Alohaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
How y'alls doin?
Well,it's been awhile
so i will be brief with catchup...

Oasis was a splendid success
Sooooooo many paintings,custom mugs,and drawings
went off to good homes
even Australia!
So many hugs and so many friends and soooooo many drinks!
AND i lasted in Tiki Hell for a solid 2 and a half hours on Sat night!
so much fun and with dibroc and Thor as suite-mates
it was a BLAST!
We only brought around 50 of each of our TikiFarm mugs and bowls
and the remaining inventory could be counted on one hand!
Thank you ALL!

Here's my favorite pic from Oasis...
Hammied on i don't know HOW many drinks
and dancin with my lady in the Tiki Hell room!
RAWR!


Also was involved in the Grand Opening exhibition
at the Surf Club Art gallery last month
with Toe,Doug,Diablo,Atomikitty amongst others

Odd Rodney,sculptor extraordinaire joined us at the opening


Also,been getting ready for the International Tiki marketplace this month!


Doug,Toe,Ben,and i will be there hi-jinxin
as well as a SPECIAL appearance by the legendary Odd Rodney
Artist Par Excellence!

We'll all have some goodies for you to oggle at!

and last,but not least....
"Sympathies and Antipathies"

yet another in a string of solo exhibitions since 1989
but this one is gonna have some HUGE pieces
which is why the internet has been ignored after work for so long...
the website DOES have some Polynesian pop pieces in there
so feel free to go exploring!

Here's a link to the HUGE paintings for this show
details,insights,and tutorials
www.kinnyruzic.com/blog/


Okay!
Here's a NEW painting for November...

"the Sleeping Volcano"
acrylic and cel-vinyl on wood
with a beautiful Ben Bamboo frame!


Here it is sans frame...


We'll start at the lower left corner...

a little A-frame guarded by a shield on a stick

as we move to the right an aerial view of a long hut appears!


Back to the left middle,we see the main community center
multi-leveled with enough room to accommodate the village


a little ravine between the huts



Here's a distant A-frame,sleeping volcano,and shield brothers


Thus concludes our tour,dear friends
Thanks for visitin
and we'll talk soon!

Love it! Love the colors! As always - a lesson in color choices…almost exactly the colors I am thinking of for my current piece!

I always start with the last page posted and then I back up a page just to get a bigger "fix". So much good art to enjoy. Keep posting we can't get enough. Wendy

Aloha Ohana!
Well, have just a smidgen of time to relinquish,as i have a 6 by 4 foot "Fall of the Rebel Angels" and a few other pieces to finish for November 7th's solo exhibition
"Sympathies and Antipathies"...
Perhaps you are wondering....
Why has ken's output been so sporadic and few and far between lately?
Well....
because i have been working on
THIS!


and,at 3 x 5 feet,just finished THIS!


And numerous small pieces
which,you'll have to come to the Exhibit to see...


So, enough of the shameless plugs ...
and let's get back to TIKI
seeing as this is Tiki Central...
i made some special goodies
just to keep one foot in Polynesia
whilst loftier monumental paintings occupy
a large portion of time lately..

But before strutting these out
I would like a few minutes to reply and banter to your sweet comments above
concerning "the Sleeping Volcano" WHICH...by chance ...is also going to be in the November show...

Thank you Mikey! JUST YOU WAIT when you see the 2 x 5 footer vertical jungle waterfall piece i have just DECIDED to create for the show...
Truth is,i want to finish watching the Godfather trilogy as i relax from the ITMP yesterday...and the 6 x 4 footer does not allow for television viewing
as the canvas blocks the set... (and also because a theme such as the fall of the Rebel Angels deserves COMPLETE FOCUS)
So today will be the beginnings of a piece that will be TRIPLE B-Bitchin!
Check in here next week,bubs!

Love you Brad! That gorgeous tonal Kitty Tiki Tune Max Fleischer piece must be driving you NUTS,with your awesome love and mastering of juicy tonalities! Eager to see the OUTSIDE of that room! How's the Escher piece coming along,BTW?
Anyways...miss you,my friend,and wish you were closer...Jammin with Doug and Toe on a regular basis has allowed us all to understand each others work,and have seen it grow,which is such a joyful (and FUN) experience!
miss you...

Wander away buddy!
As these are painted,i get lost in the foliage,or want to stagger inside an A-frame....a little escape to paradise!
So glad i can take my friends to places secret and sacred...

Love you Wendy! You are one of my artistic role models
with your quality output
tireless and selfless heart
and beauty and personality of created objects...


Well, look who sailed up to the shores of the Studio of Solitude this week!


it appears my PiNGo "Jungle love" Edition mug has brought two more fellows
for me to care for....

Well, let's look at these two
BEFORE being lovingly enhanced....
First off
the Kolohe mug
the Crybaby..


Here he is transformed into the GINGER EDITION!








and here is the KAINOA Bowl
before desecration...

WHICH,you can find on the TikiFarm website
So order a few and make this next royalty check of mine a HAPPY one!


















So that is all i gots for now....
These ceramics are enamel painted "cold painted" over the glaze
but are safe for drinkin out of AND dishwasher safe!
WHEEEE!

Well, i'm off to paint a 2x5 foot tropical landscape
and enjoy some Godfather...
and try not to cry when Fredo gets Whacked on the boat in Lake Tahoe....

Cheers!

Wow....happy that I popped over to The LLT thread. Absolutely love the
huge painting of the cat with the eye-piece. Lots to look at...I can see
that you have been very busy.
One of my favorite threads...gives me ideas for fancy firewood.

Hopefully you are riding a wave of inspiration that hasn't dissipated since Oasis!
