Aloha Tiki Tribe.
So, I have a big art-show coming up on July 4th in LA at "La luz de Jesus Gallery". Famous for being the birth-place for the "Low-Brow" Art movement started by Robert Williams. This is the biggest most important show of my career thus far. I will be showing 7 paintings. I had planned on more, but this cursed law suit with Cafe Press, (in which they stole my art and was selling it on line), really threw my Artist' focus off - and I found it very hard to work.

Luckily, my Art Agent talked the gallery into showing what else has been happening with my art over the last 2 years as well, so I'll also show Skate Decks & whole Boards w/custom wheels, Boogie Boards, Beach Towels, and such stuff. Should be a nice amount of eye candy. Even several sketches and drawings will be framed and up for sale.

Here's a look at the paintings.


1.) "The Red Tiki Lounge", 24" x 30" Acrylic on canvas.

2.) "The Wanderer", 15" x 30" Acrylic on canvas. A Tiki-Art version of "Wanderer above the Sea of Fog" (German: Der Wanderer über dem Nebelmeer; also known as "Wanderer Above the Mist") a painting composed in 1818 by the German Romantic artist Caspar David Friedrich.

3.) "The Body Glove Sea Creature", 24" x 30" Acrylic on Canvas.

4.) "Two Tikis", 18" x 24" , acrylic on canvas

5.) "The Sea Witch", 24" x 30" Acrylic on Canvas.

6.) "Token Tiki on a Sincere-Blue Back-Ground", 24" x 30", acrylic on canvas.

7.) "Vacation Gone Wrong", Acrylic on (distressed) canvas 17" x 27", mounted inside Custom 33" x 26" Bamboo Box Frame, with Black Back ground.

Here's a look at the beach towels:

The Beyond the Reef Beach Towel

The Tiki Cat Beach Towel

The Moon of Manakoora Beach Towel

The Forbidden Island Beach Towel

Many of the paintings have been pre-sold, so call for availability. They have a good supply of beach towels, but the gallery has been steadily selling/taking pre-orders of them as well, (they even ship over seas). They are going fast, so if you really want one, or a set, contact the gallery now instead of later.

Aloha tiki Tribe,

Thank you all for making my July 20124 Art show at La Luz a hit. I was really sweating it out…I was fighting a legal issue of my art being stolen, - was distracted, not on the top of my game.

Luckily all legal things have worked out for the better, and we are past all that unpleasantness. I would like to thank everyone out there who took notice of my plight and made it known that they cared, that they did not approve of art being stolen and sold on the internet. It really made a difference. The voice of the people does count in America. Wrongs can be righted.

Before it all shook out , though I was scared. I was unsure, and I felt unready.
However, it seem the Show was very well received. There was even a "Bidding War" on a piece that was marked as "SOLD".

I mean… JEEPERS CREEPERS!

So, some swanky European Collector would not let the little fact that a painting was "sold" stop them from getting it. Prices were thrown back and forth. I talked to the first buyer, and things were all worked out to everyone's liking. (wow - I didn't even know stuff like that could happen! I'll never forget that!! )

Seems this is an important collector, & being in this person's collection could gain me attention I never had the luck of being the center of before.

Heck, I was just worried I would never get asked back to show at "La Luz de Jesus Gallery."

However, I am very happy to report they have asked me back!
I will again show my "Lurid Tiki-Art" at La Luz in 2016.
Whew!… I'm VERY happy about that, as I feel now I have a chance to create the TIKI ART SHOW I wanted to.

Attention is being paid to the up coming Tiki-Art Show in 2016. Please follow this link below to some News about the next Tiki-Art Show.

Every one… what can I say? It'll never be enough just to keep saying Thank you…but…Mahalo and ...THANKS AGAIN!
