As a matter of fact Kinny, yes Nancy called me from work & said hey guess what?
I said "what!" then she said "Kinny got Employee of the Month!"
I said "no fucking way!" then she said "yes, fucking way!"
I replied "well how did kinny pull that off" Nancy said "guess he did some work"
I said "guess so"
So good for you, Kinny! we are going to throw you an Employee of the Month party
you bring the booze, OK?



Yes Lance.... i was just as surprised as you.
Work is work
You go there
kick arse
do your best
own up when you fudge somethin
and spread laughter and smiles
ain't that hard...
the only tough part is coming up with so many ideas every account we tackle.
and of course...the bouncers at my employee of the month party will be sure to let Nancy in and keep the riff-raff (ie: YOU) out!
miss you man!

I don't know when you have time to read! You must never sleep.
Congratulations you are my artist of the month, no YEAR!

Wow! two awards in one year...
this is just getting silly now!
Almost finished with Philip K. Dick's "Flow my tears,the Policeman said"
and his short story "Minority Report" was very compelling....
Highly recommended visionary noir of a dystopian future we may be sinking into...
if you're into that kind of stuff....
A day without Learnin
is a day i go a Yearnin!
I'll cash in all my sleep chips at the "eternal rest" phase of this existence
there's too much wonderfulness out there to sleep!
hhhhhhhhhUGS!

Beautifishious!
AROOOOOOOOOOOO!!



Thanks Pal!
that about sums up the mood after a good artjam!
AROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!


it's getting late,so please pardon as i whiz thru this week's entry...

"Island"
acrylic and cel-vinyl and acrylic gouache on wood
with an awesome Bamboo Ben frame
15 x 16.5"
private collection (that was fast!)


if you scroll up to an earlier entry,i bet you could pick out some of the elements
gleaned from sketchbook Modernist doodles and studies...
Remember kids! Do studies of what you like,but always be sure to tweak it,
transform it,
change it into something new...
something yours
that way it will jibe with YOUR style and world...

Here's just the painting...


and one close-up'cause i am loving me some clamshell waterfalls!


and started an "Enlightened Maori" a while back
just for fun
and am almost finished with it
so here are some progress shots
that are nowhere close to it's awesome present state
leaning against my paint taboret
waiting to be finalized,finished and firmed for public consumption!


it's 2x2' with 3" sides
a real showcase piece.... for what.. i dunno
i just felt the urge and followed it....
drew it small
gridded it out
and pencilled it in
need to keep it asymmetrical
y'unnerstan?

Close-up!


Here's after the initial color placement and slight shading
the white is a pastel pencil i use to sketch out details


close-up!


here's one from a while back.... the bottom half
i think i fudged the top,so i'll hide it for now
'cause it makes me miffy
just to look at it
a humbling experience
but a good alarm
to always be vigilant
and to remain disciplined
and to never take any gift or talent for granted...


Perhaps you remember this picture from a while back..
"the Watering Hole"


Well, i'm makin a paintin of it!
Here it is so far!


and here's two close-ups...


was thinking about the narrative for this one
and while Watering hole was good
it had no real humor in the story
just four fellows attempting to finish a HUGE bowl of libations...


and then it hit me......
THE CHALLENGE!
Perfect title!
Mahalo Muse!


also working on a Moai reaper painting!
2x2' but i can't share it yet

you've seen enough already...
EXCEPT!
Did some sketchbook studies of a papua new guinea myth
here they are for your enjoyment....














some cave studies....




and a final mask for you
as i ready myself for a nice productive day at work...


Good night Ohana!
and thanks again for all the visits and comments
ALWAYS makes my day knowing i can share all these goodies
and hopefully inspire my fellow art brothers and sisters!

What a treat to get up and find you have been here sharing. I really enjoy watching you reach out into the world and pluck a new idea to explore in art. The colors you combine give me joy. You are such a yummy art treat! Thank you for all the joy, Wendy
