Well Helloooooooooo!
It's been awhile and time is limited tonight
but i've got a bunch of stuff to share,so let's get down to it!
let's chat a bit with these lovely folks who were nice enough to leave some comments...

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!
Wendy



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

Thanks Wendy! the feeling is mutual,art-sister!
Love the Night Sky Moai with the stars! Such a great concept executed flawlessly!

Well Well...
First day of work after spending paradise on Earth
at Mojave Oasis last weekend!
I'll share some pictures of that magical time
at a future date....it was so great to attend an event
and just chill with the Ohana....my sides still hurt from laughing so hard and so much!

Anyways....finished this before i left
just hadn't had time to share...
"the Enlightened Maori"
acrylic,cel-vinyl,and paintpen on canvas
2 x 2' with 3" museum sides
(which i will paint up like thatch very soon!)


This fellar is BIG and imposing!
Standing 3" off the wall, it comes atcha like a snorting beast!


His third eye,staring off into the hidden mysteries that surround us all!


Snort! Snort!


I'm providing some close-ups to help you all visualize the layers of color and shadow
You can even see the final shading,as i went around the areas that protruded more
on the face...

Here's one of his hands,curled right into place..


a detail of the mouth,tongue,and stowaways...
i tried to achieve a rhythmic movement with the carvings around the mouth..
i wanted it all to be ALIVE and to move and to bring you up to that EYE!


Here's a lil closeup of one of them stowaways


a little angled shot for dramatic purposes...


and a big nod to Soccertiki with this close-up!


Well, with a number of unfinished
half-done
just sittin there
paintings lying about the studio

another one was started!
this one inspired by
"the Fifth Drink"


Decided it was just too good to be left a drawing!
and so......


Here's a detail of the top part,so you can observe the
pencil underdrawing and initial coloring..


the bottom half,slowly taking shape


Just look at that lolling tongue!


and Lookie!
a Cyclops Cannibal king Mug! YAY!


Well Friends,the midnight hour closely approaches
and i must rest for work in the morn....
Thanks for all the visits and have a great Week!

Always happens, you just can't look at one! Looking back I saw the clam shell waterfalls and thought how beautiful those are in your painting. It's all wonderful. Wendy
