Thank you for your encouragement Zero ... I think I am starting to get this tiki stuff a bit. Now I need to get comfortable enough with them to go to another level. I like the way your art is so impressionistic. Early on, when I first started this thread, Sven told me that Tikis were a bit like cubism. They were not meant to represent reality. I am starting to believe that what the old islanders created looked the way they did because of the limitations of their tools. What would they look like with today's tools? I think maybe kinda like your art, with it's broad brush strokes and imaginative use of color. I think they must have understood your kind of impressionism but lacked your modern tools. Sven would probably tear into this theory. Thanks much and I do really like your work .... Gene

I'm starting to figure out how to get a more carved look. It helps when I use a strong wood grain surface treatment. More abstract background.

These bottle toppers from Tiki Isle/Hana Isle are some examples of Hawaiian style tikis which may be useful for your quest Aloha, Freddie

Thanks Freddie .....
I have really enjoyed the collecting link. I've been feeling out of the loop around here for awhile because I get confused about some of the threads discussing what is and what isn't tiki. I have been sticking to the artist threads, but collecting is something I understand. I was an antique dealer for a number of years and a collector for most of my life. I love hearing about the thrill of the hunt and the fun of making a great find .......

The Coco joes thread is also a great thread to get tiki images...

I have not posted any new stuff for awhile because I got distracted by an Ipad. I do have an attention span problem. I have been using the Ipad to draw cartoons. (well try at least) I really admire the cartoon artist here at Tiki Central. This is just something goofy I came up with.

Thanks very much Haole Jim, I really appreciate your comments. I like your "modern tiki" comment. I have not been sure where I might fit in the tiki world. But, I keep trying.
