SANDIA SUNSET


When I was quite young, I lived in New Mexico for a few years. One of the first things I learned to spell was
A-L-B-U-Q-U-E-R-Q-U-E.
Our home had a wonderful view of Sandia Peak.

WHEN THE SHAMA SINGS


Although this is not one of my usual landscape paintings, I wanted to give the white rumped shama a try with my knife. The shama is one of my favorite song birds and we have a few that like to visit our tropical garden. This painting was done about 5 weeks ago, with the start of the coronavirus lockdown in Hawaii. Not knowing what to expect over the next few weeks or months, I would hear the little white rumped shamas, singing their beautiful songs each morning. They didn't seem too worried about the days ahead, which gave me a great sense of hope (and inspiration to paint something different).

INHERITED CREATIVE GENES


My parents are so innovative. They recently created a hybrid Papaya seed that is able to quickly produce a very beneficial fruit during this challenging time of Coronavirus lockdown here in Hawaii. This little tree is only two weeks old and has already made it's first fruit ready for harvest. Over time, the fruits will become more-sheets-per-roll jumbo sized.

Introducing the new and improved "T.P.paya Tree".
The world is saved!


I love my parents and their creative sense of humor thru this challenging time of lockdown in Hawaii. We were just informed that the stay-at-home orders are now extended through the month of May, as well. Although being an artist, and working from home, I am not as affected by the lockdown as many are, I am finding it hard to be inspired to paint, and have recently been spending more time outdoors in my tropical garden. Adding more vegetable seeds, and of course tending to my new T.P.paya tree!

WORTH THEIR WEIGHT IN GOLD


Paper towels and rubbing alcohol, the only two basic things this palette knife painter needs (besides paint, canvas, & knife, of course) for painting. In this crazy time of Coronavirus, these two everyday items have become scarce, forcing me to become very creative in conserving what little supply I have left. I've quickly realized that these quarantine days have given me a new appreciation for everything that I have.
Paper Towels & Rubbing Alcohol - worth their weight in gold.
