I'm with you, Brad! I saw this painting up close in LLT's studio last week, and I swear there are six. Just because he didn't put the little splash at the bottom of the sixth doesn't mean there's not water falling there, right? Maybe he could add some bubbles to obscure the sixth one

Hello Everybody!Wow! take your eyes off of TC and try to get some work done and....
What a TC-filled week! Last Friday gave Jentiki a studio tour and trip down to TikiFarm,,,Last Saturday there was Kirby's birthday at the Tonga Hut.....then yesterday, while at the studio,I got visits from TikiBong/WooHoo and Soccertiki/and in the late afternoon TikiRay! Besides all that, I still managed to get 3 small pieces done, and a couple of watercolors for the Parking Lot Show.(Plus got Soccertiki's "Chanting Tikis-enchanted tiki room" Mug all painted up (will post when I get it totally final and get Chris' blessing to post it...)
Well, finally...after working on this derned painting here and there for months on end,it is finished.....May I present for your viewing pleasure...."Revelation 6:13 with Moai"
But first...
Jentiki: Tidy is right! Immaculate? Never?
Hewey: Thank you! I'll keep y'all posted on the print aspect of that one....it should be ready by the 14th of April for Holden's Parking Lot Sale....
TeaKEY: You're right! Without the technical expertise of Holden and the genius of Squid in translating objects from the 2nd Dimension into the 3rd these beautiful creations would have never sprouted to life! Thanks again Sirs!
Clarita: Thanks Girl! I'm so excited your candles are finally going to tour America!!!!
Benzart: Thank you Master Ben!!!People must ask you the same question! Usually people ask how I can keep not only the sanity together, but the day job and marriage as well.....Well, once the sanity is eroded,it's all good!Tired is not an Option!!!
Rev B-Ben: Knowledgeable response my friend! Stated like a true expert!
TikiShark: Five! You and Jen are hereby BANNED from discussing the word "Five" on this post!
Submit to these terms and I will hereby withdraw from mentioning BUBBLES,despite the fact that they are quite abundant underwater.....SHEESH! And don't get me started on Sad-Eye Puppies!

Alright! Alright!
here's the (amateur) shots of "Revelation 6:13 with Moai"

Here's a detail showing the stone texture of the Moai along with some of the water...

Here's part of the sky with the comets barreling down on the earth...I like the reeeeeeeeal small ones in the background....

Here's some palm Tree details to gawk at!

Here's a closeup of the clouds and some of the stars punching through it...

And here's a Ultra-Closeup of the sky with a lil' bit of comet action...

Well, As much as I'd love to stick around and talk story...I gotta get ready for the crowd
at the Pinch gallery premier party in Costa Mesa tonight! I can't wait to see how the crowd reacts to "Pompele"/"the Land of Pele"!!!!! Aloha!

Kia ora Kinny

Another great piece, bravo. Damn man, I didnt even see those little guys until you pointed them out, and now I reeeeeally like them too. Your attention to detail is unparalleled!

How DID the crowd to react to the Epic Pompele? Im sure it was a huge attraction that caused a major traffic jam & thousand smiles! (& Im sure you revelled in it didnt you?) Good on you mate, soak it up; you really do deserve it!

Hello Friends!
Well, the week started off with a BANG! Just finished Soccertiki's commission,a painted up bisque of the (Enchanted Tiki Room's) Chanting Tikis mug by Shag/a Squid sculpt (but of course!) He asked me not to post any pix of it till he gives the word...but it is lookin so smashing i may...may get a wild hair and post it soon! Well anyways, in between the coats of Satin Gloss(much less sparkly than the Hi-Gloss) I've been working a new piece for the parking lot Sale in April...But first....
Kikekeki:
thank you so much! Inspiring Awe is my Hobby!
Marcus:
I'll keep up the good work as long as you do!!! Thanks so much for visiting the other side of the Creating Tiki town!!! Call next time you visit so I can clean the place up a bit!
Squid: if I opened the windows the Inspiration would escape!
Tama:
Hullo old friend!
Sometimes it's those little details that give more scope to the piece...it makes you realize that there's no place to run-no place to hide-that they're falling everywhere....and there's lots of 'em! Pompele got a lot of attention consistently all night,especially later after all the drinks and drugs consumed started kicking in for the patrons! There were a couple of total zoners who really explored every available inch of territory on that canvas! I was too nervous to revel that night! I hate crowds/always feel awkward in them! Plus, I was afraid the zoners would find some overlooked flaw in the piece...a spot where the lighting is wrong,or I forgot to finish a flower or something! AAAAAAAAH! Thanks for making me relive that horrible night....
Brad:
Thank you Sir! The end of the world does have a happy ending...it's just that a lot has got to go down before that happy ending....Socializing does take a lot out of you! The secret is to work while you're socializing! Most of my friends, when they visit the studio,expect me to raise my head up once or twice the whole visit! i've gotten pretty good at holding a conversation AND focusing on the painting at hand!I'm really liking the foreground plants on your new one! The sepia underglaze makes that area look like an old photo! And your palms are really shaping up on that one! Keep the inspiration flowing buddy!
Hewey: Thank you again,fellow arteest! Did TikiRacer get that art i sent him? I never heard from him,then life interrupted my flow,and now I can't remember!!! DUH!!!! PM me with some scoop!
Alright, here's the new piece I've been working on in between the drying coats of Satin Gloss...may i unveil....."Night of the Volcano" in progress!

I did a few tropical landscapes in a style loosely based on Chinese papercuts mixed with pareau print shapes. That's the best way i can describe it!!

i just started laying down the sketch/indigo blackline first,then add more and more color ,sealing it in between colors for that cool glazed look. You can see on the Palms and Huts how I draw over the indigo with the specific details...


I love this guy with the skull eyes!!!! I just wanna make a painting of him alone! Not the chap you'd want to see if abducted by Islanders!

And with a big shot of this guy I'll say Good Night!
i should have this finished in the next few days and will have a bunch more new surprises soon!Thank you all for visiting and being my personal art therapy support group!

LLT: Sorry dude; I know the feeling only too well. You just seem a more flambouyant & robust character than that; I thought you'd be right in your element...

Love this latest posting. The background silhouettes are really Dr Seuss-ish. Like 'em!

Keep doing your thing & perhaps get a bodyguard to keep the adoring (& the zoned...) away?
