So, are you really locked in a room painting, like Mo Eye's thread claims? Will we get to see any in progress of Trader Hicks? I still am trying to figure out where your light sources will be... I'm dying to find out!

Howdy Thor!

Is it too late to play?!!

I love your idea... I was an Ag Major (Yep - I even learnt how ta change the oil on a combine!). I spent a coupla years living on my grandpa's old farm (in Utah - Not Kansas!)... I love the BAR'N TIKI idea. I started thinkin' about some of the "stuff" we had on the property: Old farm implements and a positively ANCIENT tractor (Don't recall the exact vintage or "make" - but it still ran, amazingly enough!). Had I been into Tiki at the time - I prob'ly would've tried to construct *something* out of the stuff that was strewn about the property!

So... Here is my "very rough sketch" of a Tiki Mask made from an old tractor grille.

My "inspiration" came from
www.tractorshed.com - a photo of an old 1949 Farmall Tractor - which wasn't TOO far off from what we had on the farm!

Not sure if you can do anything with it - I couldn't figure out how I'd make a "mouth" for the thing! But I figured I'd at least TRY to contribute!!!

Hope it's not too late!
