We were on 5 North by 4 am and made it home in record time 2 PM. I'm ready to go to bed and then back to work tomorrow!

What a great time spent with all my tiki buddies. I love these visits. Wendy

TIKI OASIS 17 THE ART SHOW. WE ALL SHOW UP TO POSE FOR PHOTOS. But first it was time to say hi to friends.

Go Go was bursting with joy to meet Daniel Mann. I'm glad I could capture the rapture in this photo.


Bullet, Dan, Woo Hoo and Soccer Tiki with his famous tongue.


MadDogMike


MadDogMike looking mad with little lost tiki aka Ken Ruzic. Look in the background for Woody and hang10tiki.


Tiki Ano and MadDogMike making their swap of art.


Time for the artists to line up. I just love being in these photos.


Afterwards I met Daniel Watson with his art piece.


Swen and I. He asked for a back rub and hang10tiki caught it in one of his photos. We have been friends a long time. Yep both guys.


Swanky. His book on the Mai Kai is wonderful to read.


John Moulder aks Ekem Bookem.


Big Toe.


We were asked to line up again so that Miss Tiki Oasis 17 could be in the photo.


Norm Daniels and I together with our art.


SHAG signing autographs.


We tried to have lunch at the HUNTER with Bullet but it was closed at lunch time so Bullet went back to Buzzy's and we went to the Islands and got to enjoy lunch with Scott and Brenda.


We were sitting near Dough Dohr and I got to meet him. We've been facebook friends but face to face is so much fun.


As we were leaving the hotel we ran into Mitch Tobias. He photographed out home in the past and we hadn't talked in a long time. He is in a band. Do you know the name?



The last walkabout. Dan stayed in the room to pack but I wanted one last chance to say hello and goodbye to friends.

I missed Gecko this time around. Alie and Kainoa.


The pool was still the active spot.


I had a long and lovely conversation with this gentleman but I've forgotten his name. Help?
He just contacted me through fb his name is Robert Mitchell. Another great guy for our tiki ohana!


In the background is Marina the fireeating mermaid.


Tiki AL.


I said to Bridgette Crawford lets look sexy. Well I think I will never be a pinup!


My first time meeting Eric the Red.


Farewell to Mary until we meet up back home.


Tiki Diablo.


Bamboo Ben.


Bosco.


First time meeting Roger Scott and his wife who is from the Solomon Islands. How cool is that?!


We finshed packing the car and were on the road home by 4 am. Sunday morning. We missed all the LA traffic.


We were so fortunate to have a wonderful family reunion and then a great Tiki Oasis. Our car went to critical overheating on the ride home. We had two hours yet to go but turning off the air conditioner and using the wind to cool us we made it home. So very lucky.

I will be back to work tomorrow but today we have a summer party with the rest of our family here in Sacramento.

Cheers, Wendy

Ack! Condolences on the car overheating, Wendy! That can quickly put a damper on a great weekend. I used to have a PT Cruiser as well, and the cooling fan going out was a common problem with those vehicles, I am given to understand. Like you, I managed to nurse it along with the AC off when moving fast enough on the highway. Here's hoping for a quick fix!

HopeChest I collect hugs and my collection grew huge this past week.

Prikli Pear my husband and I thank you so much for the information. Both times it set off the warning bell was when we went off the freeway for gas and then for food. So your story fits our symptoms. We are taking it in hopefully tomorrow. I'll let you know what happens.

WISH LIST #7 continues towards the end.

This Black Velvet Painting was the wish of Jeffery Bannow here on Tiki Central.


I print photos of the tikis in the best size for the velvet I will be working on.


Then I begin with each tiki.


I like to tip a tiki in each painting to give it movement.


I use the cut out template to outline the shape and then I go from there.


So many little lines of paint to go over and over again.


Once all the tikis have been blocked out with the first layers of paint I


can begin to paint the plants.


One at a time. These I like to complete


with all the layers of paint before moving on to the next.




This is very much like planning out a garden to grow into a beautiful place.


While doing the garden every so often I return to add more layers to the tikis. Here I added more orange.



I have made prints of each painting so that I make sure each one is different. I've done 2 for Tiki Oasis and 2 for the Wish List. I have one to do for Geoffrey Ramirez and that will end this Wish List #7.


I used a different Disney bird for this one since there was room and I try to change each picture.





I found a black bamboo frame. I once saw black bamboo growing on the island of Kauai. It's beautiful.


I sure would like to see where this has been hung. Hint Hint.

Think I'll stick to carving

Cheers

hang10tiki those are adorable. It's fun that you had this bonding experience with Bob!

Dan has placed your swap tiki and


the gift you brought to us at Tiki Oasis.


Thank you so much for both.

Wish List #7 the hardest project both in making it and in glazing it. This was made for Nelson Osorio.

I start by getting some of the glazes out.


I autographed the bottom and I will glaze over this to make it permanent. It is an under-glaze pencil.


Nelson requested pint fading into yellow for the inside of the bowl.


I tried to do this by blending the colors with my fingers. I glazed the outside of the bowl.


Risky, I hope it works. I glazed a blue green water around the mermaid.


Three layers for each with drying time between meant this took an entire day.



After it dried overnight I started again.


It wasn't easy reaching all the places needing glaze. I just kept at it.


After the mermaid was glazed I


Moved on to do the hair. Each girl has a different color. Same with the eyes.


Now it was time to do the skin. I do 4 to five layers with Duncan CN glazes.


Doing the girls I raised the bowl to eye level to save my back.


I did the shirts and added designs such as pineapples and


palm trees.


Now it dries and fires.


I had two tiny glaze skips so it fired twice but here it is all done and even shipped off.
























I'm so happy to have started the very last wish. It is for Gregory Ramirez and it is a black velvet in my Disney series.
It's gone very well.

Cheers, Wendy

I also keep an eye on facebook. I happened to run into the tiki exhibit at the Moshier Community Art Center put up by Kristina Worrell. I was thrilled to see that one of my Hot Tub Hula Girls was in the glass case. Kristina admitted that he covered the bare parts so that it could be displayed!










This was such fun to find. Wendy

hang10tiki me too!

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

WISH LIST #7 IS OFFICIALLY FINISHED WITH THIS LAST WISH COMPLETED JUST AN HOUR AGO. This black velvet has been painted for Gregory Ramirez. He is one of my Sacramento Ohana so I may not have to ship it and the mug.

Here are some of the steps from start to finish.





































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

I started pouring "parts" for the Wish List in June 2016. I started the Wish List #7 the Monday after the Sacramento Crawl. I have finished August 20, 2017 and that includes the 75 mugs for the crawl this October.

This week I will open the Wish List #8 for a couple of days for orders so that I can work on the binder and gathering information. I have begun to cast the "parts".

Cheers, Wendy

I finally had a chance to catch up on all the Tiki Oasis pictures - thanks for sharing them. Lots of good shots and it's fun to see the actual people behind the names I read here all the time. Just sad that I never managed to run into all you guys. Loved seeing all the art in person, though.

Congratulations on finishing Wish List #7 - so much work! Take at least a little bit of time off before diving into the next one, you deserve it.

Cheers!
