Joy and I never really took a honeymoon so we decided to spend some time in Maui before the bundle arrives. We're looking forward to a completely different environment than asphalt and concrete buildings! Here's a few TIKI sketches to tide you over until we get back.

We did do the nose. And the hat...BUT SHE IS A WITCH!!!

You'd think that the first week of an artists two month hiatus would explode into a frenzy of painting and drawing.......but nooOOOoo. So far the first three days has been an annoying exercise in cleaning , reorganizing the studio, and throwing out crap loads of garbage I've been hanging on to for years! I really had a hard time beginning work surrounded by chaos. So in the meantime here's an old sketch that reappeared in the madness. It's a sketch for a painting I never started. In fact the halftone drawing is on my website but I always liked this sketch because it was drawn pretty fast and is full of movement and fluidity. Now I have to keep all the same movement in the final painting. Whenever I get to it that is.
