Thanks hewey! Hey bowling shirts.... I'm really into that good old bowling genre. Not a bad idea! I checked them a while back - some are pricey and some not so much... Maybe I'll see how the t-shirts do first. Thanks again!

I always dig going through and checking out all your paintings in your thread. So much talent, it's crazy, man!! Great new pieces sam!

does the second painting have any link to the band the tiki tones? Just curious.

This looks like Bob Hope's daughter with a hot bod and a ski jump nose.

The DVA piece is pretty sign-alishus an' tiki-tastic Sam-enam-Gam.

Damn Sam Gam!
That Sun Records piece is great! How do you keep your hand so steady? Do you work on these on a table or easel? I'm just trying to figure out how you can get so many great blends as well as crisp lines with this enamel! Crazy! You ever paint a part then realize your elbow is smearing some other area? Pobably not! You're a freakin Pro! Thanks for the inspiration and motivation!

Great idea! That would be extremely cool! I want a jacket customize by you! Is not that I can afford it but dreaming is for free you know... Some Sam patches maybe

Thanks so much for the kind words....

Hey Polynesiac- I wasn't thinking at all about the band when I painted it, but I guess it's kind of a good coincidence! I just liked the way it rolled off the tongue...

Hey Sneakytiki- You should see the tiki face I was going to use - my wife said it didn't look "tiki" enough. I was going for a game show host type of tiki head, but he looked a lot like Bob Hope/Wink Martindale with a square tiki head. I did leave a little Bob Hope in this guy, so you are right! Grog added the hot bod. I'm waiting for him to "Grog" these new paintings with a little bit of femininity.... I've come to expect it! Where are you Grog?????

Thanks little lost tiki! How did you know about the elbow?? It happens all the time. I end up finding paint on my elbow after I think I've cleaned up. I paint these on my workbench lying flat. I had an easel but got rid of it because my paintings are never larger than 16x20 and the easel was way too big. I'm used to the boards or canvas lying flat anyhow.

Thanks too, Clarita- Hey, patches are a good idea too! I have thought about painting up a leather coat with enamel. I appreciate the very kind words!

Thanks, CutThroat. No, I don't stencil anything - I just refuse any coffee before I paint!

WOOP!
Hey Sam - just opened my print of the Sandy Warner painting a few moments ago and it's f#@%!in' gorgeous! In fact, it's too good to do what I originally had in mind and now I have to sweat out thinking up a better frame design.
(and a helluva start for breaking out of my winter hibernation and gettin' my arse back into the realm of tiki, too)
Thanks!

PS - any Yma Sumac ideas floating around for the future?

Hey Sam!
Just got my Easter Island print from ya! Thanks! It's such a difference seeing the
smaller digitized version on the computer,then BAMMO! seeing the actual size
and impact in real life! Very Cool! Beautiful painting! Looking at it ,you get that
feeling that you're with REAL ART! Goosebumps!
Enamel on canvas...you probably had a blast with all the texture,
as opposed to the smooth surfaces you usually work on...
Thanks again! Any more werewolves being painted up?

Hi Twitch and Ken-

Thanks so much for the kind words about the prints! I hope you enjoy them. I'm glad that they finally got to you. The mail seems to be taking longer and longer lately...

Twitch- Yma Sumac is excellent subject matter! She'd make a great painting. I just have to catch up so I can work on all of these ideas I've been writing down.

Hey Ken- No werewolf paintings yet, as the commissions have been stacked up - mostly digital stuff for businesses lately. I'm dying to get back into the paint though. I have more Ed Roth and Munster commission paintings to do before I get back into the other fun stuff!
