I'm not likely to make it to Portland to see the Hapi Tiki exhibit but I can't wait to see the TO one in real life. I'm going to set up a card table near your painting and proudly tell everyone who looks at it "I know the artist. Do you want to take my picture with the painting?"

I told little lost tiki (Ken Rusik) that I would like to stare into his eyes to absorb some of his creative genius. This is what he wrote back on his thread. I stole it and put it here so that I can read it 100 times a day!

Hello Wendy
my sweet art-sister!
I would love to just gaze into your beautiful eyes as well..
i LOVE staring contests! it's like you're gazing into a watery viscous soul of another human...
and with artists,,,it's like BAM!
As for creativity...you are the queen
All those Bobs.....incredible!
but the most inspiring thing is
that you got OTHERS involved as well
and created some of the Best and funnest and TRUE ART Tiki Bobs! You have SO much Heart
but the thing that is so wonderful about YOU
is that you not only have HEART for your artwork
but you have heart for all of us misfits!
Keep on keeping on Baby! I'll be seeing you soon at OASIS!

If you haven't been watching his thread of art now is the time to start. You'll be smiling the entire time. His art is full of creative tiki joy.


dartharnie I didn't know there was such a thing as a Spy stare down and you are right my painting will have one. Cool!

Tiki G don't you hope they find Nellie in our lifetime or maybe life on another planet. Really Cool. PS the lava on my Frankoma bowl is nothing like Gecko'z close up but my photo even scared him! His secret for Fat Lava is safe.

MadDogMike the swap you are running is going to win the race. Thank you always for watching and helping me with my art.

It looks as if I will open the 3rd Wish list for orders in early August just before Tiki Oasis. I am working on a few items ahead of time that have deadlines. I'll share those along the way.

This is for bavtech - Mahalo Tiki - 1 down 4 to go.






Now its time to get back in the garage with the cat birds and Dan. There are molds to open and tikis to clean.

Cheers, Wendy

Hi Wendy,

The whole cat/bird thing is hysterical! My parents' neighbors had a cat that looked like yours. She had 6 toes and was named Chaos.

So sad to see Dan's beautiful purple bowl shattered on the ground. But I do agree that 2 of the little Bobs look undamaged from the front. I'm thinking you might incorporate them into another project.

The thought of another Wendy original mug from one of those blanks has my mind reeling! I will have to think hard to come up with an idea this is worthy!!!

I love the carving work on that Mahalo Tiki Bob. It's so textural, I just wanna touch it.

Hi everyone I'm having fun in the evenings catching up on some Bob's. bavtechs order is for five and as of today 3 are finished. I have mugs to do for a wedding and then the Oasis painting. After that will be the Sacramento Ohana crawl mug and the third Wish List. Keeping busy with tikis is nothing but fun. Thank you all for joining in with your comments which are desert for me.

Atomic Tiki Punk my Bobs are not all level but I try, he he

LoriLovesTiki I love that bird and now there are two. It sounds like a tropical rain forest full of bird sounds. The purple bobs from the bowl were positioned to look their best. They had to be thrown out.

hang10tiki I'm loving your Frankoma carving. I wish it to be cold in Las Vegas so you can finish it soon.

Holler Waller hi from Bob land.

Whystler welcome to all the fun. We here love step by steps so show more on your thread. I would love to see how it layers.

Here are the next two mugs for bavtech



Free hand while watching 2 two hour episodes of Dateline.





Flames while watching ET and the Bachelorette.





Time to play with clay, Wendy

Those new Bob carves are incredible my dear!
The Spy painting is looking great... Once that second fellow is in there
i bet the tension between the two will be physically tangible!

And the What makes your Tiki Happy painting makes me smile ear to ear!
and you've even put a Sea Monster in there! I think artists should ONLY paint when they're happy. (or at least MATCHING the mood for the painting they're working on)
Anyways...that painting is sure making me happy! the mermaid's smile is so sweet and inviting!

These two shows are gonna Blow folks out of the water!
So many great artists involved!

Hugs art-sister!

Hi Friends, what a great way to start the day...messages for me to read from all of you. Here are my answers.

bavtech I'm finished carving until they dry. Then I'll run a tool through each line to pull out any little clumps of clay that didn't fall out. Sanding and then bisque firing. Glazing comes after all of that. It is a long process. Below are your last two mugs. I'm happy you are happy.

little lost tiki I don't know where you find the time to visit my thread. But don't stop, never stop, never ever. The Bobs are fun to do and I never have a plan they just happen. You mentioned the mermaids smile well what I keep thinking of is all your art that puts a smile on my face. I am looking forward to being in the shows with you. My next Spy steps are shown below.

hang10tiki good thought. bavtech how about two more? Actually he's taking these to Oasis to sell at his booth. He represents Gecko and lots of artists. It will be fun to see some of my work on sale at the event and I don't have to man a booth.

HB Tiki Roge is casting my puffer fish. As soon as he has enough done to make a mold worthwhile I'll go to Grass Valley to pick them up. I plan to make many puffer mugs and bowls in the future. What ever I do I'll post it here.

Beachbumz fire and flames. I'll eventually do one with the flames in 3D. I need to check up on your work which is beautiful and perfect.

Spiked I think this is your first post on my thread. Welcome and thank you. Please come again.

Progress Report:

We continue to pour each day for the upcoming 3rd Wish List. That keeps us busy for part of each day.

Spy/Tiki painting for Oasis.

I'm working on the Spy's shirt and trying to sand a line out of the face. When painting are layered you can get unwelcome lines and bumps where you don't want them. I will continue to sand and paint until the area where the face goes is smooth. Thank you MadDogMike for reminding me to watch out for this problem.

I cut out the shirt and used a gold pen to draw it on the canvas.

Here I'm sanding out the horizon line that has crossed his face.

The shirt and cuffs are close to done. I always keep fine tuning.


bavtechs last two mugs.












I hope to "read" from you soon, cheers, Wendy
