Hope you are having a good week-end, and a good after-Christmas-vacation. I gotta' Art show tomorrow (Sunday) .. always a tad nervous before an Art Show.

I'm Diggin' my "Diga Diga Doo" Coffee Mug that I get to show off for the first time at da' show.

Dig the Hand painted extra's I'm slapping' on ten Mini-surf boards for The "Spirit of Christmas Past" Art Show. -
Once in a while you getta' go way "Low-Brow" and "Kitschy" and pull out da' Glitter for a piece like the "Moon of Manakoora"!

…and I'll show off a full size Giclee on Canvas of my most recent painting (original is SOLD)

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

A really great show tonight in Kona, at my home town gallery. "The Spirit of Christmas Past" was a huge success. Much better than I was hoping for. Even had some heavy hitter local Art Patrons come in before the doors open to pick out a few choice original pieces - (which is the first time that happened to me at this gallery) - then when we opened, a crowded house all nigh, lots of signing
9even got too sign and doodle on a ukulele someone brought in - another first for me!), lots of photos, and many happy tiki-people. Thank you everyone who came out to the show. Big thanx to the Tiki-Tribe folks who told me how much my art meant to them at certain points in their lives - wow, really an honor to hear stories like that. And, of course, a huge mahalo to the great, wonderful folks who slapped down frog-skins and bought Art. From Calendars to originals, it's nice to have enough of a range of product to get something to match just about everyone's budget. Have 'em leaving the gallery with Tiki-Art in their hands and a smile on their face.

Here's a nice go pro shot of the calm before the storm.
BIG ALOHA!

hang10tiki was at The Tiki's in Oahu yesterday. He posted photos on my thread here and then I saw your photos at the same place on fb. I wish you two had met up. He also went to La Mariana. He is with his wife Janelle. I really enjoy everyone's photos so much. Between fb and Tiki Central there's something fun every day. One other note: it was fun to see your photo minus the sun glasses. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, so sorry to have missed out!
I was on Oahu 1 day only. 4 business meetings - whew! But any day in Waikiki is GREAT!
Best part was lunch with local ukulele wonder Aidan James. I got him booked to play at an event I have on the big Island in March.

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Still working on a special re-mark….

Becoming an painting all it's own…

reworking many things that needed it…

This fully painting a giclee gave me an idea for a future art show.

Not in 2016. Too many pieces are already called out a& have requested material.
However, perhaps... if all goes well, and if "La Luz de Jesus Gallery" asks me back yet again. Two years after that I would do 13 more paintings.
But they would be different.
#1 would be a canvas 24" x 30" painted my usual way acrylic , 1 to 2 months.
Then, I'd have it photographed and made into a full sized giclee on canvas.
Then I'd paint on that Giclee for "Tiki Painting #2" for 1 to 2 months.
Then, photograph that and make another giclee on canvas, full size (24" x 30"), and I'd paint on that for 1 to 2 months to become "Tiki Painting #3"
…and so on until 13 Tiki paintings were done…and each would be ever evolving and be a more complex image created step by step, till by the end, 2 full years of work are on one 24" x 30" canvas (printed and painted).
Interesting, huh?
Maybe I'd call it "Thirteen Tikis".

I have to ask The curator of "La Luz" about it.

BUT... first, of course I gotta' paint the 2016 Tiki-Art show…. which I think will include my 5 new Token Tiki toy designs being created for K C Hawaii Inc. - drawings to finished factory made and then hand painted by me, Tiki figurines!

Thanks Kona Kevin… I just think it might have an INSANE amount of detail by the time I get to version 10, like something out of H.P. Lovecraft, you'd loose your grip on reality when you look at Art THAT intense and detailed…. I hope…. Hmmmm just thinking about it...….or it could be a total mess… I dunno… Anyone care to throw out dibs on weather you would buy a Giclee on canvas that was painted on for a couple of months and if you'd feel you bought an original work of art or just a art print with more paint on it….

Is there a stage at this process where an artist' re-marque stops being a remarque and becomes an whole new piece of art?
If so, what is it?

Anyways….Here is a very elaborate remarque of Sea witch... SEA WITCH the remarque or the new version? hmmmmm….
