Hey Gang!
Two more days and this will finally be over! (except for the taking everything home and re-hanging it part!) It's gonna be so fun to see the mix of people from this wild 17 year art ride! Fun! Fun!
Ray's gonna have his wifey there! Wow! me too!It'll be like wife night! The only bad part is trying not to get caught oggling all the pretty young ladies at these gigs! I'll see what I can do about the red carpet and conch shell!
the Crab Cooker's good and so is LaCave-they have great drinks and Phil Shane,my favorite lounge singer plays there occasionally!
Thanks Heweey and Clarita and Jymmy! Nice picture by the way! Looks like the Tonga Hut Special Olympics!Best wishes to you and the family!
Hiphip-the Bahooka is FAR away from Costa Mesa-maybe an hour in traffic....
I should be at the show about an hour early and wouldn't mind if someone bought me a Bushmills and Coke to slam at the Little Knight next door before engaging the crowds! Also,this show is about 8 miles away from Sam's Seafood,which is having a Parking Lot Sale that day! So if any of you want to end your day with some art,have at it and pay the show a visit! Anyways,as I'll be woiking at the studio tonight and tomorrow, Here's my last Sneak Peek at some of the goodies you'll encounter on Saturday Night in Costa Mesa at "the Last Minute" show!
"the House of Good Fortune"

"the Last Judgment"an homage to the genre! Big just like the old paintings!
A whopping 4x5 feet!

"the Gathering"

a print of "the Arrival of the Pineapple King" This one's 2x4 feet,not 6x4 feet-too hard to move around!

and finally..."the Protecting Angel"

"Robust Nuclear Penetrating Device"

Hope to see y'all there! Free Hugs!

Lets keep the wives separated so they cant exchange notes about us .

Try cramming 55 paintings in a pickup truck,including a 5 x4 footer,
THEN try and cram a 6 by 4 footer on top of that...ain't happening,man!
Seeing as you're a carver now,Ray, just choose your next vocation carefully....
When the Great Job-Granter comes along,refuse the heavy 300 lb. tiki carving offer and go with something smaller and lighter,like...origami folder,or leather belt tooler!

First of all you call that a TRUCK ? Its more like a Honda with a bed on it . My F-250 craps bigger than that .The size of the work matches the man . Big arms , big tiki's . Toothpick arms ,coffee table art . I should have been a lumberjack . Chop down trees , eat pancakes and sing songs all day . Gotta go now , My blue ox is tramping through my Hibiscus bushes .

Again, best of luck Kenny....this collective is mind numbing. It's very hard for me to pick a favorite...I like them all.

Cheers, and sell well.

Whoopie!
Today's the day!!!It doesn't matter how many of these shows ya do-there's always a bit of nervousness and anticipation-so the day of the show is my RELAXATION day! Just puttering around,chain smoking,reading,and watching some youtubes of seamonsters and bigfoot footage...Prolly get a nice nap in there today,,,and the wifey wants to give me a massage! YAY!
Anyways, thanks Babalu! G;ad you like a lot of them! i believe it's the artist's duty to examine many things,it helps him to find connections and patterns in events,culture,history,and the like. This show kinda reflects the "All over the Map" approach to this show and how the art has evolved.
TikiRay-the View...
Jymmy-it'll be good to see you there! I'm honored at all the people (and the high-caliber and class of most of these people) who want to come and see this on short notice!Thanks!
Chongo-Mahalo!It will never be as great a time unless Randy's there! Since you're coming in spirit,I'd like you to whisper the phrases... "buy that" "that would look great over the couch" "Chicks would dig me more if they knew I appreciated and bought good art" "that painting,hung on the wall in my frontroom,would make people think i'm smart" to the audience tonight! Thanks man! I'll do the same for you at your show on the Island! Randy, we really miss you man! Can't wait to see you in november sir!
Hip-ster! can't wait to smile when i see ya!
Well, last minute Hype-here's some more pictures of pieces in the show! Enjoy!
"the Lost Crew"

"Saint Surveillance"

"Pentagon and Scimitar"

"Night and Forest"

"the Herald"

"the Errant Flock"

"Big Mouthed Cannibal Paddle"

Hope to see all y'all there! I'll try to remember my camera!
Toodles!

Congrats Ken . Queen Wahine and I are excited to get out of the house and visit you tonight .We will be there with bells on our toes and bones in our noses . Kens work is like a Grateful Dead concert . You may have heard about it but you have to experience it up close at least once in your life .These pics do not do Kens intense dedication justice.
