Halloo Fellow Art lovers!
Brad,
It's Five Waterfalls! Don't you have a Puppy to Paint?
I won't stop making art if you don't stop painting PUPPIES!
JenTiki!
Thank you Sweetie! We share a mutual love for waterfalls! They're so relaxing to watch! I hope you're not expecting two naked Birdmen dancing around the fire at Kirby's TongaHut/TC night Birthday Bash! Maybe GROG in a Loincloth,tho!
SneakyTiki!
Glad you like the adjustments! Those clouds were just TOO MUCH! You know that feeling,being a fine artist and all! You're also familiar with the feeling of a GOOD SAVE! in a painting! I feel losing those clouds was a GOOD SAVE!The Rapa Nui/Orongo/Tangata Manu Fever is spreading! I expect it to outshine Jazzercize by a country mile! Thanks for the encouragement! By the way...What's up with that tree painting? Hilarious man! Not as cultured and educated as your other works, but it made me smile! Thanks for diggin the Custom Mug! i think i'll do a set of three like that! Very Meso-American/yet a little bit Chinese, especially the faces, which remind me of early Chinese Bronzes! Plus the whole retro Black and Gold ashtray vibe nailed it for me! Mahalos! keep painting!
Hip!
Glad you like the Rev piece! I could those Sad Sack moais as mugs as well! Wishes do come true,so you never know!
VampiressRN,
Thank you darling!I decided to derive those star comets from old school Middle Ages images of Comets-it seems to be working so far....fingers crossed!
Dawn!
Hopefully this thread is spreading some groove out and about!You are the Honorable One! I'm just a stoner with a dayjob and an obsession with ART! I'm humbled before all the talent in
Creating Tiki! It's like the KISS Army!
Well folksies!
I finished "Land of the (FIVE!) Waterfalls, so here are a few quickie shots before i disappear back into the studio.....
Here's the Whole Kadoodle! Note: the true color is somewhere betwixt this shot and the tones of the close-ups! Sue me!

This piece was another completely by brush! Not as fast as the acrylic/paintpen approach, but there's something cool and different about this style too!

Here's an ultra close-up, so ya can see the brushstrokes!


That's it for now! I may do some highlights and stuff soon, so maybe I'll post those! Thanks fer visiting!

Ahhhh! Waterfalls! I'm with Brad ... it kinda looks like there're almost six.
And yes, I'm expecting naked (bird)men dancing around a fire at the TC night/Kirby's birthday thing at the Tonga Hut. I vote for you and Squid!

I think this is my new favourite painting of yours - so much life and animation! I just wanna jump in there and start partying with these guys! Other than the munktiki orongo mug and Benz's use of them on his moai, I've seen very few tiki artists using the birdman motif. It's really interesting seeing the way everyone here interprets the Rapa Nui style in their own way.
I also agree that we need to see some LLT moai or birdman mugs in the pipeline!

Dude you crazy! A lot of nice new stuff, but so much detail. My head hurts. Have you been on the flue drugs with TSA?

...Men your paintings do a relaxing effect on me like looking at the see...but with a fun ingredient ... I need one... What can I do... I'm at the end of the world almost... so far...What happened with Land of Pele? If I may ask...
Greetings! keep up your excellent work!!!

Howdy Folkaroonies!
well, I should be packing for Vegas (trade show) but decided to post a few of the weekend's delights...
Jen,
Thanks my dear! It seems you and Brad either can't count or possibly need to get your eyes checked! i sees Five! Squid and Kirby have volunteered to perform at least part one of Orongo Lake....
Paipo,
my man! You're tops in my book! Seems you caught the Rapa Nui fever as well It's great seeing what everyone has been coming up with here on TC! From robots to Moai to Tangata Manu,with so many great and creative peeps.it's always a surprise to see how you all interpret different subjects! I agree with you! Mugs would be fun with these guys-send your petitions to Holden...You need about 100 signatures before it's even considered, so get crackin!
Hewey,
I bow before your grand membership! Your head hurts? Try some robitussin with a tylenol and post your fever-dream drawings for us! I'm sorry I even turned Brad on to the red demon of a cough syrup! I hear he went on a Binge and is now holed up in the City of Refuge with nothing coverin up his nekkidness but a paint pallette! Poor guy! I'm taking up a collection(cash only) so we can get him the help he needs! (large bills only-make all checks payable to LLT Enterprises)
Hey Clarita
extraordinaire Candle Maker! I'm glad these relax you! They're relaxing to me after they're done! Pompele/Land of Pele is up at the studio for now and will be on display at the TikiFarm Parking Lot Sale at my booth! I'm glad you like it!!!
Well, I gotta lotta work to do before tomorrow comes around so here's some pix, then mom says I gotta go! Well, last posting I lied-I didn't have "Land of the waterfalls" finished! It needed some lighting..Again I apologize for deceiving you all... Here it is! TOTALLY DONE!

As you can see from the previous post, the lighting gave it all that little OOMPH! that qualifies it into the "LLT GOOD PILE" as opposed to the "LLT BAD PILE"...Here's some close-ups! Don't get wet!




I also finished a piece for my wife for Valentine's Day! It is entitled "the Queen Sisters" and they're from that kid's book I hope to finish when I'm 80!

I also worked on a bit more of a Happy Hut piece that has been neglected for about a year....

One good evening and this will be done! I'm also sketching out a long horizontal "Battle of the Fish" for that series-but no pix yet! Well, I'll talk to you all when I get back! I really gotta go! And momma's a hollerin and if I don't go now she'll tan my hide!!!!!Thanks for popping by! Aloha!

Nice additions to the waterfalls, don't hurt me but I count 7, lol. The queen chicas are really weird and fun. The last piece is painted on what? It looks like u could get lost picking out all the detils in it, trippy cool.

Aloha Kiddies!
Sorry for the delay,but sometimes life (and donuts....that's a Tonga Hut thread joke...) throws a bunch of anti-art stuff atcha! Survived Vegas last week and the tees did better than expected, so I guess we're doing something right....
SamGam,
Thanks man! I get the same giggly kinda feeling seeing your work!
SneakyTiki,
It's FIVE waterfalls...but if you buy the painting, I'll let you tell everyone it's seven! And the Happy Hut piece is painted on a big round canvas that has edges that bevel,not the straight down usual canvas...it's special! (My momma calls me Special!)
Hewey,
Your brain hurts? No Pain No Gain! The more you exercise it, the less it hurts!
Well, besides painting Soccertiki's mug and finishing the sides of "the Land of Pele" with a rattan/woven bamboo vibe (which are both time-consuming and detail-oriented) I decided to create some kind of print of the 3 mug faces in preparation for their April release! I plan on getting a real good scan of this and making some affordable prints on paper for the TikiFarm Parking lot Sale...here's what I came up with!

Decided to make them all the same proportion 'cause it looked awkward with one too skinny and one too fat...., These will make a fine addition displayed near your 3 mugs...The prints should be ready by the Tiki Farm Parking Lot Sale in April!
Well, needing to have a bunch of art for you all to buy, i have started on some little paintings on wood to vend there... Here's a Sneak preview of some of them i finished this last week...

Here's a funny smashed face green Tiki face...

and finally a little blue tiki flanked by a flame motif...it seemed like a good idea at the time!

That's it for now! I got asked to be in a Group Show at the brand new Costa Mesa gallery "the Pinch" next Saturday night...I'll be displaying "the land of Pele" and "the Night Parade" Representing Tiki in the OC! along with 3 other paintings which delve more into the religion/conspiracy/political vibe of other artistic "phases"...
here's the two tiki ones...in case you fergat!


That's it for now chillen! I gotta purdy myself up for Kirby's Birthday at the Tonga Hut tonight!!!

Hey Ken,

Thanks so much for the tour of "the cave" yesterday! The shear quantity of amazing art was well beyond what I could have imagined, and the fine details that I never noticed when looking at the photos here were such a joy to discover! It was also fun to see some of the non-tiki art you've created! My friend is thrilled with the piece I bought for him, and you know how much I love the piece I took home for me! It was such fun watching you create the "smashed face green tiki" you posted above, and seeing the artwork for the mug print in person, even before Holden! Thank you for being such a gracious host! I look forward to my next visit someday to see what new fun places and characters you've created in the meantime!

Thanks again! I look forward to seeing you and the gang at the Tonga Hut tonight!



P.S. - I don't know what WooHoo was smoking on the day she visited, but I don't think immaculate is a word I would use to describe the state of the studio. Tidy, maybe, but immaculate? Um, no!

Looking at that tiki print for the three Tiki FArm mugs, I would have never thought that those could have been done 3D. Expect for the fact that I've seen it happen.
