Wow! Thanks so much Ken! I gotta say that I love that review. I was really close to doing the tiki in orange, but then I threw caution to the wind, and used the crazy green. Thanks a bunch!

Hey Mad Dog Mike- Thanks for the kind comp! The specks in the charcoal gray wall are composed of the silver leaf, just to give a sparkle to the painting.
Hey Robert - Have a great time! I wish I could be there. Thanks too for the kind words!

Here's a recent Johnny Cash piece of mine. It was fun to do - not exactly tiki, but fun! It's gold leaf and enamel on board.

New painting for Harold Golen's show July 14: Simian Spectacle. The title of the painting is: "Misfit Shriner". Thanks for looking!

Thumbs up, Sam!

I really dig the eyes, they set the tone nicely.

The "I WAS A" implies his carousing days are over, also being a reckless playboy must have taken a toll on his health, his bank account, his independence etc.

I can't help to think, is this statement a boast or a plea for redemption?

BRAVO! G

Thanks so much, Ken and TikiG! Hey Ken - I think he may have been MORE of a misfit than the typical shriner!

TikiG- I think our boy merely has a story to tell - a sort of testimonial about his worldly past and what he has learned from it all. He would probably not recommend that one lives the life he knew, but he did it his way, and wouldn't change a thing.

It's a great piece!!

Maybe saying misfit shriner, is like saying a smart professor, or an efficient secretary, or a corrupt lawyer.
