A picture of Sven with one of my mugs was in a newspaper article.
Thank you LiddleLola and Mahalo Tiki for letting me know. Wendy

AtomicTikiPunk isn't that right ATP?
Kele Hale Tiki knew that Maddy would like her creatures smiling. He knows a lot about Maddy.

The weekend continues and I've been painting. Cheers, Wendy

I keep wanting to wish you luck, but then I remember that you did this over a month ago. I'm loving the layout on the second mug. Same general idea, but the flow on it is great.

I meant to tell you yesterday how much I was enjoying the painting. Love all the reds!

GROG I bet that made him smile.

VampiressRN I hope you got the secret message. Thank you we keep trying.

littlegiles thank you I was really happy that the sea horses were a pair since traditionally the are sets of 3 and 2 is better than 1.

I worked all day on the painting. The publicity man for Oasis wants finished works today. Oil Painting works better for skin but I'll keep trying. Maybe I'll finish today. I also need to wash a kiln load of ceramics. A busy day is ahead of us.

Painting for Tiki Oasis 13

I've always found copying harder than just making one up. I have fun using McTiki's tikis for my paintings each year so I keep working to copy them. Photos help me identify errors. Here the eye on the right is all wrong and so is the nose.

The best part about these paints is that you can cover your errors and do it again. I save all my plastic can lids and use them as disposable pallets.

I covered over the bad parts with the background color and worked forward.

This time I used tape to mark the center of the nose.

Not done but better. I'll come back to the tiki later today.

Now it was time to start on the hula girl.

I just keep doing layers of different colors or the same color with others added.

The fire is behind the girl so I have to work out another light source for her.

It is a woman, I have not started on the chest yet!


Maddy's mug design by Hale Tiki

Once Maddy's mug was dry I sanded it.

I didn't want to fire up the kiln for only one mug so I made a few more Bob's while hers dried. They all went into the kiln together.

Fired.

Two days later I was able to wash them and examine each area to make sure nothing had cracked or come off.

At every turn there was success!






Now the mug must dry and then it would be time to glaze.

I'm running out of time! I'm referring to finishing my painting today so I've got
to sign off here and squeeze out those tubes. Cheers, Wendy

Truth is I was in Tiki Prison.....then had to use an alias to clear my name
at which point I was then granted the right to use my actual name again of ATP

But I met other exiles like "Tiki-Bong" in the Tiki wastelands
a struggle that left us scarred & opinionated, yet still standing

So wherever you find indifference & mediocrity, you will find us, bad attitude and all....

But if it is improper use of English & bad spelling, well that will be Grog, standing just over your shoulder
pointing out your mistake......in the night.

All of us say nice mug Wendy!

Wendy ... your painting is amazing ... And, you sure have perseverance ... doing a mug twice is real dedication .. I would have been looking for an easier way like under-glazes or doing the background with a matte glaze that wouldn't run so much. You are a good friend to Hale Tiki ..... I can't wait to see the final mug ...

Atomic Tiki Punk aka Chuck Tatum aka Bong. You left our your tiki prison number.
Hale Tiki and I both thank you, his vision my hands.

Gene S Morgan I'm so glad that the response to the painting has been good, thank you.
For Hale's mug I did as requested and from now on I'll do what is going to work as you'll see your suggestions would have saved me lots of work.

I have to leave for two appointments so I'm going to just post a photo of how my painting looks right now. It is far from finished. I lost all the in progress photos from the past two days so this is all I have. I still need to figure out a light source for the woman.



Dan wants a vote. He wants her topless. I say she'd have a better chance of selling at Oasis with a lei over those points. I need your opinions.






I'll be back this afternoon with glazing photos of Hale Tikis mug for Maddy.

Cheers, Wendy

It should be noted at this juncture that upon completion of mug number 1 for Maddy, which failed on a few grounds, Wendy had a new mug sculpted, and photos emailed to me in the blink of an eye. Before I even got the first mug, or knew there was going to be a second mug, there in my email was photos of a second mug!

Wendy is a tiki MACHINE. And the mugs are in a very, very good home where they will be treasured for ever and ever and ever and ever and...

I think most Tiki Oasis goers are mature enough to handle an uncensored hula girl (with a few exceptions). In my opinion, you should leave it uncensored. But I do understand if you think it should have a lei on her. I can see if someone wanted it for their dining room, they might want it censored. Most home tiki bars are not meant to be "kid friendly" or at least not catering to children. Not that kids shouldn't be taught about nudity in art at an early age...

I think it looks great and it will be a perfect addition to the Oasis, no matter what you choose!
