Ken, no need to respone yet, enjoy that 500 but am I seeing new Birdmen added to your last post. Cool, looks like you could just keep going and going with them.

The clouds in the Moai painting are the best. Tons of work there.

Aloha Crew!
Well, after seeing Brad's painting I've decided to abandon art! Just kidding! If you haven't checked it out yet-GO NOW TO THE TIKI SHARK POST! It's out of control! Even without the bubbles....Actually.gives me a point to strive for! Anyways, not much done on the REV6:13 Moai piece.In fact, a lot of the day on Friday was getting rid of about 2/3 of the clouds in the sky-too cluttered! Also, I had to finish Biff's custom mug!
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=20932&forum=12&start=75
I'll post the absolutely finished pix later this week!
But I have a few goodies to share,all sketchbook entries of what I started last night...
an Orongo village! But first let's chat!
Jentiki,
Hello Sweetie!
I'm glad you like "the Greeting"! Mahalos! That gold and the Ronrorongo glyphs really threw it into the limited depth I needed for it ,and the gold just makes it Zing! Can't wait for you to see the revised clouds-more effective and foreboding without the clutter! I dig the fruit basket too!
Hello Benz!
Thank you!
Always an honor when come to visit! I have the same problem as you! I'd like to spend more time in carving! So much great work,as I'm sure you'll agree! Don't kick yourself! We need you in one piece!Glad you like the Birdmen, and the Ancient One is a personal fave of mine! That painting sold 10 minutes before my one-man show opened! BAM! Love it when a patron sees and wants! I love the Orongo you got going up Mr. Octopus pendant man's back! I can't wait to see more of what your brilliance will bring to life!
Hewey!
I guess "the Greeting" is a hit! Thanks for being such a great chap since my very first posts here!
teaKey,
Hey buddy! All this talk of you being inspired...give it up man! Let's see some more of your crazy handiwork! Sorry about knocking out those clouds you love! Maybe I'll make a clouds only painting someday for ya!
Alrighty!
Here's a curious birdman Jade pendant I found from Costa Rica about 1000 years old... Memories of Lemuria? Mu? Were these cultures trading and interacting? Hmmmm...
How much of our history do we really know?
Well, here's the study of it...

here's something Paipo sent me! Please excuse his peeper! It's art,man!

and now onto the piece started last night...
I wanted to do an Orongo Village,so first I tried a landscape only....

Being too overwhelming, I decided to push down the landscape and concentrate on the Birdmen and their activities....

I'll post pix of the actual started painting after a Friday session! Gotta fly! Work is calling!

Aloha Fellow Tiki Travelers!
Clarita!
Hello dear! Yes, it has been awhile! But at least your tikipatio is looking better than ever! A little bird told me that I may be in a show where your candles will be sold! Can't wait to see them in person! I'm dying to see what the boxes look like!

Benz,
Where is the village? Right behind your eyeballs and right behind your sternum! Mind and heart,that's where everyone's village is! I couldn't even begin to imagine the carved edifices in your private village! Thank you!

Hewey,
...also cool! thanks for razzin Brad about the bubbles!

pdrake,
Sweet Jade Toggle! Teeny man! But what it lacks in size, it gains in personality!

well,I'll start off with the changes I did to the Rev 6:13 piece...
Removed those busy-ass clouds! They was crampin my style!!! A bit overly oppressive! i wanted a buildup of tension, not the freakin calvary charging over the hill,sooooooooo...

That's all you get from this one for now!!!! BECAUSE.....
I finished my Orongo Village piece yesterday (except for something special I've saved for the edges) and I'd like to share it with you! It's about 2x4' (this is not my week for measurements and dimensions....) and it's a piece of wood from a dresser drawer I cannibalized... I mixed gouache with the gesso, laid it down,let it dry, then painted it up lickety split! I used a metallic gold gouache mixed with a naples yellow for the Birdmen, to give them this special magical glow! May I present for your viewing pleasure.... "the Festival"

A lot of the characters from earlier sketches were needing to meet and interact...See if you can recognize any of our old friends! here's some details!!!!





And here some REEEEEEEAL close up details so you can check out the brushstrokes!

Here's so you can see the village in the background...I did the outlines a shade darker so it
would recess into the background and look far away!

and here's one of the lovely tree branches...

This one was pretty fun, and it seems I'm back in the saddle when it comes to brush paintin!
kinda like riding a bike, you just need a couple of sessions and BAMMO! it returns like an old friend! And, always the one to provide a cliffhanger....Here's a STUDY of a piece that I'm about
1/3 finished with already.It too is gouache on canvas and it's called "Land of the Waterfalls"!
It will have 5 Waterfalls and 10 Tikis and should be a lot of fun when it's done!

And in case anyone dare accuse me of being a Lazybones....
here's Biff's customized mug I finished last week...
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=20932&forum=12&start=90&92
and my very first eBay excursion...
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=22780&forum=12&6
Whew! Can I go now? I'm tired! Talk atcha soon! Thank you!

Mr. Ruzic, The Rev. piece looks KILLER without the clouds! The new birdman painting is my new favorite LLT piece, I must have gotten some of your artistic broadcast psychic bird flu, I was painting a South American bird man about the same time you were doing your Rapa Nui's. Unfortunately (for me), yours kick ass over mine,lol!

Nice work on the crazy ass mug too, in the metallic color it kinda references meso american stuff along with the mela/polynesian stuff, WOW! Very original and well done.

Beeeeeutiful! I love the sketch of the old pendant!
Thanks for the kudos, but don't you dare stop making art, where would I get all my inspiration from?
