CHINA WALLS


China Walls is a popular surf spot on Oahu's southeast side, in the Portlock area of Hawaii Kai. Surfers jump off the cliff to catch some long lefts into Maunalua Bay. It is also the perfect place to view a tropical Hawaiian sunset.

A BRYZIIZ CHRISTMAS


There once was a lovebird named O'neill. Known as NeelieWheelie by all his closest friends, he was the most caring and thoughtful little lovebird. NeelieWheelie wanted to share with Brighton a gift of special sight. Santa made an early Christmas delivery, and now Brighton's new BRYZIIZ are (remotely) able to see things in a whole new birdie kind of way!

KULA COOL


Although Hawaii is not known for having four seasons, it is possible to occasionally find a bit of snow atop Haleakala Crater on Maui. The cooler air of Kula becomes a refreshing change for some. Happy Holidays!

ANOTHER MAKAPU'U PLEIN AIR MORNING


If I was forced to pick only one beach on Oahu to plein air paint,
it would have to be Makapu'u.

FOUR SEASONS MAUI


Finally, a nice, cool day in the Islands. Time to paint some Maui Snow!

The summit of Haleakala does occasionally get a dusting of snow, while down at the shore, it's still warm enough to enjoy your day at the beach.
What a spectacular sight!

STREAM OF GOLD


Another HOT & HUMID day here in Hawaii. Having to turn on the A/C the last half of November is kind of insane, but necessary.
Painted another snow scene hoping it might make it feel cooler.

MILLY & MOLLY


Hawaii has been having record breaking hot & humid weather lately, so when I finally woke to a very rainy, dark, and cooler morning, I took full advantage.
Put on my Mainland Moose Painting Apron and got right to work on a Utah snow scene!

This is a view of the majestic Mount Millicent (affectionately known as Milly), found at the Brighton resort in Utah. Molly Greens is the cute little ski chalet that sits beneath Milly. A great place to take a break and grab a bite to eat before heading back up the mountain for more fun!

LANIKAI PLEIN AIR MORNING


Got to Lanikai Beach just as the sun popped up behind the Mokes.


Perfect way to start the day!


I decided to paint looking towards Kailua. The red of the bromeliads poking out from the green Naupaka, with a bit of purple from the Pohuehue (Morning Glory) flowers were colorful and inspiring, so I included them.


Although the day was beautiful, there was not an ounce of breeze, and even though it was early, the air became hot and humid very quickly.
Where are those wonderful Tradewinds?!?


By the time I was pau, the ocean was calling.


REWARD TIME!

H-POKO PAPA & MAMA's


This is the scenic view you will find on the north shore of Maui, heading towards Paia, just past Ho'okipa, before you reach Mama's Fish House. This stretch of beach is known as "H-Poko Papa". The "H" being short for "Hamakua Poko". "Papa" is the Hawaiian word for the flat shelf of reef that sits between the sand and water. And since Mama's Fish House is just right around the corner from here, I thought
"Papa & Mama" went together nicely!
