RIBS STILL SORE......PAINT SOME MORE!


Starting my fourth week with sore ribs. Not fun. Can't even imagine trying to paddle a surfboard yet. OUCH!
At least I can still paint, and painting I have been.
Here are some of my latest 8x8's.

MINI HAWAII's HEAL DA RIBZ


A few weeks ago, I injured my ribs while surfing. Water can be harder than you realize. It is taking a long time to heal, and unfortunately, I will be out of the water for at least a month. But on the bright side, painting is something that hasn't been affected, so this fish out of water has had time to create a new batch of "Mini Hawaii's".
Enjoy!

TEAHUPO'O TAHITI



This past week, I have been watching the "Billabong Pro Tahiti" with guys surfing the gnarliest barrels at Teahupo'o. Thought it might be fun to try painting a little Tahiti for a change!

POHAKU PARADISE



Pohaku Park is such a picturesque spot. With it's tropical palm trees, shimmering turquoise waters, and the island of Lana'i in the background, it is one of my favorite Maui scenes to paint!

TIME TO GO BIGGAH!


Having been painting many small 6x6's over the past few months, I decided to see if I still remember how to paint larger. Here is an 18x36 scene of Makapu'u that I have been working on recently.

MORE (not quite as mini) MAUI



Yes, I am back on Maui once again ~ well, in my mind anyways.
Here are a few "larger-than-the-mini's" that I have been working on since we returned from the Valley Isle.
Each one is 8x8 and comes framed in solid wood.

ISELLE & JULIO ~


Well, they are on their way. Iselle & Julio ~ back to back hurricanes ~ just about to cross paths with the Hawaiian Islands. You would never think by looking outside that we are due for some nasty weather, it is gorgeous and sunny right now. I did spend the entire morning giving my 30+ Manilla and Fan Palms some major "haircuts", just to be safe.


So many cute little birds out flying around my yard. I wish I could warn them to take cover for some wet and windy weather ahead. Maybe they know......


I just came across my "Mark Brown Hurricane Preparedness List".
A must for all Hawaii Plein Air Painters. Stay safe Hawaii! ALOHA~
