This is a painting of Papailoa Beach, on Oahu's North Shore, that I recently finished. The family for whom this painting was done actually lived on
Papailoa Road during their childhood.
Can't imagine a much nicer backyard than this!

Papailoa Beach
11x14 Palette Knife Painting

Last year, friends of mine took me to plein air at Papailoa Beach.

It was the first time I had been there and the day was absolutely perfect!

The scenery was amazing, and what really made it special were the many large honu (turtles) that hung around in the shallow waters the entire time we painted. They lazily munched on their "Limu Salad From The Sea". Limu is the algae that grow on the rocks here. It provides the honu with a tasty snack, and the artist with some fabulous colors to paint!
