Tikilongbeach, many thanks for the kind compliments! I'm going to try and dig up a few more pics from last year to post up... I've got some other trophy/award ones from Ohana that are neat. I'm hoping to get out for a ITMP at Don's very soon... I'll keep you updated if you'd like to get some pieces in person!

This is a piece I started around the beginning of the new year, and just recently finished up. Its a mask inspired by the work of the Gogodala People, Western Province of the South Coast of New Guinea. It features open work in the eyes and mouth and is hand painted. Very similar colors to that which the Abelam People use, which is what attracted me to it. This piece measures in at 38.5" H x 10.5" W.

Thank you Jon, appreciate the compliment! Mainly surface carves on this piece and a lot of painting, but a very enjoyable piece to create.

I don't know what it is about these panels, but I love carving and painting them. Maybe its the colors? Maybe its the intricate details Maybe the assortment of Hornbills? Changing things up and shrinking things down... this Abelam Male Ancestral Panel is smaller then the last two I have done, challenging to paint and carve, but no less detail packed then the larger ones.

20" H x 11" W.

Just finished painting this one this morning, carving was last week.

Nice top quality carves! You could sell these at the art museum gift shop...now that I think about it, you could sell your work just about anywhere you chose.

amate, thanks a bunch for your kind compliments! PNG work has really taken a hold on my carving the last few years, and rather then wain has strengthened it's grip. There just such a wide variety of subjects, clans, tribes, art, etc. that can be found in what's really a small land mass compared to the rest of the world. Having a lot if fun with it all. I enjoy watching all of your work also, you've been around the block a few times and it shows in your clean carves.

Really like the New panels Lake!

PNG stuff is my favourite too, as you say there's so much variety from a single island...

Mess, thanks a bunch for the kind compliment!

I'll admit, half a decade ago it took me a little bit to warm up to PNG art... It wasn't "tiki" as I had thought tiki was... The common Hawaiian carvings that we all were first attracted to. But as I explored further, it really opene up a new and interesting world for me.
