SANDY BEACH PLEIN AIR MORNING


Surf was junk this morning, so I decided to paint "my backyard" instead.



Bry loves to give his authoritative knife technique advice.







The assistants, hard at work.

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.
