We had such a great time at The Chop! Being around so many talented artists for an afternoon was both inspiring & educational, and everyone was very accommodating with our perpetual "observer" status. Thanks, Greg, for a special afternoon full of mirth & mai tais!

YEAH! Congrats Mr. G & Melekalikimaka on an obviously successful jam. All that art, wow! Terrific pics, too, Greg - especially that group shot at the end. Right on~!

I had such a great time! Thanks TikiG for putting this together! I wish I was able to get there sooner, but it was great to hang out and be creative like with some great artists. Here is a closeup of my water color. Started out as a monkey, but kind of evolved into a zombie sea monkey. Wasn't able to finish the puffer fish, but when it's done hopefully it will look like the wall at the Tiki-Ti. Yes, it does look like the Grinch... damn movie has ruined the whole zombie sea monkey market ever since...

TikiGeeki, I LOVE it! Such talent!

I absolutely enjoyed TikiG's chop, you're all so much fun not to mention talented. My muse needs to get on the ball, fo sho!

for anyone interested in seeing some of my work, head on over to my facebook page (add me as a friend) and scan through my album!

Here's a painting of some hybiscus I painted for my Dad. His plan is to open a Tiki Bar called "Flip Flops"

TOTAL BULLSHIT!

what an amazing day! G-man and Kalikimaka Rule!

Did anyone get a shot of Tiki G's amazing gallery upstairs? really groovy display of creativity and range!

Mele Kalikimaka, u are so much fun, u get the "Witty Banter" award. Despite ur clever engineer impersonation, u are welcome to come out all year!

Everyone was working on amazing, creative projects, killer Tikis and paintings, but my favorite was def Adrian's killer puffer lights!!!

Fantastic Ohana get-together...looking forward to doing that again with y'all again soon!

oh, and i apologize for The Ruzic's inappropriate behavior.

I do have a nice couple of pics of G's studio... oh, and what you said about "Impersonating and Engineer", Toe, is complete and utter (or is it udder) bullshit!

"Mele Kalikimaka, u are so much fun, u get the "Witty Banter" award. Despite ur clever engineer impersonation, u are welcome to come out all year!"

That's what HE said....
or
Your Mom's so much fun...

Aloha, and enjoy!

Thanks for all the kind words y'all. It was my pleasure to host everyone for what will now go down in TC history as the first ever San Fernando Valley CHOP!

I'm so relieved it didn't rain...the big guy upstairs gifted us with sunshine. I could just feel the vibe off of everyone just like myself feeling "what a relief to spend time outdoors after a week of constant downpours."

To all who came out to participate, again a heartfelt Thank You!

To those who could not make it this time, Thanks for your support regardless (Ray, I hope my phone call to you in Florida - to let everyone say hello - lifted your spirit in lieu of being here in California in person. We miss you.)

Until the next bull***t session...keep the creative juices flowing until we can get together for this reason again.

Mahalo & Aloha, Greg
