Cypress wood.



I missed this one. Very cool! It's got a real old school vibe to it.

Yes he does.

The Cypress wood can be really difficult to work with but will last ad infinitum!
I sold him already.

I dig the compliments!

The Old School Vibe. Chisels, rasps, saws, Martin Denny, Exotica,Bamboo shacks, any wood you can find... just hook into the spirit and the Tiki just becomes...
The hands give birth. The adopted parents give it a name and thier love will give it a soul.

Saying Aloha to Art Snyder is hard. Good to see all of you there and see how much the man was really loved by so many.

My carvings are very minute compared to his creation of a Paradise where we could go to escape. I have been so lucky to be a part of it. Remembered forever, Aloha until we meet again, Art.

Sending a message in a bottle.

Working 10- 14 hours day out here in the desert and looking for a place to carve in what little spare time I have. I have a carving in it's early stages sitting on the lift cart.

Of course I miss my afternoons at Don's. The people who come by and say hi. The happy purchasers who give my creations a name and a soul. Hopefully, it won't be long. Some things make life a little more worth living. For me, artwork is a purpose. A business of happiness, inspiration and contribution.

My envy to those active, my gratitude in knowing it isn't over yet.
