At the entrance to Hawaii Kai, you will find a bridge crossing Kuapa Pond. The small island to the right of this photo is known as "Duck Island" and is home to many of the marina's cute little waterfowl. The tide here goes out to Maunalua Bay. Although this colorful tiny island is known as "Duck Island", on this particular day, there were no ducks to be seen while I was painting. There were, however, quite a few Cattle Egret, searching the freshly cut grass for a tasty snack!

This is actually the same location as one of my first plein air sessions back in January of 2012. It is hard to believe that 7 years have passed since I last painted here. This scene still holds a special place in my early plein-airing memories. Below are some pictures from that day. It was the very first time I got to try my newly purchased SolTek easel. I was still brush painting at the time, still learning the ropes of plein airing, but enjoying every moment. Brighton had fun watching the ducks!
