Geez, you're right! I didn't realize I made such a horrible goof. Shows what I know. I'm just an ignorant artist that likes what I see and I don't plan on trying to convert anyone.

Thanks for the compliments. I'll do my best to be humble and try not to offend.

Beachin,

Let us know next time you are traveling through NO and we will see about opening Tonga Isle (name of home bar) to you. I have been trying to convince some fellow home bar owners to do a crawl but never been able to pin down a day to do it.

Thanks, Tiki410! I told my husband about your offer, and we are definately due to head your way. I have an art show that I'm installing on Thursday, but after that, we can possible find some time to swing down there. My email is posted in here, so let's hammer out details.

I managed to live through mid-terms, so I have stuff to celebrate (until finals at least)! At any rate, I would love to meet real life people from this site. I often stay up all night long reading posts on here, trying to learn the ways of the tiki. It's an neverending quest for enlightenment.

Thanks! It's great to BE a female artist. I waited 20 years to be able to go back to college and major in fine arts. I love every minute I spend in the studio and love sharing my work with others.

Everyone here is so welcoming! It makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside! I only hope that I can meet you of you in real life someday.

I'm BAAAAAAAAACK!

Been out of the loop for the last four months working on my solo show, and then doing the commissions that were ordered as a result of that show. Whew. I'm almost caught up!

I'm glad to be back in the forum. It's gonna take me a while to catch up, but I will.

Hope you all had a great holiday season. I know I did. I only have one more semester to go before I complete my associates degree then I'm outa here towards sunny Florida (I think), or San Diego (second choice).

I'll post pics soon of my latest endeavors. Just gotta finish up some stuff on my computer tonite.

I've made a post in marketplace, too. Ugh!

Just a shout out to all you folks out there! HEY!

Ok Here's a pic of one of the pieces I just finished on commission for a patron. Yes, sadly, it is an ashtray, but I tried to hide that fact as much as possible. I was given complete artistic lisence.

A thumbnail of the whole thing:



This is a fun closeup of the detail on the natives:

Very nice work, Beachin!

I have a couple of creations posted here, but nothing so creative. I like the mugs with the red tikis on the front. The flowers they're holding are a cool idea. Let's see more!

Thanks. I've got a few pics here of stuff that's not yet on my website (except the pirate mugs--a favorite!)

Pirate Mugs say Will Pillage for Rum on the back



Little Chief



Google Eyes (for lack of a better name)



Kiss Me!

These are HORRIBLE pictures, but I thought some of you might like a lady with big boobs and a grass skirt! This is the closest I get to a sculpture!

I call her Muppet With Tits!

I'm sorry I fell out of touch. I was doing a solo show and some work in the studio and lost track of about 4 motnhs somewhere in there! I'm alive now...working on new stuff.

I haven't been to NO in sooooooo long and am due for some R&R! My college semester starts next Tuesday. EEK! I'm not ready for that.

Let's try to get together sometime, shall we? My husband, Joe, was excited when I told him about you, but that was a loooong time ago.

I didn't want you to think I was rude! I'm back now.

Kimberly

I finally got a picture of this guy to share with y'all. This guy guards my room. He ain't doing a too good of a job of guarding me, but I think he's OK with letting the booze slip in from time to time.

He's a multimedia sculpture I made when I my teacher told me to "go over the top." I had to disassemble his crown cuz it got so beat up, but he'll be alright just like he is. He even has toenails, a detail most people overlook!

He's been in the family since last spring, so I guess this is his introduction to (ahem) polite society. Well I drunk posted him on bilge cuz it went with whatever line of thought was going there, but that doesn't count!

Kahuna (I refer to him as mini-me)
