Hey all,

I'm just back from a long weekend in the North Florida woods. I just read BK's post about "logs with big teeth" and that all on TC should study and follow traditional designs. I'm tired from all the traveling and walking I did this weekend and want to think more about what he said, although this struck a chord with me. In the meantime I will not be posting on TC. Since joining in early summer, I've just been having fun, creating and carving, and trying to be supportive of others. I've enjoyed the comments and the positive energy from many of the folks here on TC. However, if this forum is to be limited to the handful of artists recreating historical designs, so be it. Later.....

-Gman

its all about you and what you think. I think that your tikis have gotten better and you seem to know what you like.

Bro-
Who gives a rats ass what was said. BK gets off by beating his chest and singing his own praises. I kind of weirded out when I read that too. Now he's back peddling the BS he first posted.
Ben doesn't talk that smack here and he in my opinion is the master carver on this forum. Get some rest and PM me tomorrow. Your carvings are incredible as always, be yourself.

Gman, there are many different perspectives here, and probably all are correct in some sense. look forward to seeing your new creations, as I do everyone else's. TC would be a poorer place without you.

Gman, what would TC be without all of the different perspectives and viewpoints? I don't think BK's comments were directed at you personally. I am leaning toward the more traditional as well, but that's a personal preference on what I like to carve. I for one like your stuff a lot and would hate to see you drop out.

G-man , Please feel free to email mail me pics of your carvings. I have enjoyed them. I too feel as though my posting of carvings is coming to a end.

Gman and Rodeotiki:

The whole point of this forum is to share ideas and that's what's happening.

For you to be artists and have exposure, you should learn to take any sort of critique that comes your way. You guys are developing your own style and are brave enough to share it. Don't be discouraged now.

Gman - Im not gonna guilt trip ya, or try and convince you should stay if you dont want to be here. But, I would love to see more of your stuff in the future.

If you dont post no more pics, thanks for the carvings man, the ride has been swell.

I like your tenacity and stuff, G, I always have. The point I made wasn't a directed one. Just a statement. We still need every hand on deck around here. Nothing to be sad or confused about.

GMAN-
I have always really enjoyed your posts and all of your stuff. Tiki's , Sharks, etc.!!! I really don't think anybody was trying to dicourage you and your work. I would definatly consider your Tiki's Polynesian Pop and thats what alot of us like around here!!! I like the traditional stuff too!!! There is so much here to learn and enjoy here at TC and I wouldn't let one persons opinion (or my own misinterpertation) make me ever leave!!! I'm staying here till the wheels fall off!!!! I hope you change your mind!!
Later,
Spermy
