MadDogMike I think those were pointing the way to the WC. I didn't pick one up to check out what you were wondering.

Badd Tiki yes but we are already senior citizens with a short time left on this planet. I'd trade in the fun for a lot more years to make (did you mean severed head) mugs. I bet you're young.

tigertail777 WC will always mean Wendy Cevola to me even if the rest of the world thinks it means Water Closet.
We loved seeing your painting inside of the Egyptian Theater, that was special.
Dan said he wants to go to the Pancake Mill next time.
I haven't moved in with CY but we hugged him a lot more at Tiki Kon.
I'm excited to see your next painting take shape and color. The paint is happy to be used.

hang10tiki (:

Beachbumz I'm so sad to miss you both. I think we can fix that in the future. Stay Tuned.

==========================================================================================


Our trip to Tiki Kon continues. We traveled outside of Portland to visit the terrific carver CY. He has a carving thread that you can check out but I'm going to post some photos here of his work. Oregon continues to be beautiful. We turned off the main road and took this drive up to his home.


I love to hug my friends. It gives me a lot of joy. All the tikis you'll see are his creations.


Look how many great tikis are next to CY and Dan.


CY's work is very recognizable and totally fun. I played croquet when I was young.


Next to join the party was tigertail777. He was wearing the puffer fish necklace I gave him. I've forgotten the dogs name.


He was kind enough to bring his newest painting so I could see it up close. He is just so good at movement and expression. Another great painting.


CY took us on a tour of his property. We crossed this bridge and entered Frog Island.


This was such a highlight of our trip. Friends, art and beauty.


Here and there are saw more CY creations and then sadly it was time to leave.


On our last trip to Tiki Kon Dan was thrilled to find a Moai set of a fork and spoon. This time we found a Kava Kava Man set.


The next day we visited relatives.



Next up will be our hunt for more tikis and the Tiki Kon event.

Cheers, Wendy

Looks like a great trip, Wendy! Cy's an awesome guy and makes some pretty rad tikis! I had the pleasure of vending next to him at Caliente this year. Enjoy the rest of your trip and have a great time at Tiki-Kon!

Great photo report as always Wendy 'n' Dan... and hey! I am in it! Oh, the little doggie's name is Cha Cha, but I call her "Shoe" 'cause she likes to nibble on my shoes when I am not looking.

Looking forwards to seeing more of the pics from Tiki Kon and what I missed out on this year. Somehow I am gonna make it next year come hell or high water.

Thanks Hang10, it's for sale if you want it!

Hi Wendy,

Just catching up with the last pics from your trip. I'm proud to have gotten a shout out! Your picture of NJ was the shore and it looked like the barrier island I got married on, Long Beach Island. I live more inland. If you had had a longer layover in Philly we could have met up. One day I'll come to the West coast. Maybe next year's Oasis.

Based on your comment to Scott, I think the next Dan and Wendy trip is to Hawaii!

Those kickstarter mugs are AMAZING! and I'm always jealous of Dan's finds. I've never found a tiki in the wild.

Oh, and Jon - LOVED your pics! The Place of Refuge was one of the highlights of my trip last summer. And I'm jealous you got to see so many turtles....

TikiRootsRocka he is and we did. I just saw your latest post on facebook. People think I work hard but you really impress me with all that you have accomplished. You inspire me!

hang10tiki seeing CY's place of refuge was a highlight of our trip. Hanging out on Frog Island was super fun especially when finding a tiki here and there.

tigertail777 Tiki Kon was fun but the music was so loud that I couldn't stay and when I did I had my fingers in my ears. I recently read that this generation will be the deaf generation and that's proving to be true. Because of this I doubt that we will attend again. We couldn't enjoy the entertainment.

Cha Cha Shoe was very well behaved and fun to meet.

LoriLovesTiki it was fun to tell Dan you were down there someplace as we flew over. We just watched the first issue of The Strain and now air flight seems like scary fun. We are skipping Tiki Oasis this year but I hope to go next. It would be great to meet up there.

You would make a good detective. We recently figured out that the tikis in the wild are in junk shops rather than in antique stores. That looked like a junk shop from the parking lot. There were washers out front. Inside they had everything. I wish I'd noticed the bird on Dan's head and not cut it's top off.

==================================================================

Sorry for skipping some days. I allow myself to have diet cola's on vacation so I can stay up later but when we get home I go cold turkey and I always get a caffeine withdrawal headache. I can't look at the computer until it's gone. Today I'm ready to get back to work. But first here is the end of our trip to Tiki Kon in Portland Oregon.

We went to this event last year and decided to go again.


Outside Dan found this skull with his favorite cracked glaze. It lights up.


Inside he found this vase. It was enough tiki for him to buy it. That's all we found in 1400 booths. We had a good walk.


We went in search of other antique stores and on our way we passed The Alibi tiki bar.


Dan really liked this black velvet but it costs too much to bring home. Yippy!


We saw these antiques. Check out the prices.


We passed the other side of The Alibi as we headed back to Portland.


In the lobby of the hotel I ran into Jeff the editor in chief and Amy the Publisher of Tiki Magazine.


Outside we ran into Cathi, Margie, HB Tiki and kingstiedye. California showed up for Tiki Kon!


Marketplace opened and Dan went hunting.


Van Tiki made the mug for the event. He and his wife came clear from Oahu, Hawaii. HB Tiki stopped for a chat.


Dan found some really good albums at the sale.


I stopped to visit with Miles and Paul of Munktiki.


Amy stopped to purchase one of their custom monkey mugs.


There were new mug makers and


Deadhead Rum was there with the new Tiki Farm head for sale.


This is Stan he's new to the Tiki Event and he had done some fine paintings of Portland Tiki places.


We attended the lectures by Jeff and Marina. That's not Jeff with her.


Rugby Matt and dang it I can only remember the second guy and an alleged ax murderer. Long story.


This is Jeff showing a album of mermaids that he had borrowed.


At the lecture we ran into Moai Mike and our trip companion Polynesian Paddy.


We went to the restaurant for lunch.


We always have fun with our tiki buddies.


Justin entertaining by the pool.


The alleged ax murderer with a Munktiki Zombie Head. He got number 13.


Marina posed just for you.


Jason won the tikitender competition and the $1000 prize.


Good job of ice carving for the event.


Rugby Matt and Chop Top were bartending.


A lucky raffle winner got a custom event mug presented by the Mai Kai Mystery girl Marina.


We headed home the next morning and missed the home tour. We heard it was wonderful. At least Dan got to try a German pancake at Elmer's. It was yummy.


We stopped in Eugene and I found a light that at $75 I couldn't pass it up. Now I have to find a place to hang it.


Didn't fit but Dan can always dream.


We visited my nephew Jon who is now a full time minister in Eugene Oregon. He is my sweetheart.


Now we are home and it's time to get back to work. Thank you for the visit. Wendy

LoriLovesTiki I feel like I do know you. When I read your posts I can picture what you look like too.
I hope you make it to Tiki Oasis the biggest tiki gathering in the world.

hang10tiki it's so nice to have you back home. That pancake is a killer with butter, lemon juice and powdered sugar on top. I did sneak a few bites.

Keaka-tiki the noggin with the fez? I wish we had met. I know there are many people who read this but that have never posted. I would like to see a photo of every reader. That would be a blast. Please post a face showing photo here when you have the chance.
You'll be a friend from then on.

=============================================================================

I'm working on the five last special kickstarter mugs. I'll have photos soon. Meanwhile just before we left for Tiki Kon I got a good amount done on the painting for the Alien Tiki Swap. For fun my alien is the Goof from the top of the Bali Hai in San Diego. We see it every time we go to Tiki Oasis. I've put him on his home planet. He is not the statue he is alive and has both his eyes.


First I printed a photo of the Goof in the size I wanted for my painting.


I added another planet in the sky.


I cut the hat out of the picture and outlined them onto the canvas. I did the same for the face.


Next I found paints that were the right colors or I mixed my own. I started filling in the outlines.


This hat has a lot of colors.


I drew more detail onto the hat.


I filled it in with yellow paint.


Another view without the glare.


It's fun to paint and so much easier than ceramics. I just love to do both. Cheers, Wendy
