JUST A LAZY K-BAY DAY

"Just A Lazy K-Bay Day"
20x24 Palette Knife Painting
SOLD

Once in a while, I like to take a day to just play “tourist” and drive around the island, stopping at the wonderful little fruit stands for some fresh coconut, or visiting the North Shore beaches, which seem so far away, but in all actuality it is not more than a 2 hour drive from one side of the island to the other.

As you head up the east side, you pass Kaneohe Bay. Being on the windward side, the water is usually a bit choppy and rather murky, not the crystal clear turquoise seas you are used to seeing on Oahu. But Kaneohe Bay still has a certain allure to it. A small anchored dinghy that bobs gently at high tide will actually be resting on the muddy sand at low tide, quite a peculiar sight!!

The breeze blows through the gorgeous palms and you just get the feeling of a happy lazy “no work” day. The beautiful Koolau mountain range, and Chinaman’s Hat in the distance, remind you that you still have more sights to see as you pull away from “K-Bay” and head further on your tropic island tour.

MAHALO for taking the time to view my artwork.

SAIL AWAY FOR THE DAY


SOLD

Even those that are lucky enough to live in a lovely little tiki shack on a perfect tropic South Seas Island, find the need to get away once in a while. They pack up a lunch, and head out to another beautiful island that may not be all that far away, but feels a world away once you are there. And after spending a fun filled day in this tropical heaven, they are always glad they have their own Island Paradise to return back home to.

"Sail Away For The Day" is a 12 x 24 original oil palette knife painting. It is a diptych done on two 12 x 12 canvases.

MAKAPU'U ON MY MIND

"Makapu'u On My Mind"
8x10 Palette Knife Painting
SOLD

Driving along the east side of Oahu, from Sandy Beach towards Kailua, you climb the hill, come around the bend, and are instantly rewarded with one of the most stunning views on this Island. The Makapu’u coastline with Rabbit Island standing out among the most beautiful turquoise water makes my heart jump every time! With white foaming surf rolling into the shore, and the swaying palm trees lining the beach park, this is a view I never tire of no matter how many times I drive this road. It is truly spectacular!

"Makapu’u On My Mind" is an 8 x 10 original oil palette knife painting.
