Thanks Hewey, Thanks Sneakytiki, and THANKS Kirby. (I love the tiki pendent, I'm wearing it while I paint to get inspired!) It's a great boon to hear supportive tiki talk like this!

If any of you "prodders don't show up at Brad's show (with the exception of Hewey) I will track you down and give you such a smeckin'! Seeing these pieces in person will be such a treat. The #4 looked soooooooooo great in person at the Spooky Luau(despite being so high up on the wall!)TCers get your bootys down to Brad's on Sunday! Such a great artist and guy needs a proper send off before he moves to Hawaii!
Hey GROG!
Bring the rest of the paddle payment to Brad's show so I can buy a print!

I can't believe you left your easel just to log onto TC to type "painting, painting, painting"! Sheesh! Congrats on selling # 3!!! The first of many sales I predict!!! GROG said he'd buy whatever you didn't sell at the show on Sunday! But, as you see below,he is seeking help for a few mental disorders.....

Enough arteest ass-kissin' already. The more important issue: Is the booze free on Sunday?

Sincerely (really)
Your Pal,
squid

PS: If it is free, Let's tell Ruzic it's $5.00 per drink. Please pay Miles. We'll all divy up in the back yard afterward.

HEy Ruzic,

GROG watched a TV show the other day called "Heroes" and one of the characters on the show shot up drugs and then knocked out these amazing paintings while he was stoned and it made GROG think of you. The only difference is he was on heroine instead of CRACK!!!

Sorry we derailed your thread Brad (damned Ruzic), but we know you're busy painting and getting ready for the show, so we gotta do something to keep us entertained until Sunday. It goes faster if you find all the numbers of one color and fill them all in at one time. The book of your art should be titled, "Painting By-The-Numbers by Brad Parker".

Maybe GROG needs some CRACK so he will produce more than ONE piece of art a year! The only crack i got is the one showing when people watch me from behind while I'm painting! What is it about my truck that makes people want to pee?
So, all you TCers,come to Brad's Show on Sunday.Besides all the great paintings, GROG will be doing some performance art outside entitled "Rhapsody in Gold" Indubitably!

Hey TC, thanks for all the support, and stuff!
Wow, I got a reply from Kooche! NIFTY! Thank you, I LOVE yer stuff. I got all kinds of questions to ask you about your work, but I'll do that when I have some time... like after my show. Hey Ken, ya know in some tiki-cultures of the pacific pee-ing on someone's truck is a sign of friendship. (still, I'm gonna park BLOCKS away during the show.) So, Mama Tiki Shark (i.e. my mom) called and told me water was pouring down the kitchen walls in the apartment (yes, my mom lives with me. Hey, it's a tax break!) and the front room. All the paintings were in the apartment! Big freak out followed. So long story short, they are all ruined and the show is off! (just kidding!) No, mama tiki shark got her butt in gear and was a real trooper in hauling all the art to safety! (what a gal!) But, the whole disaster ate into valuable painting time!
Here's the 7th painting in it's slow and pitiful progress...

The sketch

sketched on the canvas

the first try, colors looked wrong...

as it is now.
It's an idea that Hewey gave me. A tiki fishing and catching a puffer fish light! Like there are puffer fish that come out of th sea like that! Cool huh!
AND,
(to make Squid Happy) Free booze at the art show. So yeah, there'll be wine. But I wanted something for my TC Ohana, so I figure I'd do a punch bowl filled with pucnh... and coconut rum. That sound right? Any suggestions?
back to painting...
Thanks again for looking at da art! U all R da best!

Hey Brad!
Don't paint over those colors! Simply rethink the rest of the colors-the ones that will compliment those already applied.Whenever you lay one color upon another a little bit of that color (let's call it the "spirit" of that color remains) Plus, you ain't got time! You gotta finish this puppy up! The clock is ticking! There are no bad colors,as long as the colors around them make sense. You've proven you gots a great instinct for this-so trust it! Just relax, sit down, look thru some art/design/Hawaiana books and take note (when you see the colors in your painting )of the colors other artists have used. Being artists, there is a history we all share,and not enough of us realize that we're here to help each other,and shouldn't be afraid of letting those who have gone before help us in times of need! Gman says "the saw is family", well, that also applies to us painters...."the brush is family"! (the above applies to all artists except GROG and Kirby-the pee-pee twins)
