Awesome two cents! I'll take some of that.. nothing in nature has perfect lines - I'm reminded every time I look in the mirror I tend to be my own worst critic and this takes a load of my mind.

Conga I've been through your thread several times and I dig your work! This is nice piece congrats.

I have beat myself up over the lack of the symetry I sometimes (ok.....everything I have created) I have instead focussed more on the soul of the piece. I'm. Diggin the Congas work! Full of genuine personality that is unique to you. Excellent!

Mahalo

Symetry is over rated!

Hi everyone, one of our family members is taking the big step of moving to
California, so a few friends gathered in the backyard to wish him well.


I'm sure he'll find a nice home out west, but we're going to miss gazing at him.

Now I gotta get to work and finish some stuff!

They don't seem to be too happy. I think they're sneering at him for daring to leave the family. And maybe there's just a hint of jealousy?

Hello Big T and Hiltiki, and everyone else!

Boy it sure is hot in northern Wisconsin. The tikis are snarling
because they ARE jealous, they think it will be cooler in
California.

He does look "peaceful" Hiltiki...I'm hoping he will bring a sense
of peace and serenity to his new home

Hello everyone, it's been "back to work time" up here in Northern Wisconsin.
I'm just about finished with the previous Lono (that comment keeps the thread "tiki" but
it looks like I might push off in a different direction.

Somehow I was referred to a collector of totem poles and Indian carvings (his
backyard has 15-20 large and beautiful totems) and it looks like he's going to
purchases several pieces, including my Cigar Store Indian from a few years ago.

So that pushes me back into the totem field, as you can see from this piece in
progress







It's an eagle, holding a salmon, with a frog tossed in for good measure. I think I
will find some space for a tiki too. Thanks for looking in.

Hello friends....
It's been a great summer except for injuring my shoulder in a bicycle accident,
but we are on the mend. Here are a few progress pics of the latest effort,
a few figures based on NW Coast totems....



Time for the next stage of sanding....and then we'll splash
a little color on it.
Thanks for looking!
