Let's see what happens when we ask Uncle Toesy to deface some innocent thrift store paint-by-number piece for Pappy Haggler's.



Sorry I don't have a before shot but trust me, it wasn't ANYTHING like this molested version. Not for sale. I bought it!!!!

Thanks Mr Toe!!!!!!!!

This painting is f'kin classic, man!

I laughed out loud when I saw this up-close in-person at TO.

I told Dave how jealous I was that HE had it in his possession.

I expressed to BigT that he captured (in my mind) the essence of my favorite goony art of my 60s childhood.

A future holy-grail after we're all dead and buried. God Bless all artists!

I think "Last Rezort" does the job just fine. I was thinking of, "The Perils of Bar Food", but that's not so good.

Very nice piece, I dig the eyes over the sign.

For anyone interested, here's the story behind the painting:

This work was inspired by the Moai Kava Kava that we all saw at the forest lawn tiki art show. Our scene opens with our protagonist(s?) tending bar at the very exclusive (and perhaps elusive) Last Rezort Tiki Bar. And as you can see the 2 heads are at odds with each other tonight.

Kava-one casts an irascible eye towards his jovial janus as he earnestly prepares a secret cocktail for a contentedly inebriated fruit bat (and is he pouring into a Bigtoe Leno tiki mug that may be purchased at tikifarm.com?). It seems Kava-one is expecting Kava-two to add a splash from that mysterious red crucible.

Meanwhile, Kava-two is driven to distraction by the opportunity to tease a pretty (and thankfully scantily-clad) hula girl with the shrunken (but seemly occular?) head of a recently-deceased associate.

How will this little drama play out?

You and your guests can spend many an entertaining idle contemplating the outcome in your very own den of iniquity! Will the evening end in fisticuffs? an amorous 3-way tryst? Perhaps even a more violent end at the hand (or ragged claw) of indiscernible jungle denizens with paley-glowing eyes.

TC price is $2000.

Finally shot it last night. this shot is a bit too 'warm' (orange) if you are seriously interested and would like to see a better shot, please PM me.

MAhalos for looking!

Uncle Toesy
