ALOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHA KIDS!
FULL BORE locked into Oasis/End of the Year Secret Thang Preparation

But first...
I'd like to chat with some friends
who were kind enough to leave some comments
and then we will proceed...

Holy skateboard heaven
More awesomeness from the master
Wow
Wish I had one of those boards as a kid
because it would have been to cool to use
So I could have avoided all those injuries




Well Thanks hang10,old chummy!
Maybe these boards will save a few kids from injury...
Trying to assess my time before oasis
to see if i can make some more
But i need to pain some mugs and bowls
and woodburns
and small paintings
and a Coloring book in the works
OOPs! Did i let that slip?

Yes...if the Tikigods smile upon this endeavor
then i will have a Coloring book
with at LEAST 18 brand new Never Seen pieces of work!
Exquisite drawings for you to color up!
Wish i could share,but i shall as we approach the BIG Event!
Awwwwww Okay..... Just this one lil sneaky peek!

Great stuff, Kinny!



Well hello Stranger!
How in the HECK are you?
Well.... if you DUG the last batch,this new cluster will be sure to delight!
Thank YOU sooo much for visiting this thread.
i promise to strive to amaze and inspire every entry!

Well, first, I'll share an offering for the "Atomic Tiki Terrors" exhibition at
Tobunga's "Creature features" gallery...
this exhibition honored the atomic monsters of the old 50's atomicploitation films
with a poly-pop twist...
Here is my entry
:Atomic Tiki Terror"
Acrylic and cel-vinyl on wood
with a Bamboo Ben frame


Here it is at the exhibit....


Here's the sketchbook study that started it all....


and here are some details of the painting..






and that's ACTUAL Japanese Katakana (like Kanji-but phonetic,as opposed to pictogram)


Besides completing 18 coloring book pages
an Art Supply Warehouse Spree included some 6x8" watercolor pads
so with ink/Copic marker/and other medium
i began to just spew out ideas for pieces
with the double purpose of becoming affordable small drawings/pieces for Oasis
an opportunity for those who can't afford a painting
to still be able to bring to their hut
an original piece of art
drawn and thunk up by the artist...

Well anyways.here are the fruits of this art ESPLOSION
for your enjoyment....

See if you can guess WHAT medium
i used on each piece...
"Volcano"


"Double Tongue"


"Fish"


"Jungle Night"


"Land of the Volcanoes"


"Morning path"


"Neon Still Life 1"


"Neon Still Life 2"


"Pineapple"


"Polynesian Night"


"the Clamshell"


"the Dispute"


"the Lonely Conversation"


"the Lost Pearl"
(private collection)


"the Meal"


"the Nightwatch"


"the Talker"


"the Thirsty Jaws"


"the Village at noon"


"the Warrior"


"Trippy Tapa"


"Village"


"Waterfall Village"


"Waterfall"



Well, i hope you have enjoyed this journey behind the paintings
the ideas
the MEAT

Anyways.... seeing as i still have a day job
i must leave you,dear Ohana

i hope your eyes and heart are Happy!

Aloha Ohana!

Finally recovered from post-Oasis exhaustion
So many memories and not ONE picture taken....
Now THAT is FULL IMMERSION,my friends....
Saw a LOT of old friends
MET a LOT of new folks
Highlights were....got to experience Amy Boylan's Spectacular Spaceship Room!
and allowing my Spirit Hut to leave with two wonderful friends,Roger and June.
June hails from the Solomon Islands and is just the apotheosis of happiness.
This painting reminded her of home,and being able to give such special folks a painting that could help keep those memories alive and nearby has got to be the greatest gift an artist could ever grant...worth more than all the tiki mugs in the world!

Another Sunny spot was my hug from Wendy..a time honored and cherished tradition whenever our paths cross at Oasis!
Speaking our dear 2 million maiden....

Wendy! it was SO great to see you over the course of the event! Your smile always refuels my heart,and keeps me on the path of making art...Such a tight sense of family and love we artists in this group share! As for "every free hour" working on art.... Well, after required sleep,a few naps,and four days a week of work-work,YES! Most of the rest of the time is dedicated to painting or the creation of said art objects!
I am glad my work brings you as much joy as your work and gentle nature brings this community and myself! You're such a treasure,Wendy! and i LOVE Dan's beard! Mountain man!

Well....got a Lot of goodies to share and am going MINIATURE GOLFING TONIGHT
so i need to post these and STILL get some painting time in before then
so let us proceed,mmm?

Tiki Oasis Art Show!

So many Great Pieces! Congrats all!

Here is my piece for the show...

Here are some new woodburns...


i titled these,but forgot them in the heat of packing/prep week
so let's just look at them,m'kay?












The above were created via pyrography (woodburning)
on wood with a wash of acrylic and some creme hi-lights!

Here are some of the hand-painted TikiFarm KAINOA Bowls
that were hand-painted with love for my friends!
I had painted both FINISHED ceramics with enamel
and enamel/acrylic painted Bisques
(the Bisques were sealed with a Polymer Resin
so they have a thick shiny coating-tho the bisque versions are NOT safe for drinking-Collecting Only)
Anyways,enough of the caveats
HERE's THE CERAMICS!!!

Kainoa bowl
Three Kings Edition
hand painted enamel on bisque

King Ku decided to take a lil break
during the photoshoot and soak his feet!


Here's a Spinaround

but leave the outside bisque
to make BE-A-Utiful!

Also got to play with Swizzle's Bob-O-Nuts
Hand painted Bob-o-Nuts
Carved by Robbie Toth
and hand-painted by myself
Sun Puffer and Gold Puffer Editions








Also... took a chance and pushed these thru in just enough time for Oasis! It was a BEAR checking and double checking the layout,because it would have required a Sample copy first,and then the run of 100... unfortunately this project was a Spur-of-the-moment dealio,so i just said a silent prayer and ordered 100 copies..... and Providence Smiled
and they turned out beautiful!
and i still have around 40 left
which i plan to sell at the International Marketplace Whatever it's called at Don the Beachcombers on Sept 12th
There,you can get a signed copy before i reveal how to get infinite copies ONLINE!
Ain't you excited? i am!
So many smiles are trapped within these pages!


Anyways, gotta unpack and try and get some painting done before MINIATURE GOLF tonight! it's the Simple things...
Aloha til we sail side-by-side SOON!

Right on with the joyfulness this was a terrific post. I just love all that you do and in person how your spirit shines. Changing Swizzles Bob-O-Nut to a puffer was genius. It was great to see you. Dan is my mountain man. He is loving not having to shave. See you at Marketplace one day in the future. Hugs from Dan and I
