#9 posing next to, two paintings by my mother Alice
I love love love her mind, style, energy, soul, personality, etc. she is such a wonderful and inspiring person (drool), that I wanted to share some of her magic here with you
We are slowly taking pictures of all her art to open a facebook soon. Hope you enjoy the family combo.

I'm a little down lately, a lot of bad news, but I still believe in art, friends, and the magic that can come for those things, honestly that's all life is about for me... so I want to thank all the people around here that make me smile so often with their support and wonderful art, much much Aloha to you all.

Beautiful Clarita! I love the stained vs unstained areas. Beautiful art by your mother too, I guess it runs in the family. Keep smiling Little Clara, I hope things get better for you

NO! No more bad news for Clarita. There. I just declared it. Wishing much good mana your way...well, MORE than my usual!
Great new piece, it looks like Daddy o' Grande, from the Los Straightjackets! It's funny, I just carved a piece recently (didn't post), that came out looking like him too! That's kinda cool!!
We see where you get your artistic talents from now. My mom's a painter too...can't get her to paint anything tiki though!!
Good to hear from ya

Thank you very much dear Tiki friends,from Alice too

Atomic Tiki Punk thank you very much!

MadDogMike thank you you are an artist because you create (i know you don't believe that, but I do), I love to watch your experiments.

congatiki thankyou very much, and thanks for making your wonderful art.

Benzart thank you so much, love you and your art, thanks for making it, and thanks for being so warm, big hug to you and yours.

surfintiki thanks, you are very nice, do you think this one looks like Danny,really? ha. well that's one of the a lot of bad news around this year, I don't know if you heard but he just found out he has bone cancer, he has played here with my friends the tormentos this last like 3 years and he manage to make a lot of friends, a lot of people love him here, and we are all sad about the news. maybe I'll post this guy for him to see
I can't get my mom the paint anything tiki either, this two are the most warm or exotic, that's why I chose them.thanks for your kindness.

little lost tiki thank you very much tiki brother, life gives me sweet flowers, but is crushing a lot of people around, and that's not good enough for me, it had make me enter in a panic state, I know that's not good, so I'm trying to get back to my more hopeful look at things, even it's getting harder to ignore all the bad... you know when you think what's the point to make art when everything goes wrong around.. well this is the point, to have or invent a point, because otherwise life can get to superficial or to scary... if you know what I mean.. so thanks for appreciating what I do and even more thanks for being such an inspiring and generous person

I love my Tiki friends I know is weird to think you can really connect trhu the internet with people you don't know, but I do feel the connection and I'm thankful for it, much Aloha to you guys

A man sees a gorilla on his roof, so he calls the "Gorilla Removers". The gorilla remover arrives, and gets out of his van. He's got a ladder, a baseball bat, a shotgun and a mean old pit bull. What are you going to do?" the homeowner asks. I'm going to go up there and knock the gorilla off the roof with this baseball bat. When the gorilla falls off, the pit bull is trained to grab his testicles and not let go. The gorilla will then be subdued enough for me to put him in the cage in the back of the van." As he gets to the base of the ladder, he hands the shotgun to the homeowner. What's the shotgun for? asks the homeowner. If the gorilla knocks me off the roof, shoot the dog

Hey Clarita, your last one seem like to wear a mask "lucha libre". Excelent! I see that the talent was already in your family, I'm not surprised ...
