Wow, stunning, amate! Love the coloring and detail on the princess. You hit those out of the park man.

Will – creepy is what I was going for…

BigT. - I enjoy doing the heads just to attempt to convey personality, emotion etc. in the faces. No “Fine Art” here. I make primitive folk art just to keep myself entertained. Thanks for lookin’ in guys!

Finally getting back to work on this Moai. He’ll end up just over 4 feet tall. (and approximately 400 lbs. )

You're getting lazy. You just DREW the hands on. And you didn't even stain it!

I really like that guy and all, but,
his profile sure looks like Richard Nixon.

Damn it GROG!!! I can't slip anything past you. I did take your advice and followed your recommendations. I am still lazy however.
And yes, I will be putting on a topcoat. Just letting the stain rest for a few days first. I will also add a base to make him a bit more stable.

Will- Yes it's true but you know how much I enjoy doing the creepy stuff. For my next one, I'm thinking about a Michael Jackson nose. Now THAT'S creepy!

ATT - simple is often the best method. I am a simple man with simple abilities so it seems the way to go. Perfect, on the other hand, well...not so much. Thanks.

This is the classic Lay's potato chip. I started at the last page and couldn't stop. I looked at every single page. I laughed at GROG and the I'm not a crook Moai. I loved the frame around the mosaic. All the classic tikis are outstanding. I wish I had such wonderful backdrops for my ceramics. You must live someplace in Florida, my guess. I really enjoyed the photography of your tikis in beautiful spots. One looked like a crack in a wall with the 3 tikis standing there. I'm glad it didn't collapse burying your tikis forever.

Beautiful work, Wendy

Thank you all for your kind words. I have not used dark stain extensively in the past but it seemed appropriate for this piece. I used a Rust-oleum product called “Kona” which is a deep and rich brown. Never used it before but I will use it again especially on Moai.

I’m happy you stopped by for a look Wendy. I like the classic tikis a lot but I also veer off track a bit from time to time. I am influenced by all types of primitive art. And the photos are just part of the creative process for me and I enjoy making them. BTW, I live in Texas. The climate and vegetation along the coast is VERY similar to that of Florida. Thanks…

Big MO is finally complete!
