I'm glad it went a GREAT home where it will be loved and surrounded by lots of other tiki art

FINALLY! WE HAVE OUR KINNY ART FRAMED AND HUNG. WE HAVE COLLECTED FOR SO MANY YEARS THE EVERY PIECE OF ART IS WEDGED INTO THE COLLECTION. HOWEVER I DID ONE MAJOR BUMP SO I COULD PUT MY PAINTING OF KINNY WITH HIS NEWEST PIECE OF ART. AS I SHOW HIS WORK I CAN SAY THIS IS THE ARTIST. THE OTHER FINE WORK IS IN A TIKI COLLECTION ROOM.

YOUR ART IS IMAGINATIVE AND BEAUTIFUL.

THANK YOU KINNY FOR ENHANCING OUR COLLECTION AND GIVING US SUCH JOY, WENDY AND DAN

Ah! Where does the time go?
Here's aquick drive-by with a brand new piece that blends a few styles
quite almost successfully,to be honest...

zerostreet-Many mahalos you my friend,it makes me so happy to bring some smiles and palpitations to the ohana!

Mike-that Blondie cartoon is not entirely correct....i usually am whittling with a big knife when i give my pitch!
Thank you for the nice thoughts and i am glad too that it went to a good home...
and you shouldn't feel a shred of jealousy,just happiness that art is spread about the globe in a myriad of styles!!!!

and Wendy-thank you for ALL that you do
your perseverance,talent and creativity astonish me all the time.
i am honored that a piece of my heart is living in your hut!
I'm sure the moonBird and the rowers are making many friends with the metropolis of paintings and mugs and wonderful objects you have in there!
mahalos and besos!

marcus-i thank you..... Did Toe give you that hug when he was down undah?
or did he keep it to himself?
Admirable scene you boys started down there.....muchos kudos!

Welp.... work is looming so i gotta be quick!
This piece,like i said earlier
is trying to blend cubist plains that i normally save for the abstracts and the stained glass pieces
and throwing it into my quickie "cartoon realistic" style...
it was fun yet daunting,but it makes me wanna do more!

"the Invocation"
acrylic and cel vinyl on masonite
16x20


here's a close-up of his face...


drummin hands


some of the foreground and the "music" spiral ling upward to the gods...


more music sailing into the sky....


and my favorite part...the moon!
where the plane really got broken up!



That's it! Gotta go!
Thanks for all the love,Ohana!

restrained?!?!?!?
Practically non-existent,old buddy!
Only bust the paint pens out for special occasions
and when i want a certain look!
it's mostly about paint and brushes now!
a bit more time-consuming tho...
