SANDY BEACH PLEIN AIR MORNING


Surf was junk this morning, so I decided to paint "my backyard" instead.



Bry loves to give his authoritative knife technique advice.







The assistants, hard at work.

HERE TODAY, GONE SUWARROW


This is an abstract painting with just a bit of the tropics sprinkled in.
Suwarrow is a tiny uninhabited atoll in the South Pacific, part of the Cook Island chain. One of my favorite books is "An Island To Oneself", where Tom Neale lived alone on Suwarrow for a number of years.
His adventures inspired me to paint this abstract.

Tiny glass beads, along with silver and gold paint
enhance the texture and make the painting sparkle.

PERFECT PLEIN AIR DAY ~ MAKAPU'U


The island was beautiful this morning, so I packed up my plein air gear and headed for Makapu'u.



When the weather is this perfect, all else gets put on hold.





In the zone.....



If I needed a reminder that I am lucky to live here doing what I love,
this morning absolutely sealed the deal.

ROUND NOSE FISH - Odysea Surfboard Painting


Dean's newest board is a soft top, a foamie, a beater board.
It is surprisingly fun to ride, but he wasn't thrilled with the plain white color. I usually only paint my own boards, but after some no shame begging on his part, he got me to add a little round nose fish to the nose of his Round Nose Fish. Can you even paint on a foamie? Who knows, but it was fun to try.

KAI O LUMINESCENCE


A large abstract that I really enjoyed creating.

"Kai O Luminescence"
30x30 Palette Knife Painting


I came up with the name "Kai O Luminescence" because it has some very small glass particles that sparkle and shimmer when the light hits them just right. It reminded me of bioluminescence in the ocean at night, and since "Kai" is the Hawaiian word for ocean or salt water, it is kind of a play on words.

Tiny glass beads that sparkle throughout certain areas of the painting.


A bit larger than I usually paint!


Some close up detail of this painting.









"Kai O Luminescence" coming to life!

MALUAKA MORNING


Maluaka Beach, on Maui’s south shore, is very scenic. In the winter months you can see humpback whales breaching everywhere. And in the early mornings, as the sun pops up over Pu’u Ola’i (Red Hill), the sand on the beach begins to glow. A perfect way to start your day in Paradise!
