Hello Tipsy! I've thought about doing a little selling thing in chicago,
now if only the Blasters were playing Fitzgeralds the same weekend.

It was a great day to dodge woodchips and we even accomplished a little bit.
After spending severals days studying, pondering, designing, and changing
my mind, I just decided to dig into the wood and see what happens. Here we
go...


So far it's a little bit tiki and a lotta bit "conga"....I imagine it will
turn out sorta wierd.
Happy carving.

Good guess Mess.....current thinking is that it will be a bird with
wings wrapped around the neck of the figure. It could become a
turtle if I screw up the wings...thanks for the suggestion.

I know critters popping out of the mouth are not especially common
in tikis....more prevalent in the png stuff. I guess that's sorta
where I'm headed.

Nice to see you!

& it was coming back up.

Another good suggestion....I could turn it into a chicken and
sell it to the local KFC.

yeah though the critters are usually crocodiles in PNG...
I was thinking about doing a mouth/croc thing myself, looking forward to seeing your stuff if you're heading that way!

Hey fellow tiki carvers, what's going on?
Finally a little update from the northwoods, a tiki with a birdy thing going on



Not quite finished, another round of sanding might get me there,
and perhaps a little more paint.
Otherwise, how about a shot of Petrie the Wonder Dog, she
hears you

And a nice Wisconsin sunset

Thanks for stopping in!

Digging the NorthWestern influences. Your finishes are so tight. Love seeing the sun shot too!

I'm pretty sure that happy hour with you and Will would be a
pretty good time, I would think that even Hulikau would be
tolerable. Doesn't look like it will happen this year, I've
got a piece of wood to "fancy up" a little bit.

Hello again, not sure if I will ever finish this carving. (Thanks for the motivational
push--AlohaStation.)
Shadow tests....



More work to be done, we'll have to see what happens. Still wrestling
with my final decision on stain.....

As Will would say,"your at a great place to start". "Carve Deeper" is my mantra now, sometimes, when its convenient, or I screw something up and need to cut it out. There is also the philosophy that no art is ever "done". Glad you took a another look
