Aloha!
i just gotta say...
if you haven't seen Robb Hamel's velvet hibiscus
or tikiShark's latest aloha kitty go NOW!
you can always visit here on Monday or Tuesday
and I'll have a couple of the new drawings properly scanned...
have a NEW painting
based on an OLD painting
from 2002...
but more on that later.

first i wanna say hi to my friends....
Hi Clarita!
Mahalo girl!!!
I just wish that I would get more beautiful!
If i were most excellently beautiful
i could paint ugly paintings all day
but wouldn't care
'cause i'd be BEAUTIFUL!
Sorry!
What were we talking about?

How is it possible?
My uncle David told me that the best way to be a better artist was to practice/practice/practice
until it's not practice anymore
but actual worthwhile meaningful artwork...
you know how that is!
look at the progress/advancement we've all made
just by sticking to it and doing it til we gots better and better!
Artistic Advancement is rampant here in Other Crafts!
Can't wait to see you advance from bamboo to even "nobler" woods!
How awesome is that gonna be!?!?
Thanks for the visit,sweetie!!


Iokona Ki'i
Thanks for poppin by for a visit!
Tiki ti was hilarious!
How was that Down Syndrome coconut hula monkey
behind the bar?
thank you for diggin
"the LAND of the FISH"
final title..
I know you really liked the title
"The forest of floating fish"
i really wanted something short and snappy
and the contrast of land and fish
was all that was needed
let the viewer fill in the rest!
the intersecting of lines
helps to create a world of both graphic flatness
and a spatial
in front of
behind
at the same time
so it's a solidity/transparency thing
as well as the cubist aesthetic of differing views of objects and their relation to each other
also the transparency adds to the dreamy feel
so it kinda works on a bunch of levels..
thanks for bringing that up!
that's why i love talking to artists!

Well, "Land of the Fish" is done!
but I'm scanning it tomorrow so you might have to wait on the EYE-POPPIN results!
Also, got to buy some textured COLD-PRESS paper
to try some fabric print/narratives in a courser
more primitive style....
speaking of new art supplies...
BigToe bought a JUNKLOAD of canvases
and i bought lotsa pens and paints and paper and brushes
at last weekend's 25% off sale at the Art Supply Warehouse in Westminster! YAY!
art supplies are a beautiful thing.....

stained up a bunch of paper recently....


and did this "the faraway gift for Pele"
with some Maoris bringing a pineapple flame bowl to the goddess....why not?
I'll have an actual scan soon, but here's a blurry teaser shot...



Oh! before i forget...
Big toe,tobunga,and myself have recently
been invited to grace the walls at
the Picture Show gallery in Seal Beach
531 main Street, to be exact!
Pop in there and say Aloha to Mike in there!
Great collection of Surf artists,Tiki artists,
and many more surprises! and a great Mexican restaurant down the street!

enough! enough of this mindless drivel....
ART! ART!
'member earlier?
"a NEW painting
based on an OLD painting
from 2002..."
here's the old painting...
I had just sold this piece recently
it was the painting that really got me jazzed on doing a kid's book...
the original LLT narrative
it's called
"Little lost Tiki listening to the fishes' Song"
based on a short scene i had written
which i won't type out right now
but will post when i can find it and copy it.....


i really have always loved this piece for the simplicity
the innocence, the melancholy,the sweetness of it
at least to me
and the new {sniff!} owner
jus' kidding!
Anyways, since it's being shipped to a new home along with my lonely cannibal,i thought it would be good to spend a day with it
look at it /re-study it/and........
Try it again! 7 years later!
Could i still capture the same sense of wonder/ the same innocence and sweetness?
let's find out!
Here's how it looked 2 days ago...
My last BIG Bamboo Ben frame
something befitting a Master such as Ben
a piece he would be proud to have collaborated with!
Soooooooooo....
with that Sword of Damocles over my head
sketched out in water-soluble pencil
just winging it with acrylic washes
i used a Payne's gray to do the intial shading
because the original had that
so here's what i got so far....


i decided to revamp the little lost tiki into a bit more cuter character....
no more frown,but a sweet surprise kind of smile!


and then yesterday, i added some colored washes over the Payne's gray...


here's two closer up views
Eyes Left!


Eye's Right!


i wanted it to have a little more activity
but still even tho there's a bunch of crazy stuff happening around
almost like they're frozen
or in slow-motion...

Here's a close-up of the little lost Moai
with his gentle smile....


changed up the boat a little
from the original piece...
here's a detail of the prow...


here's one of the volcano islands

i wanted to give this whole piece a shallow water feel
wait til i start doing the flowers ABOVE and BELOW the surface of the water! Wheeeeeeeeee!

decided to add a Seahorse....
cause i love them!


havin some fun mixing fact and fantasy with these fishies!


LA!LA!LAAAAAAAAAA!


Here's an ultra close-up of the acrylic wash on the gessoed wood...
this is going to be a Beautiful SHELL someday!


This is a 2x3-footish sized one and is gonna be soooooo fun to paint!

that's it1 I gotta o to work tomorrow! YAWNERS!
G'night Crew! Thanks for a'visitin!
