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.

Some closeups





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.
