Ken - Yeah, I'm so sorry I got behind on my trip that Saturday. It was non stop promo tour since wed, and when we got up saturday, I was moving a little slower than I should've - and we hit LA Traffic! Sheesh! I forgot how bad it could get. So as we crawled southward, it dawned on us we'd barely make our 2nd or third meeting with collectors in San Diego... so we missed the Secret Head Quarters of Ruzic. (sob!) It would have only a quick hello, and then we'd have to rush off anyways, when really what I want is to hang for the day wit ya!
Next time, after all this crazy art show stuff is over, and If I don't blow it, ... every artist's nightmare - not finishing enough work for an art show! (eek!)
Anyways, thanks for understanding, you R the BEST!
ALOHA!

Your works are always mind-boggling. I may have damaged my retinas looking directly at them before consuming the morning hot beverage, but it was worth it. Stunning as usual, LLT.

Kenny, I just stare at your art and admire every brush and pen stroke. You are a master and deserve to have a million hits on your thread. Love them all and you too, Wendy

Mahalos Professor! Be careful when first awakening and viewing these works pre-coffee...
Overlay of Reality input and vestigial Dream imagery can cause vertigo and confusion so early....best to wait a few hours before

Finally! Been wanting to be a member of the 400,000 Club since i was a wee baby!
i am just so appreciative and a bit surprised that so many folks would want to see
all these scrawlings....BUT i am very pleased that people actually like and often can connect with the art...What a gift! MAHALOS to ALL!!!

Thanks HAng10 tiki!It made the eyes a bit wonky ( it think it may have blew out my prescription on my bifocals! Perfect justice for doing the same to Squid a few years back when he carved my Oli-Oli,KaKaKa,and PuPule mugs for TikiFarm...KArma via glasses!)

Hey surfintiki!
How have you been? Hopefully dandy!
Thank you for the visit!
Usually with BooBen,i grab frames when we vend at the same time (i can usually get in there early and snatch em all up! Usually, i'll give him a call or shoot him a PM,tell him how many i need,what sizes,and then i just ask him for a total when he's done....
Boo does great work and that man works FAST and PERFECT-nailing that perfect look of rawness..that little bit of DIY genius that makes a piece juuuuuust off enough to be perfect....the man knows,and he's always fair with his prices.....BUT! the man is busy,so you have to ask him for something at LEAST a month before you need it.....
If you need something right away-check his MArketplace thread....he's always keeping his hands busy and may have already made what you need!

Thanks again for poppin in!


Okaaaaaaaay...
First off....
I was invited by empee to be in a Mary Blair tribute show
How could one turn that down?

"It's a Small World After All 2012"

Art inspired by the amazing works of Mary Blair and/or art inspired by the Disney
ride "It's a Small World", for which Mary contributed most of the concept drawings for and is credited for the rides amazing color scheme.

The opening party is March 24th @ 6pm at Boomerang Gallery in Petaluma, CA
and will run through April 15th.

HeeBe JeeBe Store
Boomerang Gallery
46 Kentucky St.
Petaluma CA, 94952
707-773-3222

Well, at first i wanted to do a Mary Blair version of HP Lovecraft's
"the Colour out of Space" but after the research,decided to tackle that theme
at a later date in my own style....
But Mary Blair's Atmospheres and landscapes have inspired the mood of that future piece.

Anyways.... i decided to grab ONE piece by Blair and draw inspiration from that.
Here is that piece....


That croc would make a great canoe!
and so it began...sketched it on the wood and was ready for paintin!

"the Aimless Canoe"
acrylic gouache on wood
with a Bamboo Ben frame
20 x 16"


Here it is with just the art....


Like i said...i used her piece as a STARTING point
falling miserably short of her charm and colors and happiness
but i hope she's happy with it....

crocs eat fish,so i changed the canoe motif
to lil fishies travelling thru the canoe's digestive system...


Here's a lil bird fellow hitching a ride on his tail...


and the happy canoe head...


"the Constant Crier"
acrylic gouache on wood
with a spellbinding Bamboo Ben frame!
10x12"


the painting by itself..


This poor shield seems to have a sympathetic heart when considering
the cannibal's many eals laid at his "feet"


close-up of the palms and strewn bones..


this one started with a purple ground....out of the ol'comfort zone colorwise
but the olive and black and lt green blue brought it all together...


"the Late Night Surprise"
acrylic gouache on wood
with a spellbinding Bamboo Ben frame!
12x16"


This one started with a green ground and i decided to use white as the outline
to agitate the situation.....

the painting all by it's lonesome..


a lil looser and raw behind the outlines,
it created a real visceral depth and lighting to the work...


working wet in areas produced some cool looks i'll be sure to utilize later...


bones and hut....



"Valley of the Waterfalls"
acrylic gouache on board
12x12"


Had a notion and decided to design my Hidden Island Lair/Studio....


Fishies!


Here's a PNG inspired one...
"Night of the Red Moon"
acrylic gouache on board
12x12"


little bit of fun with color and PNG motifs....


the red moon..


Lovelovelove this guy's PNG face butt!



and finally two little tiny ones..
"Night Stroller"
acrylic gouache on mini canvas
4x4"


"the Cannibal's Bowl"
acrylic gouache on mini canvas
4x4


Aloha!
That's all i got!
See you all at Don's on Sunday!

Kinster, I missed your last posted group! Great lighting on the bird drum circle. Valley of the Falls is awesome! If you would build your studio there I would come visit more often
