Thanks Wendy!
i had to tolerate a whole day vending with GROG teasing me about orange and green colorways... I guess it's not the colors,but what you do with em!
When a painting calls for pink-i obey...When it asks for olive-i grab the olive...

and now........Here it is!
the twins!
The veil of secrecy has been lifted and they are now a part of the
clamshell roofed Mermaid bar at Mojave Oasis!
(if anyone has a good shot of these in situ,i would love to see them!)

soooooo,without further adieu....

"Land of the Mermaids (Angelfish)
3x4'

"Land of the Mermaids (Seahorse)
3x4'
acrylic and cel-vinyl on gessoed wood


Thank you Amy,for letting these humble offerings share occupancy with so much stunning art and handiwork! i am moved and honored to have been able to add to that Incredible weekend!

i may be doing a limited edition print of each
25 of each,signed and numbered...but i'm still on the fence about it..
we'll see....

Anyways friends,Thank you all for your encouragement and kindness and patience
during the sneak-peek phase of this project!

and if you can make it out to Mojave Oasis sometime,give my twins a lil hug and smile!

Did I hear the word "prints"? Kinny you know I'd be in for that if you went ahead with some.

Loving the new works.

Mahalo TrailerPark Tiki!
I felt the same about the Mermaid lounge....especially at night! MAGIC!

Aloha Chris!-Yes,you heard correctly...
Been getting a lot of inquiries about prints...
As much as i like my friends to have originals,i can't paint epic pieces all the time
so prints will have to do,but i promise to keep them limited
Makes them more of a special thing,and keeps me from drowning in inventory!

Give me a few weeks to decompress and i will announce them when they're ready!

Thank you both and to all of you who visit this thread and keep me smiling with your kindness and encouragement!
in the meantime ....
Here's how the twins look on the ceiling of the Mermaid Lounge at Mojave Oasis!
(Now i am proudly in TWO Bamboo Ben built bars! This one and Frankies! What a Blessing!it's makin me GIDDY!!!!!!!!!!)


g'night!

They hung them on the ceiling so GROG couldn't whiz on them.

They do however need two individual spots on them, to make them pop out more at night. Their eye-popping detail deserves it!

Aloha Sven!
So wonderful to be able to visit and lounge with you and Naomi at Mojave Oasis!
How funny was Dawn's chickenleg marinade for her drink?!?!?
Ray and i were discussing that very thing on Sunday morning
and we both agreed that too much lighting there would detract from all the
other wonderful treasures in the mermaid lounge....
It's kind of one of those landmarks that you have to seek out a bit
for isn'tthe longer journey
the one more filled with discovery and reward?
Once i can get prints of these two,it'll give folks the option to harshlight em all they want!
Thank you again,as always, for your knowledge,kindness,and encouragement!

Tobor64-Thank you so much!Glad they added to the magic that was Mojave Oasis!
I'm very pleased that i could give Amy and her Paradise a lasting bit of my soul and heart
to share with others and to help amplify their buzzes!

and here's a NEW DRAWING!
"the SkullStick Shaker"
ink and pastel pencil on Aquarelle watercolor paper)
from a "Frantic Dancers" series i return to on occasion ...


Aloha!

Kinny you are filled with so much creativity that I worry you would explode if you ever stopped painting for a moment. So keep it up and inspire us and add to our enjoyment of life through your art. Wendy
