DIAMOND HEAD SAIL


SOLD

What could be better than sailing the gorgeous turquoise waters of Waikiki, with the world famous landmark of Hawaii, Diamond Head, as your backdrop. You won’t ever want to go back home!

MAHALO for taking the time to view my artwork!

ALOHA FROM HAWAII !

WILDFLOWER EXPLOSION !!

After our botched Teton Backcountry Trip, we decided to head back down to Utah, to spend the remaining days of our vacation hiking the Wasatch Mountains. Utah never disappoints us, and this time was no exception. The wildflowers were exploding with prolific color everywhere we looked. Entire mountainsides were covered.

The flowered trail to the lakes of Brighton.




Even the rockiest terrain puts on a show for us.

A brilliant orange Indian Paintbrush stands out among the rugged mountain terrain.




I enjoy hiking through an entire hillside of red Indian paintbrush, while the hummingbirds buzz all around!!


I would expect to see this on a movie set, or at a garden nursery, but not out in the wild.... total nature.... having to hike most of the day, but to find these fields and fields of beautiful colorful flowers just sitting there, waiting to be enjoyed by anyone who bothered to come along.... it was a special treat, indeed !!!

ALOHA FROM HAWAII !!!

THREE LITTLE BIRDS



"Three Little Birds" is one of my latest original oil paintings. No, it is not one of the usual bird paintings that I have been doing recently!!

The inspiration for this painting was my beautiful Bird Of Paradise plant that I have had growing in my garden for over 13 years. To me, the Bird Of Paradise is one of the most beautiful of all the tropicals. I am lucky enough to be able to grow them in my yard here in Hawaii, and their bright vibrant colors always bring a smile to my face. They are truly fascinating.

I really enjoyed painting these tropical birds.

This painting is 1 ft. wide by 3 ft. tall.
