DELICIOUS “PERKS” OF BEING AN ARTIST


A few years ago, I was asked to create a special coffee label for “Ka Pono O Ka Aina” farms. They are growers of organic coffee and macadamia nuts on Hawaii’s Big Island. They sent me a sample of some of their freshly roasted coffee beans and mac nuts, which were some of the best I have ever tasted, and a basic description of what they wanted the label to portray. I was thrilled to be able to create a work of art that would be used for such delicious products.

The company loved my creation, and to this day, years later, I am still being surprised by special treats in my mailbox. Gifts that say how much they really did appreciate the work that went into creating their custom coffee label. It touches me to know that they feel this way about my art, but I think I am the one that got the much better end of the deal!

MAUI ON MY MIND



Here are two of my latest Maui scenes.
If I can’t be enjoying the gorgeous Valley Isle in real life, having my palette knife take me there is the next best thing!

AQUA SHORES OF WAIMANALO



Whenever I drive past Makapu’u towards Waimanalo, I always look forward to the gorgeous colors in the water here. Brilliant aqua, teal and light turquoise, a bit different than any other on Oahu. It’s a spectacular sight, and probably my favorite water color on the entire island.

“Aqua Shores Of Waimanalo”
is my latest palette knife painting.
It is a scene near Kaupo Beach looking towards Kailua.

TOGETHER TIME



HAPPY ALOHA FRIDAY!


Our friend, YP, brought a GoPro out in the water this morning. He got this shot of Dean and I spending some
"quality time together".
Best way to start a day, even if the surf is kinda junk.
