Olé!


This painting got it's name because the wave reminded me of a matador's cape flailing in a bullfight.

TOMATILLO TIME!


I haven't been painting as much as usual because our garden is starting to take on a life of it's own. Now that the weather has finally cooled down a bit, the veggie plants are needing more attention and time.

Mucho mahalo to our friend Richelle for introducing us to the world of tomatillos!
It only took two words - "salsa verde" - to get us to try them. We ordered the seeds, grew the plants, and now are up to our eyeballs in fresh homegrown tomatillos, (and a freezer full of homemade salsas and sauces).
They are verde, verde delicioso!

'TIS THE SEASON


Just like last year at this time, our tomato plants are decked out in their festive reds & greens. Pumping out the most delicious fruits almost faster than we can eat them!
So thankful that our garden is still going strong and keeping us supplied with the freshest produce we never knew we had been missing!

PAIKO BEACH

Paiko Beach is a small stretch of sand located on Oahu’s southeast shore. It is narrow, and can sometimes almost vanish during high tide, but it is a secluded, peaceful place, with great views of Koko Head, Maunalua Bay and Portlock.

KAMAOLE KIAWE ~ A Palette Knife Painting Video


This large kiawe tree can be found at the end of Kamaole I beach park right before the trail leads up to the Royal Mauian.
Many people walk right past without taking much notice, but this tree really is beautiful with it's craggy branches reaching out towards the sea, and it's rough jagged textured trunk catching the light in many ways.
