Okay... I am convinced. CONVINCED you have caffeine as a naturally occurring phenomenon within your bloodstream, LLT.

As always wonderful work ad infuntum you crazy nutty goo goo artist. At this point I have run dry on expletives for your work.

I don't know about the Ancestral Pool but the Gene Pool looks like it could use some chlorine!


Love your narrative of the "inner workings" of your painting. Hope the Balinese sketch rises to canvas soon, that will look cool!

Why Thank you Tigertail!
i enjoy popping by and gawking at your egyptian theatre project.
Been working in a couple of other genres as well
but i try to keep it Tiki here and dump the other stuff elsewhere
(just in case i ever get accused of slacking)
No caffeine in the bloodstream occurring naturally
i haveta make it
but it mixes well with the motivation that DOES flow in these veins!

even on sketches like "the path"..
great to watch.

I wish you had more time to post because it is such a treat when you do. Your art is recognizable which is something I haven't accomplished...yet. Art Shark is right, the detail is so well done and interesting.

Many hugs art brother, Wendy

Glorious day is GLORIOUS! Love the intricate detail. Maybe you have said it before, but I am curious about how you do this tissue paper technique?

Hey Tigertail! Thanks for visiting and taking a stroll around the island! The tissue paper stain is pretty easy and hails back from my Illinois Elementary School upbringin,tho a lil more experienced these days....

i grab a piece of Aquarelle watercolor paper
(hopefully still on the block,so it doesn't buckle)
i grab a foam brush loaded with water and slosh it around here and there -bring sure to keep some areas of the paper dry 'cause you can get different looks on the surfaces....... Anyways,then i crumple up some tissue paper and apply it to the wet surface...then i dip the foambrush in some ink and slosh it down over that...depending on how hard i mush down results in the different textures.... after allowing it to dry for a few minutes-remove the tissue paper,spot a crumpled paper towel on it here and there ,but not too much or you'll obliterate the fine textures.... wait for it to dry and repeat as much ad you want til satisfied.... I'll do a step-by-step on here when i get some time,Sir!
In the meantime,keep that creative spirit of yours ALIVE!


First things first......
i WILL be vending THIS SATURDAY at Don's

Then I write

My dream is to one day see that studio in person. In January we are visiting Benzart in Florida. It is such a treat to see where the best tiki art comes from...

Hugs, Wendy
