ANOTHER MAINLAND KNIFE ADVENTURE


It seems this time of year is when I really miss our past mainland adventures. Don't get me wrong, living in Hawaii is pretty perfect, but once in awhile I crave the sights of the beautiful continental United States for a change. Luckily, I can relive the experiences with my knife, and that's exactly what I spent the past few weeks doing.

LITTLE GINGER~RED HOUSE


I love painting the cute little Hawaiian plantation style hales (houses) found in lush tropical settings, including palm trees, mountain waterfalls, and the all important moa (chickens). The bright red trim on this one compliments the red ginger that landscapes the property -- giving the cottage it's name!

WAILEA MORNING TEE


Here is a view you will find on one of the many gorgeous tropical golf courses of Wailea, Maui. The islands of Kaho'olawe and Molokini can be seen in the distance. The colorful foliage, including Palm Trees, Plumeria, and bougainvillea, make it quite scenic!

HIDDEN RETREAT ~ Makapu'u


Along the coast, between Makapu'u Beach and Baby Makapu'u, you will find some peaceful spots of sand tucked in between the lava rock tidepools.

ASHES TO ASHES - Nitro Surfboard Painting


Back in my school days, I was undoubtedly one of David Bowie's biggest fans.
I ate, slept, lived..... Ziggy Stardust.
So, with some help from Calvin's alter ego, Spaceman Spiff, I designed my new Ashes To Ashes board with a "Major Tom" theme.

Our "Whale Of A Morning" pair left such a memorable impression,
they were included.
