Zerotiki, finding a place to hang anything in our home is a challenge. Guess what we have the painting hung and it's beautiful and perfect. I hope you make it to the crawl this weekend and can view your painting in its new home. Hugs, Wendy

I would like to thank Hewey, for getting us all going, and all of the artists, who let me look at their work on this forum. A distinctly valuable experience.
...and extra hugs for Wendy!! YAY! I hope to make it to the swap to see Crazy Cap'n Hornbill in his new setting.
Cheers,
~Zero

Just received my bird from pennjones- It is awesome! Thank you!

Even cooler than in the photo. I hope you paint and sculpt more- you have a great style.

I'll send a picture when I hang it in my studio. Have a nice weekend, everyone.

First, let me say I'm way later than I planned posting pictures of what Beadtiki sent me, and I'm sorry for that, then let me say: Beadtiki's work is AMAZING! The detail is mind boggling... and the feel of these pieces is incredible. Thank you ! Thank you! Thank you! (I wanted to post of picture of me with the two, too cool items Beadtiki sent, but this stuff is too small or maybe I'm too big.)

Wow, that's some special bead work. Is that a zipper pull? Wendy

Ah no, the beadwork on the front of the bag sorta looks like a zipper, but this little pouch is open on the top. The palm tree "pull" is decorative. Not seen is a small loop attached to the back side. The beads are so heavy and they sorta slink in your fingers so that you get the sensation that the bag is made of metal. The bird is somehow stiffer and I plan to frame it.

ZeroTiki, now you get it. She's really good. When's the next swap and what will it be? Wendy

You guys are so sweet! I'm really glad you like 'em! I always think of those bags as feeling like lizard skin - smooth but textured - and cold!

My prize is...



Obviously I haven't found a place to hang it yet but I wanted to put it into some perspective. It is lovingly accompanied by two Sophista-tiki originals! I decided my living room is going to be the "local" art gallery - only my friends and family are allowed to show their art here, and my new birds are right at home!

I, too, am looking forward to the next swap - I just hope I have the time and energy to participate!

Finally finished my piece for AlohaStation & mailed it today. It was kind of hard to say goodbye to it. But I know that it will have a good home.

The detail work is wonderful on each piece. I love just looking at how you tied the bar stools and frames. The little mugs are so good, taking it all in at once it seems so real I'm ready to go hang out there. Excellent.

This year was terrific. Come on Hewey let's do it again. Wendy
