Hola Ohana!
Wow!
What a Great time was had at Don's on Saturday!
Biggest turnout EVER!
So many friendly faces
lots of hub-bub and hullabaloo!
and a Big Thank you to all the peoples who stopped by the booth
asked questions
contributed banter
and adopted a lil bit of kinny!
Live painting was a great way to kill 2 birds with one stone...
aaaaand i got a lot of hugs
got to harass and hassle people
and got to tell a few "so so wrong" jokes with a few lucky individuals

tho....as an aside,and this is not to judge,just an observation...
bring me some GOOD jokes....
all you've had were old tired stale chestnuts...
i appreciate the effort and sharing
but please people....
it would be nice to get a real clever joke every few events....


Here's some pics taken by friends there!



I'll be there October 10th
with my fellow art buffoons the Horne and the Toe
and rumor has it,another talented and well loved member of our art family...
more news later....

Thanks Lancey!
Wonderful seeing your smiling profile
and sharing a moment on Saturday
ya hot Topic old punk!
and Jungle ginger was sly and sweet and lovely as per usual....
BTW
THEM MODFISH....
They STACK!
Would love to produce a range of the colors ,as they would be great little home objects
not only as mugs for the Modernist Tiki Environ
but also can be utilized as...
cereal bowls
Coffee mugs
candy dishes
planters
mini fish bowls
a place to float your lotus
a desk paperclip holder
to name a few!
So be sure and get a bunch
as i'd like to encourage Tikifarm and Holden to expand upon this concept...
mugs,bowls,shots,a pitcher,ashtray
the possibilities are shouting to be brought to reality

That 'showcase' piece is looking insane. Nice work Kinny.


Thanks Swiz! i plan on at least another 12 to 20 hours
to make it snazzy and give it that OOMPH
Grateful for the encouragement!
That was another great thing about live painting at Don's last Saturday...
Getting folks engaged
answering questions
explaining the narrative
unveiling techniques and mediums.
it was humbling to hear such sweet things from the Ohana
so,if an afternoon of drunken Tikiphiles is a litmus test for how the piece will be received....
then,so far so good!

It's nice to know the ol' seagoat still has his peepers all eagle-eyed!
Have you ever looked at a goat's pupils?
they resemble the spinning hexagon on Saturn's poles
(supposed proof of tetrahedral/Hyper-dimensional geometry
and Torque Physics/Fusion that Hoagland writes about....)
but anyways...
GOOD EYE,MATE!
More on that later...
Due to "punishable by Death" Disclosure agreements with Das TikiFarm
we can slowly give y'alls sneak peeks and teasers of the Anniversary mugs ,but
no finished product revelations until we get closer to the exhibition....
As for the Moai Bowl... would love an "A-OK" Moai bowl to be produced....
always try to put personal favorite/dream mugs,in the hopes
someone will help me get them produced...
Thanks for all the nice words and thumbs ups!
Makin me feel like i'm on the right path...

Your Mai-Tais at Zero-G was a delight to behold at Oasis!

RV,you are always too generous with your words...
i could only hope to one small part of his genius
i feel like a beta-tape and Picasso is the HD
He IS an artist to strive to emulate
his drive
his knowledge
his bravery and confidence
To be honest....
last weekend i felt a bit like Picasso.....
and here's why...
it was HAWT in the studio
Californy is being mean as of late
and Sweltering us poor artists in our concrete hot boxes...
Sooo, i was painting and hangin at the studio
in my unnerpants all day!
feelin like Picasso....
Would love to attempt some kind of Tiki Guernico
given the time....
Anyways,Thank you again for the visit!

and you are hilarious and so giving with sharing your amazement and delight!
That's our jobs as artists,to inspire and move the viewer...
Glad and feelin blessed that is the result of these aimless scrawlins and smatterings!
Thank you!


Alrighty.... didn't get enough progress on "Too Much Information" at Don's on Saturday..
So i will spare you all the repetition ...

BUT! Seeing as i had a Maori style drinking totem
it should be balanced with some Hawaiian Ku gents having a slurp!

Since our last conversation
Was able to squeeze in three sessions on a new piece for November
and decided to throw in a Kainoa bowl!


Here is the first session
a nice blue ground to offset the cadmium orange of it's twin piece...


and a close-up


Second session
more mustard and some cream
the mustard will start to take on an olive hue as it interacts with the aquq blue ground...


and a close-up


Third session
Latest one...
More shading and naples yellow added for hi-lights...


Some close-ups...




Well, that is all, cherished visitors!
Thanks so much for poppin by!
More surprises in store
so keep them peepers peeled
like seagoat!

I really enjoyed seeing the photo of you painting. When you are "down to work" you look very handsome. That photo shows your serious side. Concentrating to produce wonderful tiki art. It's a perfect day when you post here. I enjoy your poetic comments too. Wendy

Dont sell yourself short LLT. After studying Picasso myself and discovering the design elements that he incorporates into his work, I can spot the same elements being used in other peoples work from time to time. While you have a style all your own, I see some of those same elements buried in your work. It's cool to see, hense the reference.
If it's intentional, I praise you for your scholarship. If its unintentional, then your either channeling Picasso or he's taken possession of your body...either way keep painting until you physically can't do it anymore...then seek an exorcist.

Your work is always interesting and fun too look at. Love the Tiki Farm stacking bowls.

Hello Dear friends and Ohana!
How Ah Ya?
Well... Been working on a LOT lately!
a commission for a logo (i rarely take commissions,but this one wasn't too much work...)
Also,last minute mug stuff (box labels,etc) glaze approvals...
and paintings for the Nov. Tiki Farm 15 year Anniversary Exhibition!
and,of course...
the 4-day work week..
it does get taxing,
but weariness is just a sign
that a lot of good stuff is getting done!

Let me reply to some friends
and then we'll get cracking
on catching y'alls up with
some of the exciting things and
special moments that have been kind enough to circle the studio...

Why thank you Wendy!i think our true selves bubble up when immersed in the act of producing art...it just kinda slips out of it's own accord and guides the piece... i imagine that's when we all look our best...You are just the sweetest art sister anyone could have!

Aloha RVictor! and thank you again for your insightful posts...
Being an artist first
and Tiki artist second
I have always had a love for Artists and Art history
spanning across All Cultures and Time Periods..
Bruegel,Blake,Bosch,Durer,Hokusai,Thomas hart Benton,Diego Rivera,Dali,Picasso,jack Kirby...
These and many more i have admired and delved into their work,lives,and times...
Each one has certain narratives,certain underlying messages/opinions,and special symbols that act as a strange cast of characters to each artist's work...
The more an artist of today can learn and expand upon any of these masters
the more likely that Fine Art will survive and retain some of the roots that made it great
Unlike the jumbled branding and celebrity spotlight spectacle that high art has become today.
So yes...Sir... Picasso dared and took chances...not many artists do that..have the confidence for that...wish to gamble with their audience/popularity...but THAT is where the truly exciting and surprising stuff is born!And while there are many artists who achieve great works and stay within a comfortable realm,Picasso is king of just going for it...
Creativity is a gift every time it visits..it is the artist's duty to do their research,keep up practice ,and to always try new things that inspiration lays before them...
Mahalo for the visit and I'm happy that they provide an enjoyable interesting experience!



Well, it's BECAUSE of this upcoming exhibition that i am able to share a thing of
Absolute beauty with you all...

Here is the story of how a painting frame is born!

Well, "Too Much Information" the 24 x 36" showcase piece for my offerings to the exhibit
needed a frame that would compliment and elevate this masterwork...


Step One...
sketch out some motifs...




Arrange them in a few configurations...



Well, after sending these to Monkeyman Derek Weaver
and allowing him ample breathing room to follow HIS creative voice
He melded our two aesthetics and ....
MAGIC was MADE!
Here is a closeup tour of his Breathtaking frame for this piece...


First off, notice how he captured the Ruzic Wonkiness with a frame that is NOT
a straight edged member of the frame community
but an assembled and
slightly jumbled collection
of what appears to be
wooden blocks carved with tapa-ish elements...


Derek used both router and chisel to translate this into reality...
He nailed that skull!


And his care and attention to this simple landscape just made my eyes GLOW!


Another great detail he carried from the studies
were the wood distressing and cracks that i like to use...
you can see these on both the seahorse and the tribal mark next to the landscape....


Here's a close-up of the Seahorse...


Such Texture! He added some stitching to the drum
which resembled a root beer float until the addition...
Good Call!


Here's a FISH!


Some more Masterful Texture!


Here's a close-up of the coconut mug.
Please notice the clever way Derek carved this...
it's tri-level!


Some flowers,tapa markings,and a signature Maori face...


Again,notice the weathered wood markings...Perfect!


It's amazing the amount of detail and texture crammed into each area...
and man! Running one's hand along it
is like a smooth chocolate creamy tapa braille...
mmmmm...


What's a frame without a modernist Pineapple?


Lil PNG face and another fishy!


This is a good picture to appreciate the "stacked" look of the frame areas...


and we end our around-the-frame tour with a sun,
a gorgeous leaf
and a cleverly executed starfish...

See? i told you it was STUNNING!!!
Well...as each piece for this show becomes more completed
i have to start showing details
until RIGHT BEFORE the exhibit...

So here are a few of the areas and progress made
on the "Too Much Information" piece...

a Detail of the table top
with PiNGo looking up in surprise at the Information being revealed...


This clever Moai on the foreground bowl
gives us the "A-OK" sign concerning said confession being overheard...


The Kolohe/Crybaby mug got a bit more attention this weekend...


Worked on some of the lighting from the colored fish floats...


and enhanced this croc/bird sculpture on a high shelf...


Here's a detail of the lamp so far...

Now... one of the requirements of this exhibit
is to include our TikiFarm 15 year anniversary mugs
in the painting....

So, here is my "Poko-Ono" mug/shotglass
looking pretty good so far
in the Open Line glaze colorway of this design...


More details and actual photos SOON!
I believe it's due for release in November...


Well... there's more to share,
but I'm gonna hold back
and just let all of this soak in....

Thank you for the visits and comments
They always bring tropical warmth to the studio
and my heart...

Aloha Tiki Peeps!
Well, it's been awhile
as i've been prepping for the BIG MONDO TIKI exhibition
in celebration of Tiki Farm's 15th year,as of late...
My Fellow Behemoth/Titan/Gargantuas are also cooking up some goodies!
Over 30 pieces between us to adorn the walls!
And BooBen is constructing the environment for the exhibit!
JOY!!!!!


Got to work on some wood-burning at the last Don's International Tiki Marketplace
Got a lot of progress done,and got to teach a bunch of folks (big and little) the beauty of pyrography...Does it gt any better?
Well...it MAY GET BETTER because i will be wood-burning AGAIN in December at Don's!



Well, before we go exploring
Let's answer some of the nice comments y'alls left..

Hey Tikiskip!Many mahalos! Well, it was quite a fun and easy collaboration...Derek has a great ability to translate a piece of art to wood,thinking of it in 3-dimensional terms...
i just sent him the sketches and let him do what he had to do,not interrupting his creative path to make the bestest frame around,and as you saw,the results were Over-the-Top! Unfortunately,we can't reveal the final pieces until the show is up and ready for ogling...but believe you me...Doug,and Tommy,and myself have slaved over these to bring the Very Best to the walls of laLuz and to bring suitable respect to Tiki Farm during their 15 year anniversary exhibit.... Soon,Skip,soon.....

Sorry about the headache,Woody! Collabs are the BEST!


So...for today, i will take you thru the steps concerning how a Pyrographical work
is created....
Birch and basswood are the most suitable woods for my Colwood wood-burner
an extra hot tip is required so the pen can move as fast as the artist's hand..
Starting with a 12 x 36" piece of wood,let us begin our journey here....

Sketching lightly in pencil,i establish the flow of the waterfall..
NOTE: use only light lead pencils-DO NOT use wax colored pencils-they will gum up your tip!
Here is a whole shot of session ONE-sketching and some burning started...


and here's some close-ups...
This part of the pyrography is mostly just to get the outlines and shapes of the objects....
the huts
the water
the vegetation...

The great part of this phase is that one can compare the already finished areas
with the pencil sketches...Do not be afraid to edit the pencil sketch.....THAT is how a piece Evolves!YOU WILL SEE THAT IN ACTION LATER
when i drop one hut and decide to go ALL OUT on the Bridge!




Here's the middle area,where the bridge will be placed...
unbeknowest to this artist.....


Here it is,with the top of the piece revealed in relation to that area...


Here is the Hut on the small island in the middle...


and some more details from this first session...






SECOND SESSION/DAY TWO
Got a lil bit more wood burnt...














SESSION THREE/Day Three

Almost everything
except the middle "Bridge" area...
the bridge would be too small with that extra hut
so a lil bit of thinkin could come in handy.....
We'll review the Sketchbook musings in a minute....










Session Four/Day Four
Time for tinting! Decided to break out the brush and begin the lighting and shading
on this piece....after adding some of the rushing water
the bridge can wait....for now....


Here's some of the close-ups...Note-the pencil is erased BEFORE tinting with the Burnt umber...that way,the under drawing is hidden,and the believability of the world pictured is re-inforced...










Session Five/Day Five
First,we'll try and figure out the Bridge..
the sketched one is small and not worthy of note....
If this piece is to be titled after a bridge-it better earn it!

First off,Let me share the original sketch for this piece
Along with stylized vegetation,derived from many sources...
old sketchbooks,Balinese Paintings and Turkish miniatures.




Arched Bridge or Suspension bridge?


Some quick Croc Bridge studies and the vision is beheld!




Decided to woodburn this LIVE at Don's
during their International Tiki Marketplace
What a Blast!
Here is what i accomplished that day....






and here's the BRIDGE!




Session Six/Day Six
Time to tint the WATER!


























Session Seven/Day Seven
Tinting the Vegetation!


i used only two olives for the greenery,a brown,a light gold,and the turquoise
Also the Burnt umber for shading... i allowed the ground color of the wood to peek thru...




















AND ,After one more session,it is finished....
While i can't show the piece in entirety yet..
i CAN show details..
So here they are!






And here is an extreme close-up just for you!



Well, that's all i have the energy to share today...
i hope you enjoyed all the close-ups and a chance to hike around this
pyrographical Wonder!

Thanks for the visit and wonderful comments!
Aloha!
