Our House 12x12 Oil An idealized image of the waves crashing against the Puna coast at Hawaiian Beaches. Our front yard.
Luna 11X14 Oil - This image of a local, hala hat and all, caught my eye as an exercise in direct painting. No glazing, no underlay, just ala prima brushwork in a single sitting, wet in wet.
Andrew's Porch - 11x 22 watercolor. This rainbow arched across the ocean looking out over our lanai and our neighbor's deck one glorious afternoon.
Filtered 16X20 oil. This rainforest stream along the Hamakua Coast was something I caught on camera while visiting the Botanical Garden and brought home to pain in studio.
Churning - 11X 14 Oil en plein air. This is the cove in the rocks in front of our Pahoa home where the waves are almost never silent.
Rock Solid 12x12 Oil This palette knife and brushwork image of one of the large rocks in our front yard by the ocean is reminiscent of Wyeth's Maine scenes. Different rocks, different ocean, same sensibility.
Splash 2 - 6X6 Oil en plein air. One of the rocks in the water off our front lawn. I wanted to try some quick studies of the colors and the patterns that make the sea look alive all the time.
Coconut Palm 11X22 watercolor. Sunlight and shadows played along with the breezes on our palm trees as seen from the lanai.
Jungle Stream 16X20 Oil. Waterfalls in the Botanical Gardens north of Hilo reflect the calm of the rainforest floor.
Splash 1 6X6 Oil en plein air. A small study of the waves on one of the rocks off the shore by our house. I think I could spend hours studying these waves with paint in hand or without.
Pahoa Christmas - 11/14 acrylic. Our Christmas Card image for 2014, our first holiday in the ocean house.
Naptime 8 x 10 Oil of our hammock in the front yard under the characteristic three palms and ocean spray.
Oceanside Campfire 6 X12 oil. One of our favorite things to do on a Saturday night is to enjoy a fire and a bottle of wine by the water.
Red Road 9X 12 Oil en plein air. We walk Milo past this bend in the road every weekend. A glorious reminder of why we chose Hawaiian Beaches for our home.
Pals dyptic 6X6 and 6X6 oil. Mia and Milo are best buds in Hawaiian Beaches. One of the joys of having your own home is being able to enjoy pet ownership.
Milo 9X 12 oil. Our Catahoula mix is unique in many ways. The state dog of Louisianna, the leopard cur was bred to hunt wild pigs - fitting for the neighborhood where all the local boys tell us "Nice dog!" all the time.
