I am just beginning to realize how much you have going on in your work. Are those little fish I see? I admire your patience and your art.

Thank you very much nomolos!

tikigodz yes that's bamboo from a kind named tacuaron here, that has a much thicker wall than the normal one.
I'm using this two tools, and lots lost of time and patience, it takes me at list 30 hours to do the rough carving deep enough, and then at list an other 10 to make everything neat, and the burning and scratching part for the color.... way to much time, I know...but in a way is what make them extra special to me..
and I cut them with a hand saw (not the power tool)



Benzart thanks so much chief, very glad you dig!

congatiki thankyou very much, yes a lot lot of cuts went into this one, thanks for noticing

laojia thanks! great choice of music, Davis & Coltrane, it can't get any better than that, can it? Davis sound is very submarine to me too. it's sort of an honor to me, that this song pop into to your mind, because of this pic. I wouldn't choose it to wake up tough, you must be a very cool and calm person, i need more power in the morning, this is great to go to sleep, in my case. Thanks again.

Lake Surfer thanks very glad you like the theme!

MadDogMike thank you pal glad you like the detail and coloring tons of time went into this one!

amate thanks heres a better pic for you

look at it from right to left, I think you may be able to understand the design better this way, maybe? Thankyou very much for your kind words

Couldn't have said it better myself, perfection of creating beautiful works of art does take alot of patience which has to be mastered & not taken lightly. Your pieces are a testament to that perfection. Great job.

Thank you very much coconuttzo!

LLT thankyou! can you see the puffer fish winking at you? you are a big influence in my work, a very smooth one, i don't even notice it any more, it's like a part of me... but it isn't, so i want to stop for a minute, and thank you for all the inspiration you give with your wonderful art and personality. that shouldn't be taken for granted, even it flows so naturally that sometimes it does. The tiki world would be very different with out you. Thanks again for keeping up with your own battle and inspire so much
