There's no such thing as too much fun. And I'm a GOOD influence. Here's my secret...

Bourbon > Rum

And be sure to check out Tonga Tom's pictures on the previous page. Excellent as usual !!

Thanks for the photos, Tom. We had a blast as usual so thanks to all who made this show possible. And a big tip of the topknot to Senior Grog for setting it all in motion.

I had been planning on going, but I there was a scheduling conflict with my wife's annual family reunion. But I will post my meager pieces here, if somebody expresses interest I may be coaxed into putting them up on eBay.


Stylized Moai Mask
Hydrocal casting w/ acrylic paint
Approx: 12"H x 3.75"W x 1.5"D




Moai Head Figurine
Very low fire clay (bake in oven) w/ acrylic paint
Approx: 4"H x 1.8"W x 2"D




Sleeping Moai Figurine
Very low fire clay (bake in oven) w/ acrylic paint
Approx: 2.5"H x 4"W x 2.5"D





I was very sorry to have missed what looks to have been a great evening with a fun crowd. Hopefully next time I can make it.


Bear

Finally a moment to sit down,

On behalf of the Tonga Hut, Thank You all for attending the Mad, mad, world of "Moai Madness" It was one amazing day! We had friends traveling from near and far in attendance from Palm Springs and San Bernardino-Riverside Counties to the Beach Cities how wonderful to see you all. Mahalo's to all the brilliant artists and craftsmen, you all had the crowd clamoring for first dibs wow! Down side for me being behind the bar is, I don't have the opportunity to view all the art on display, by the time I can sit down to enjoy it's sold.

Special thanks in my heart today, to Grog-Ernie Keen curator. Ernie, you bring pure joy to our world of art, thanks for bringing your heart to the table, we love you Grog. To my boss, Jeremy Fleener who just let's us run with ideas and is always open to our thoughts and crazy shenanigans, thanks Boss for lovin' us and all you do...
Thank you again for attending good friends and Thank You Artists! See you all soon!

still thinking back to the great time I had, meeting so many cool folks, enjoying the exotic sounds and flavors as well as seeing all the beautiful art!
Thanks Grog, Kelly, artists and everyone who made it out!

LushGirl, thanks for "filling in the gaps" with your photos! I didn't get as many snaps of the artwork as would have liked. GROG was a little upset with me, but half the mugs were gone by the time I got there.

Man, GROG really got me excited about the idea of Tiki Paint-By-Numbers art. You know, for those of us that don't have his crazy-good art skills.

Maybe that'll be the next show you put together, GROG?
