I sure am glad you have returned. We've been missing you every day. I'll have to go check out your web site so I can have a Kinny rush. I love the new fish painting. Eric October has a wonderful book, when will you have an equally wonderful book? Hugs, Wendy

Well Howdy Do,Ohana!

Sorry for the delay
(about a month or so..SHEESH! Sorry for slacking,but in the immortal words of Dolemite to Calamity jane in "The human Tornado"...
"BUT BABY,I BEEN BUSY!"

Listening to Tomaso Albinoni's "Adagio in G Minor
and thought i'd take this relaxing evening in the hot studio
with a fan and some friends...

Lot's
and i mean LOT's of work to share with YOU today!
But first...
i must reply to all of your comments first
you all who leave them
actually take the time to type something down
no matter how short
and i really appreciate that...

it helps me feel like i'm not just creating these in some selfish bubble
but that you are all enjoying them
and hopefully they are inspiring YOU
to grab that creative torch
do some research
and contribute something special to this family of artists we have here...

Hello Brad! Thanks for all the Cooper songs and pacific rim chitchat!
Great Pieces are in store,my friend! Acrylic gouache isn't as "gritty" as regular gouache,BUT it's cool because when it's dry-it's dry.. i used to have a problem doing figures with regular gouache because the paint on the ground would come up when wet....NOT ANYMORE! and ,like acrylic matte paint and cel-vinyl,it drys flat-perfect for photographing!"the Fallen Comrade" was a hit at the Sacred and Profane" show....Sold Seven pieces and ALMOST sold that one,but now i got it for Tiki Oasis to share with the hardcore Tiki Folks!

i wish you'd fly down and stay for a week...We could have at least 3 Artjams!

Speaking of Artjams...
here's two we've had recently..
the first with just Toe,Doug,and meself
i think we were watching some MXC or "Run Ronnie Run!"
this is Toe's typical position during the artjams
how we creates those Masterworks in such a short time is beyond me...
This is a "Horne's eye view" as we pull out the table for Doug
(i have a special lamp for him i've hooked on one of the masks in the back room
and he just powers thru.stopping only when boobies flash across the screen of whatever film we're viewing for the evening...
and that's me in back
in my little corner
painting drawing watching films
at least 40 or so hours a week
I'd like to embalmed and placed in a museum
in a diorama built to resemble the studio backroom...
but it's only a wish....
a sweet wish.....
Anyways....her's the shot!



and here's last week's hi-jinx
with Doug,Toe,matt lebelle (co-worker,friend,and ex-rad-famous snowboarder)
and.... the illustrious Bamboo Ben!
He stopped by to drop off some frames
and stayed thru the classic 70's Drive-In movies
"Cindy and Donna"
and "the Stepmother"
it was so great to hang for a few hours with the boys
(as we are all busy)
Ben,as you know,finished up the Tiki Iniki across the pacific
and created a Hut for the Surfite display at the Kustom Kulture 2o year show
Toe had two pieces in there too
Doug should've been in that show
but i think he was home playing with his cats
...

Hello Darling!
Thank you so much for your friendship and sweet sentiments...
Sorry about the Absence,but it DOES make the heart grow fonder...
Been neglecting the website as well
but i figure after Oasis they'll be some breathing room...
Thanks so much for your visits
and your tremendous output
stupendous talent
and the biggest heart i've ever sen!
Eric needs about 10 books to share all that Stupendous art!
when will i have a book?
i dunno,but HAVE been investigating Kickstarter
in case it does happen...

Why thank you,Mike!
The show was quite a thrill
the crowd loved the variety
and scale
and clumsy Epic approach to trying to consolidate the themes
of the past 20 years...
hope to see you at Oasis!
I'll be at the suite with two Creative Powerhouses!
Crazy Al and THOR!

What a great opportunity to get some facetime with these two
long-time art-brothers!

Mahalo WoodTiki!
Thank you SO much!
Well.... hearing the disappointment in your words
here's some pics of that grand evening of art and merriment!
we even had around a dozen TCers show up
lots of hugs and intense conversations
and Sales!















I made sure to take some shots before the doors opened
and then got some crowd shots

Also got to spend an hour on the Ray Boylan show
about a month ago
here's the flier


and here's the show....
http://www.latalkradio.com/Players/Boylan.shtml?date=June+05,+2013&file=060513

here's my first interview with ray last year
this one is pretty HILARIOUS
http://www.latalkradio.com/Players/Boylan-092612.shtml

and here's one with BigToe and i
plugging our "Clash of the Titans" exhibition
http://www.latalkradio.com/Players/Boylan.shtml?date=June+05,+2013&file=060513

and i got a six-hour interview with the endearing Aimee Allen
that morphed into this endearing article in the Fullerton Observer

Thank you! Battle of the Fish is a theme i revisit from time to time
it was first inspired by some Han dynasty tomb rubbings
and just elaborated from there...

oh stop it Brad!
get back to work!


Anyways the California Screamin show at Don's
had a special art show within the art show
sponsored by Deadhead Rum
BigToe,Doug Dorr,Myself,and a host of others
were tasked with transforming one of their bottles,,
Here is my submission

"the Evil Eye"
Acrylic,Cel-vinyl,and puffpaint
on a Deadhead Run bottle


here is a roundabout view for you to enjoy....














and..Tiki Oasis has an Art show
and so wanting to tie-in
the Americana theme
but not wanting to leave
this storybookish polynesian fantasyland
that permeates the work

i have chosen the All Familiar theme of the outhouse!
Hearkening back to the novelty toys of my youth....
ESPECIALLY THIS ONE!


You'd open the door and he'd turn around and "pee" water at you
out of a little peeper!


Good Times....

"the Windy Day"
pyrography and cel-vinyl tinting on wood
12 x 12"


an old wooden and Bamboo Outhouse....
A gusty wind blows open the door and the rest need not be explained...

i put a little crescent moon on the outhouse door....


Hey! Shut that Door!


Hey!


Here's a side view of the Outhouse
with a Ku motif and boid peeping about...

painting wind is hard enough
try capturing that with a woodburn and tinting!
pain in the butt
and posessed my thoughts for a few days
but it yielded good fruit in the end!


Closer! WHOOOOOOSH!


Hey! Shut that Dang-Blasted Door!



Well... in case you haven't heard..
Tiki Farm will be releasing PiNGo
at Tiki Oasis this year!
it will also be available online for those of you
who can;t make it...

here is the original that inspired it...


Seeing as the front of the mug was decided,here are some sketchbook studies trying to decide what would go on the back end of this beauty!















From there ,a sensible ,more professional rendering was required


Way too much detail for a mere mortal sculptor to undertake!
So it was simplified,retaining the character and spirit of the original...


which evolved into THIS!



here's some NEVER BEFORE SEEN PHOTOS of the original clay sculpt
that TikiFarm produced...


mmmm! looks so Chocolaty!
i just wanna take a BITE!






FIRST glaze sample...



and the FINAL RESULT!
capturing some of the uneven speckled textures of foliage and aged wood
i think this will be a fun mug to have a few with
and just turn it around slowly
absorbed in the lush tropical jungle
for a spell...


Oh! here's a funny story..
the first name that came to mind was PNG-WHIZ!
(like Papua New Guinea with Gee-Whiz thrown in)

but then the song
There was a farmer who had a Dog
and .....
PiNGo was his name-o
sprang to mind!
(the PNG in PiNGo still satisfying that pun)
So we went with it'
and then Holden wrote
to inform me that "Pingo" in Spanish
means "pervert" or something close to that...
after some discussion it was agreed to keep that name
and contribute a funny name in two languages!

Alrightio!
Now onto some new paintings with them Bamboo Ben frames!
this one was semi-inspired by this...

"the Chief's Bowl"



"the Volcano Bowl"
14 x 20.25"
acrylic and cel-vinyl on wood
with a glorious Bamboo Ben frame!



Noe real story for this one...
mostly a lighting and color study
i do feel that thru these two subjects
that a story DID develop
the surprise of the shields on the wall
as the volcano bowl lights the bar for a second....

Here it is without a frame


and some close-ups...








and here's another drawing that inspired the next painting
"the Withholder"
Ink on Aquarelle watercolor paper
10.25 x 14"
private collection


and here's a painting
a little bit different
as i add and delete things
(i hate drawing the same thing twice)

"the Withholder"
21.25 x 21"
acrylic and cel-vinyl on wood
with an Awe-Inspiring bamboo Ben frame!


just the painting...


a warmer palette
in honor of my hot studio

Gimme a sip of your tasty Alcoholic beverage please!


Sluuuuuuuurp.


Ah! the plight of the Stingy and the mooch...

Here's a favorite part of this piece
i wanted to put a PNG mask on the wall
BUT i also wanted to paint some open shark jaws...
Detente!


this last piece
WHICH WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE AT TIKI OASIS
this YEAR! is inspired by this drawing...

"Composition with Skull Bowl"
ink,Copic marker,pastel pencil on tissue paper-stained Aquarelle watercolor paper
10.5 x 14"


it seemed too clutterd for a painting
so i sparsed it up
and thru the mysterious blues
evoked a suspicious air of dread
at the arrival of the Skull Bowl!

"the Skull Bowl"
17 x 19.5"
acrylic and cel-vinyl on wood
with a Chunky bamboo Ben frame!


Love the HEAVY top and bottom of this frame
adds to the Heeeeavy atmosphere of this lil gem!

here's just the painting


These were all done right on the wood
no gesso
that way it soaked and soaked in the paint
as each layer was applied
becoming one...
it's nice because up close the grains show thru in areas
ever so lightly
it's nice...

Here's the skull bowl
Dave Deuce Estala brought up that it reminded him of Squid's Squll Bowl....
Y'know? ithat bowl was awesome and must've seeped in a little
tho my humble scribblings could never match the beauty of that sculpture....
Just talked to Dave last week.
He's doing some collaborations with gecko
that are true works of art
deserving space in museums ...


Here's a dazed maori..
Sounds like the name of a drink
"the Dazed Maori"
i like it..


this fellow is in
what we commonly refer to as...
THE ZONE


and this little nervous
TikiBob meets PNG shield fellow
His friendly hesitant smile
is a welcome sight
while wading thru the Blue...


Well Well....
That was a LOT of typing and a LOT of uploading
but i can sleep easily tonight
knowing i have caught up
and am able to provide you
with sneak peeks of the newest freshest paintings...
goodnight Dear ohana!

And a BIG BIG Mahalo for over 600,000 views
a collection of close-to 3000 comments
and providing me with 200 pages to share this
journey of art
with my family here on TC

Hope to see y'alls at Tiki Oasis this year!

Hey Kinny, I think the new mug is a winner!
also I quite enjoy "the Volcano Bowl" it would look real nice in the lounge

I can't help but notice a little more whimsy in the new pieces too, Is Doug rubbing off on you?
keep up the great work.

As I was scrolling down looking at all the different ideas for the back of the mug I was thinking "wow, I hope the bird is the winner" and it was. The mug came out great.
All the "bowl" pieces look awesome.
The BOO frames are sweet too.
See you at Oasis.

Jon

And Deadhead should let you paint all their bottles...

Kinny this was so worth waiting for, this was a book all on its own and each page so good that it was hard to leave for the next. The work that goes into posting is an act of love for all of us who wait. Thank you for this gift. I appreciate seeing all that you do. The show, the mug the paintings all over the top terrific, just like you! Hugs at Oasis, Wendy
