Your other pieces are great Kinny, I just think you
really nailed the "mid century aesthetic" with "the Entrance to Cannibal Land"

It has a simple yet primitive subject & color palette that screams "Mid Century Modern"
well done my good man!

You know I have a weakness for Nguzunguzus, I love how he turned out - dark and moody yet vibrant. I like that he is NOT mounted to the prow of a canoe - like he is a living being and that all the prow decorations are statues of HIM.

LLT!!!
Genius! I was over on Maui and saw the new Disney / Hawaiian resort. Nice... but boy... they sure could have used YOUR ART in the hall ways and rooms. I mean the stuff they have now is nice and ... bland... but your designs are so much more interesting and powerful, fantastic color choices! REAL art! Okay, may be not "Cannibal Family" hanging in a hotel room ... might scare the kids (he he he ) ... but my new fave is the Bamboo Ben / LLT piece "the Entrance to Cannibal Land" . - BEEUTEEFULL!

I GROCK you Kenny! I hope I get you- and your unyielding march forward, along this weird sandy tropical coastline... ever seeking that never seen before sight... to the human eye... around the next dune, or beyond that dark waving clump of palm trees... exploring this mysterious island of Tiki legend... we are your invisible friends, a unseen cyber-tiki-tribe connected together by the net. We huddle around our flickering screens - a tribe gathered around a camp fire in the tropical night, as you walk in from the darkness. You' are our Hoo-doo man. Our Witch-Doctor. Our tribal wizard, who's wandered far far out to the other side of the island... to the edge and back. Back with tales of lands, and creatures, and strange terrible and beautiful things, mystery mythology from out there. Painting the cave and hut walls with their images. You make these things dance in the fire light and come alive for us... who all hunch and watch and listen and marvel. Thanks!
You can turn and trudge back out into the unexplored parts of paradise again, and I know I''ll be waiting here by my flickering computer to hear and see more mysteries you'll bring back.

Mike! He IS a living fellow... as is the bird gazing into the moon's reflection...
Glad you liked him... i had fun with the lighting... Been having a LOT of fun with lighting..as you will see below...

Sold nine of those prints and took all my profits and got some cash and 12 prints for myself!
Have to shoot over to the stealthisart.com HQ this week
and sign em before they send them off!
Thanks to all y'alls who bought a Nguzunguzu print
during the 24-hour exclusive run on stealthisart.com...
There will only be 21 in existence....
NOW THAT's a GOOD INvestment...

Brad.. i feel the same... eagerly awaiting what bubbles up from the unknown lands of my art-brothers! Too many folks have already planted their flags in the ordinary...
let's take em somewhere else,eh?


Okay....had a BIG week!
sold off 7 pieces and had to "prep" em
(hanging wire/cleanup,mailing)
and 2 "nibbles" as i call them....
(sales in progress)
submitted two pieces to the la Luz Group Exhibition
visited Holden over at the farm and got some secret projects brewing there..
had that stealthisart.com print thing
and STILL had time to bang out and POST three new paintings!
All for YOU,dear Ohana..

the first two are more ordinary
but the third,i feel,is EXTRA ordinary!

Here...lemme show youse!

"Lono and Ku"
acrylic gouache on masonite
12x12"


"the Welcoming Smile"
(Kararau Warshield East Sepik,PNG)
acrylic gouache on wood with a Bamboo Ben frame
12x18"

and a BIG SMILE for y'alls!


anyways....ho hum on those above two
them's was just warm-ups for THIS ONE!

"Around the Fire"
acrylic gouache on wood with a PERFECT Bamboo Ben frame
16x20"


i took the concept and characters of "Entrance to Cannibal Land"
and placed them around a fire,ringed by ominous skulls...
a post feast celebration?
a Mystical ancestral rite in the jungle?
hmmmm.....

Here's the ring around the fire
to show y'alls how i handled the central lighting of the fire...


Here's a closeup of one of the shields and the thick and tangled jungle behind him..


Here's some more of the shields with some scattered bones in the foreground... a thigh bone and a skull
and some RIBS!
mmmm ribs....


another foreground shield
and more scattered bones in the brush...


and these last two fellows
bathed in the fire's light...
also note the bones tied in the trees..
these guys are SERIOUS!



anyways...time for beddie-bye!
Talk atcha all soooooon!

My mind is reeling with how you keep coming up with this fantastical stuff and painting it so fast. I can only think time travel is involved: you actually take months and months to paint these and then hop into your personal tardis and give it to yourself a few days after you started. Am I right, doctor Kenny?
