Aloha Everyone!
I just spent 2 hours typing this up and replying to y'alls
and telling y'alls how much i loved you all dearly
and then....
i accidently ERASED it!

So,please forgive me,but i gotta work tomorrow
so i will reply to all of you who have been nice enough to leave a comment
at a later date...

here are some of the paintings i will have a Mojave Oasis
for you to adopt!

i share these on here because there are details and explanations
but sorry... no step-by-steps today...

"Sleeping Village by the River"
cel-vinyl and acrylic gouache on wood
with a Bamboo Ben frame
16x20"


a close-up of the moon....
i wanted a crescent moon,but also wanted a PNG-ish face smiling sweetly downward...


Here's the little tiki fellow who
1) was carved and mounted near the riverbank
2) has walked over of his own accord
while everyone was asleep
to talk with his underwater friends....
(i tend to find the second option the most interesting!)


This part was fun to paint!
i painted the fish over the blue ground first
and added the shadows underneath and on them...
a few Artjams back,Toe said it looked like they were floating above the river!
which they were....But that was only stage 1
He didn't know about stage 2!
the last layer of the surface of the water
along with shadows on the fish from above...
note the green "reflection" lines
closer to shore...
simple but effective!


"Closing Time"
cel-vinyl and acrylic gouache on wood
with a Bamboo Ben frame
16x20"


Decided to return to the Tiki Bar Interior scene...
This painting occurs at Closing Time
as the viewer looks woefully back
at drinks half-consumed
and the soft goodbyes of mugs and smiling pufferfish lamps...

Here's my dream bowl...one of em,at least...


Here's a dream PNG shield mug
with a lonely umbrella...


and here's a wobbly pufferfish lamp
bidding the reveler g'night!


"Warning on the Shore"
cel-vinyl and acrylic gouache on wood
with a Bamboo Ben frame
16x20"


This painting was a challenge for a number of reasons....

1)the pallete.... a periwinkle/pink/sky blue/red
offset by olives and a dull brown....
would it work?
Well....i think so
but i got's a bias!

2)i felt like revisiting
the old TikiFarm Mug theme
of the 3 moods
Angry,Crazy
Distracted,Indifferent,meditative
and Very Happy

Like the ol' Oli Oli Kakaka,and Pupule mugs...


brought back here,but applied to these PNG shields....


3)i wanted to set a subtle theme...
What better subtlety than a warning?

4) i wanted to capture reflections and the ripple of water upon a shore
driving the composition upward towards the faces,the gag if you will..
and then having that emotion
the emotion of encountering these shields and the bones strewn about
rippling outward from that emotion,carried into the sky
amplifying it...
capturing that initial shock....


So it was quite a mental push
as well as a little outside of the comfort zone..
but HECK!there was a SALE at Art Supply warehouse,sooooooo
i followed my instinct and grabbed a BUNCH of paints and canvases
for some new stuff for Mojave oasis !
Come on down and see it all in person!
I'll be sharing the tiny trailer with Doug Horne!
(i don't mind spooning! PLUS! He's a giant,so i can just snuggle up on his chest
and he won't even notice....like a cat!)

If you'd like to see EVEN MORE new pieces that i didn;t share here
(ie: no close-ups or comments)
then Go HERE!

Anyways.... It's gettin late
G'night for now!
