I started painting some smaller pieces recently. I was thinking that I needed to have a variety of sizes of paintings available, with an array of prices. It took a bit of work to get used to painting on such a small canvas. I didn't have brushes that were small enough! Once I got my system going, I sure had a lot of fun. Now I enjoy using smaller brushes and painting in the minature arena. It's a whole different world!
My sister Robin... the coolest surfer chick around. I did this painting from a photo of Robin. I think she was surfing at Flat Island in Kailua, Oahu. Yes she had her shades on, no her hair isn't green- I'm the one in the family with the hair color changes. I just love this photo, so I had to paint it!
So every morning I go for a walk, a long walk. I finish at Kamaole III Park by the jungle gym so I can do my stretches. I stand at the bars and look at this view..every day. It's never the same actually. The shadows change, the people change, the ocean changes. I love this view.
This great little spot along Ali'i Drive I pass all the time. Watching the waves roll in, feeling the breeze on my face..love it. This would make for a great panoramic painting. Keeping that in mind.
