MAINLAND PAINTING APRON


I wear an apron when I paint, but they all happen to be tropical Hawaiian Style. I pick which apron to wear according to what matches the type of painting I am doing, and when painting mainland scenes, it felt weird having to wear a Hawaiian print apron. So today, I found some fabric that felt very "mainland-y".


I busted out my sewing machine and got to work.


The end result was an apron that I will be happy to wear when painting my
"Un-Hawaiian" scenes!


Can't wait to try it out.

GOOD WAVES DON'T COME EASY (IN OR OUT OF THE WATER)


You would think since I spend most of my mornings out in the waves, they would come easily to my knife! Unfortunately, this is not the case yet. So far, they have been my greatest painting torment to date, which makes me even more determined to figure them out.

BONG TREE BOARD VS. LISABONGZEE


In this episode, surprisingly, the elbow of Lisabongzee takes out Bong Tree.


Bong Tree on the exam table, prepped and awaiting surgery.


Dr. Deaniebong performs specialized replacement surgery using intricate methods.


Surgery, although not pretty, is a complete success!


Now we call in World Renowned Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. BryGuy MD, to perform delicate cosmetic procedure.


It takes a special individual to be able to perfect the reconstructive process well. That is why Dr. BryGuy MD was called in, as he is the best in his field. This photo shows the half way point of his very time consuming procedure.


With most amazing attention to detail, Dr. BryGuy MD and Dr. Deaniebong bring the Bong Tree Board back to it's former glory once again.


All is good in the land where the Bong Tree grows.
Time to hit the surf!


ALOHA FROM HAWAII!
