It has been a busy summer. I have spent a lot of it adding a beach to my yard.

I started by building a third waterfall.






I liked how different the Pirate Tiki had been. I wanted to continue and make something a little different. I am a big James Bond fan and I got an idea after watching live and let die. I wanted a tiki to place at the base of the waterfall so I designed a Voodoo themed tiki. I liked how other artists have used colors such as greens and blues in their designs. I figured I should take a risk. I found out that Lowe's offers a Cabot stain in blue. I designed this guy with a snake that is wrapped around his waist. I gave him scales and tried out the blue stain. He slightly yellowed after I added a spar urethane to him.




I added a few black scales


I also gave this one a voodoo themed hat.


and a voodoo doll



here he is



I also was intrigued by a Brad Parker skeleton tiki sketch. I wanted to somehow incorporate a similar idea. I decided rather than just make a skeleton like tiki I would include it on the back.



I also wanted to make a better surfboard than one I had previously made. I am finding that they are much easier to sand!!!!!
