For fun I've started a mug of Gecko. It just has a base coat right now. On the other side is his face as a shrunken head. I'm learning how to add photos and this is a practice post for me. What do you think can you recognize him at this point? Wendy

Wendy, I agree, this IS Creepy, Beautiful job on the Gecko side! The Shrunken head side is too realistic looking, you sure it is only clay? Excellent job!

I live for these comments, thanks guys. I can't wait until I make Gecko's mini me come to life! I'll keep you posted on the progress. Hey everyone please check out Andy Landry loves tikis. I bet there are a lot of extras in everyones collections that could liven up his bedroom. Please.

Let me know if you need their address, Wendy

Hey, that is really nice work. It is TOO CREEPY for sure. The shrunken head part that is. Keep us posted so we can see the finished piece. I also want to know if there will be just one. SWEET.

Hi Everyone, I spent today emailing my buddy Gecko while working on the mug of his mug. It's mostly done except for his face which is still a base coat. I tried to paint the body in Gecko style since this is a tribute to my favorite artist. So what do you think, is there something I need to work on besides his face? I also am showing a painting I did for Dan on a pineapple bowl. I've done several and last night on general tiki I saw another artist doing them as well. You can find his by searching pineapple bowl. Thanks for looking, Wendy

Wendy, when can I get one of those? I have an electric turntable that I can mount a weather-proof version(virgin?) of that to scare... umm I mean to keep the neighborhood pets and children out of the yard. Freddie

Here is my statue that is a likeness of Gecko. Whenever I do a person I see the imperfections in my work. But a teacher once told me that if you try to make everything perfect you will never finish anything. So the time to say it's done has come. Wendy

Great Job!
