A SPECIAL FRAME FOR A SPECIAL PAINTING


A few years ago, my Dad and I spent a nice father/daughter day building picture frames together.


We made beautiful woven liners that gave the frames a unique tropical feel.



Since these frames were so original, I did not want to use them on just any painting. When I created "All You Need", it quickly became one of my all time favorites to date, and I think it is worthy of one of these special frames.

I will always keep the wonderful memory of a great day spent with my Dad, but am ready to let someone else enjoy our creative handiwork!

CHINAMAN's HAT FROM SECRET ISLAND


Chinaman's Hat (also known as Mokoli'i Island), on Oahu's east shore, is an iconic landmark of Hawaii, and being able to see it while relaxing with your toes in the sand is even more special!

DREAMING OF A NICE COZY FIREPLACE


Dang, it's COLD!
Strong North Winds, Pouring Rain.....63 degrees outside, 66 degrees in the house - with no heat source. Very un-Hawaiian weather. First time ever painting in sweats (and yes, fuzzy socks too). I admit it... I am a cold weather wimp!

SOUTH WINDS WAIMANALO


Waimanalo Beach, to me, has some of the most beautifully colored waters on all of Oahu, so when it was a Kona South Winds day, I knew where I wanted to be.


Sure enough, I was pleasantly rewarded with the most awesome sight of pure glassy vibrant bright aquas, teals and turquoise.



Perfect office for the day.

KAWAIKUI PLEIN AIR DAY


Got to enjoy another nice (but sometimes challenging) painting day outdoors.

Although it looks like a picture perfect day in Paradise, there were some crazy wind gusts that would unpredictably come out of nowhere. My umbrella had a rough time of it and was flipped inside out twice before I finally put it out of it's misery.

Painting between the tall swaying coconut palms!



Finished up just as the sky turned dark.
The wind gusted even more, and then came the rain.
