Wow, I agree. Nice paintings...I especially like Lunar Activity 1. Eye catching imagery, I like the funky style of the Tikis and animals. I could look at this painting for a long time and keep noticing new things about it. Whoever ended up with it is one lucky individual. Do you sell prints of your work in addition to originals? Just curious. Congratulations on a successful show.

Miles-
Sorry we could not make it, probably a good thing for the checkbook.
The lunar activity peices are incredible. Glad to hear there were 3 wise people who snatched up your paintings, and I am sure it is only a matter of time before the 4th is gone too. We love our originals and I am sure the lucky buyers feel the same way.
People, you better jump in and pick up some kooche art before he blows up and the tiki art disappears.

LOL

don't you mean before i blow myself up? the book signing was a total blast...i sat next to David Burke and we just kept laughing the whole time...making fun of the fact that i kept mis-spelling names all night...at the end of the night i was sitting there with Shag and we were still signing/drawing for the straglers who were still buying up books...i even signed a couple of books that were just Shag books...his idea and it felt weird buti was flattered as hell...

afterwards the Tiki Ti was LO-CO ... the whole night was great! i met sooo many new people and am starting to realize that there is no WAY to remember their names ... just too many tiki fans!

aloha y'all!

Sirginn, I would have buy one of the two bottom but they are already sold. They are the closest to my price range. I love the last ones bright bold colors and the one above has a great tiki to go with the more vintage colors. I need to get a better paying job so I can blow my earnings. I got more time than money right now. Working of my own painting. Watch out. Its coming along good.

Everything good happens in the west. I would have came to the book signing if I lived anywhere is Cali. I would have things to do all the time.

We went to the booksigning/art show event at La Luz last Saturday. Wow, such a lineup of talent all in one room, we were blown away! The paintings that Miles did stole the show in my opinion. Those pieces were incredible in person! Too bad the show is only up through this week. If you're in the area, hurry over and see it before they take it down this weekend.

Thanks Miles for spending time chatting with us and for deliverying some mind altering art. We're definitely expecting to see much more of your work at La Luz (and other galleries of that level) in solo shows in the near future. There is no doubt in my mind that your art will get all the recognition and respect that it deserves. Keep up the great work!

This is just another great example of why we like Tiki Central so much. We've been exposed to so much inspired talent here, and Miles is without question one of our favorites.

Most sincere mahalos,

Rich & Marianne

Kooche, Nice to see more of your art. Wish I could have been there to see you and Shag and everyone else having that blast.
NICE.

Rich and Marianne...

thank you SO much for your encouragement and sincere support...you two are much like the other San Diego collector unit Scott and Christine...i feel that the La Luz book signing/show was more important to me than any other show i've had to date...i collect books and art and most of what i buy i get at La Luz... by moving to strike in such an agressive manner on the painting you decided to buy you made a statement to the gallery...you made it clear to them that people like my images and that they would do well in such a venue...

since the show i have developed an understanding with the gallery and they have offered me an opportunity to show there in 2007 if not sooner...it has made the last 5 years SO worth it to me...i can't thank you enough for being a part of my art...you have helped me achieve something that SO many people want and it's something i won't forget or EVER take for granted...i can't thank you enough!

i'd also like to throw a big THANKS out to anyone that i have met through TC for their encouragement feedback and support...it's been more beneficial to my morale than i can say...i'd be lying if i said i didn't have more than a couple of commissions lined for the beginning of 06 and that is a great feeling!

most humble thanks TC
Miles Thompson

Lunar Activity 1 is my favorite painting by anyone in the past few years. Certainly my favorite that I've seen here on TC. You and your work deserve what you've gotten and more. Please consider doing a full size serigraph of that one (if possible) - I'll buy one for sure. You're kill'in me these days. Can't wait to see what comes next. It sure must feel good.

Very happy for you MIles! For those of you not familiar with La Luz de Jesus gallery, THIS IS A BIG DEAL! There are countless very talented artists out there that greatly aspire to get their own show at this gallery. Why? Because it is commonly accepted as the launching pad for many artist's careers. A show there usually brings incredible public exposure to the work, media attention, and catapults the artist's reputation. All that can lead to the artist having some serious influence on popular culture, not to mention a huge spike in the value of the work. This definitely takes things to the next level.

We should all give Miles a huge congratulations because this is a great accomplishment! Cheers!

ModMana

Miles-

Congratulations again brother, I am gald others are finally recognizing what we realized years ago, you are an incredible artist with unique style. It has been a pleasure to see your art/style progress from the first show at Dion Gallery to present time.

When people come over to the house, it is your paintings that get the most attention and comments, not the Shags, Rydens, Barrs, Marshalls etc...

And now you have the opportunity to show at La Luz, the gallery that helped launch the career of many of those artists!

You deserve it man, it is long overdue.

Now go paint some more.
