Deadline has come and gone, time was my enemy. No excuses, yet I find myself away again on travel assignment tonight. I offer up photographic evidence of my efforts taken this early Sunday morning Nov 1st:

+ A Painted Sunset...

This special sunset dedicated to my good pal BAY PARK BUZZY, who has provided countless sunsets to us all in Carving Forums. A colorful, warm and glowing sunset; in tribute and remembrance to BUZZY's faithful companion KIVA the wonderdog! Rest easy ol'girl.

++ A Hut...

A single spirit lodge jutting skyward... a building inpired by a Mauna Loa menu cover.

Add a little hidden LED flicker flame light...

Add even more special effects LED black lights...

A Canlis-inspired fern tiki and lots of tropical greenery...

+++ A DIORAMA +++

Encase all of these exotic elements inside a wooden shadowbox and glass framed lid...

Then finish with a Seattle: Polynesia-inspired, Claybord acrylic & ink painted "menu cover" to provide a secret hideaway for this wall display.

Classic Menu Art Poly-Pop Inspired Graphics...with a hidden diorama display... now THAT's TIKI??!!

So "IF" my fellow Swap-mates deem my efforts worthy of submission... allow me to participate in the Tiki Art Swap... I require an extension to finish work and complete details?? "IF" allowed to participate, I'll gladly ship my artwork to its new owner by the 20th of November.

Mahalo'z for consideration...sorry I'm late....this was A LOT OF FUN!!!

Very Impressive Jonesey! What a fantastic idea you came up with. I for one would be quite happy to wait until you were able to complete it should I be the lucky name drawn. In fact, I have a room that it would look perfect in.
Therefore, 8FT says "Let Jonesey in!!!!" Thanks for sharing.
I once was lost.....but now I'm found.....
