CASUALTY OF THE KNIFE


This afternoon, I suffered the loss of a good friend, one of my favorite knives. He was a good knife, a hard worker, rarely complained, although he did "bite" my fingers a couple of times. He gave me many years of joy and accomplishment.
He will be missed.
Aloha~

NIHOA


This is my new largest painting to date.
I purposely picked this canvas in preparation for a concerning week ahead. It's considerable size would take much of my time and keep my mind occupied on something other than worrying.

Some close up detail of this painting.





Small glass particles in the surf spray and sections of the water give it a bit of sparkle in certain light.

LANIKAI PLEIN AIR DAY


Spent a very nice day at Lanikai.
The last time I plein aired here was seven years ago - hard to believe!


It seemed to have changed a bit from the previous time I was here. In fact, I couldn't even locate the spot where I had set up my easel back in 2012. Luckily, I found another area further out on the rocks that offered a great view of the Mokes.


Even though it was not exactly as I had remembered, it was still just as beautiful.

SINGLETRACK MIND


My mind is still on the mainland.

A fun way to view the colorful wildflower-filled landscape is by winding through the singletrack trails on your mountain bike. Although it's quicker than hiking, be sure to stop once in a while and take in as much of that beautiful scenery as possible. It doesn't last long!

BEACHY MORNING "ME TIME"


Spent the morning at one of my favorite beaches. Although this may look like work, painting is my way to unwind and just chill for a while.


"Me Time" (noun) - "time spent relaxing on one's own as opposed to working or doing things for others, seen as an opportunity to reduce stress or restore energy."




The Assistant has no problem finding his "Me Time".

Life is short, make sure to schedule plenty of "me time" for yourself.
It does a world of good for your sanity!

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!
