Hope you enjoy these carved tikis from Oregon. Thanks mucho Hanford_Lemoore for the space to indulge.



" El Boracho"


"Flip" on the left and "Dick" His mouth and top light up with an eerie orange glow.


I think this was my third tiki done in about 2001. My 8 year old nephew asked me what his name was, but I did not have one. "How bout Hans?" The kid is brilliant.


Tommy, Mehevi, Toma, and Whitey's Frog




Airic, Paddleman, Juan and Atu, Heimlich, and Jimbo




"Gus"


I carved this out of an old piece of something from the barn. I think it's fir. Made a copper bracket for the shade (which is just marker on watercolor paper) and colored the clock face the same.


"Orin"


"Willard and Ben" This was the gnarliest bit of palm ever carved. The hollowed out insides were at one time rat invested. One of my favorites.

Thanks for the comments. The wood used is either cedar or redwood that falls in my yard. It is a bit soft and holding detail is tough but it is easy on tools.

I appreciate the props Amate. I have followed you and the other great carvers that have commented and am pumped by the response. I will keep adding and will post my latest as soon as it gets warm enough to paint.

Whoa! An Andre Breton reference! (i had to look him up- You are too kind mon ami laojia) Thanks BBBen, I'm a long time fan. Glad Kirby liked the floating heads. I'm just a hacker whackin' my wood, and enjoy myself just like you all do.

Great collection of work going on there. You have a cool whimsical style. I also dig the way you name the tikis and almost give each one a back story. That is a great touch and fun. Keep it up man, looks great.

Hey Cy....

been checking these out for a week or so and keep going back.
Looks like you are grabbing your influences from every-which-a-where,
and I think that's cool. A little bit of this...a bit of that...
and some very interesting carvings are the result. Great colors too.
Welcome aboard.

Thank you Matt Reese- After spending so much time with them they really do develop a story. Conga I have admired your work since I started checking out this forum about a year ago. You also have a wide variety of influences.
