  • 4/20/2015 - Use The Mokes To Guide You
    Ref. No.: 23829 ** Price: $600 ** Size: 16" x 20" ** Inspiration: "Use The Mokes To Guide You" was done on a hill top from a great vantage point. I could see all the yellow kayaks paddling away trying to reach the mokes and the wind was doing its best to prevent them. They were using a paddle and all I had was brush, so it was easier for me. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Canoes Of Kuliouou
    Ref. No.: 23830 ** Price: $600 ** Size: 12" x 24" ** Inspiration: "Canoes of Kuliouou" was done during the day, and it's equally good to paint a nocturne here, as the area is quite a ways from a lit area, so the stars and moon are shining. I read how navigator Nainoa Thompson would test out his celestial navigation by putting lights in the parking lot to align the stars, which drew the curious police. But Nainoa being a natural teacher gave them a good learning lesson on navigation. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Red Hibiscus
    Ref. No.: 23831 ** Price: $600 ** Size: 12" x 16" ** Inspiration: Painting "Red Hibiscus" reminded me of how a winning poem of mine in 4th grade won me a Hibiscus plant that my mom, Nancy, cared for and in a short time was transplanted out in the yard and bloomed flowers. Then I learned about caterpillars and butterflies! Awesome. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Na Pali O' Ko'olau
    Ref. No.: 23832 ** Price: $400 ** Size: 11" x 14" ** Inspiration: "Na Pali O' Ko'olau" (The Cliffs of the Ko'olau) was learned to me by doing the winning masthead design for Castle High School that was the title of the school newspaper. The pali is hard to miss but sometimes it's easy to as it gets shrouded in the mist. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Waimea Bay, Hawaii - April 2015
    Ref. No.: 23833 ** Price: $400 ** Size: 11" x 14" ** Inspiration: "Waimea Bay" is probably the smallest version that I have done of this site. Before I used to think that the size of the painting conveyed power, but it has nothing to do with the size. It is being able to lock into the inner strength of a painting, it's mana. In the case of making sure it has strong bones (structure), value and character, I am sure big wave riders can say the same thing about the power of Waimea Bay. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Three Tables At Pupukea 3
    Ref. No.: 23834 ** Price: $1000 ** Size: 15" x 30" ** Inspiration: "Three Tables" is an area I liken to the wild North Shore. It has a power to it, but it also has a quiet nature. It's a great place to chill when the other well-known areas are maxed out with people. A good place to paint. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Sandy Beach / Blowhole 1
    Ref. No.: 23835 ** Price: $800 ** Size: 16" x 20" ** Inspiration: On the day I painted "Sandy Beach/Blowhole", the spouting waves from the blowhole was going off and even from my distance, I could feel the ebb and flow of the tide from where I stood. It was humbling to feel its power. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Waimanalo, Hawaii - April 2015
    Ref. No.: 23836 ** Price: $1000 ** Size: 15" x 30" ** Inspiration: I painted "Waimanalo" when Martin Pahinui was being interviewed about 50 yards in front of me about 2 weeks ago. It was probably for his dad's (Gabby Pops Pahinui) celebration which is today, 4/25/2015. A celebration to honor Gabby at Waimanalo Beach Park with other entertainers. I sometimes sing a song that he liked to sing, "I'm living on easy, with a bottle of whiskey, I have no money to suit my honey." Ahhh the life of an artist! - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Regal Kualoa
    Ref. No.: 23837 ** Price: $1000 ** Size: 15" x 30" ** Inspiration: "Regal Kualoa" refers to when in ancient Hawaii, sailing canoes would pass before the mountains of Kualoa and would dip their sales to honor the gods of Kualoa. When I stare at the mountains, I can see why the power was bestowed on them. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Kaaawa Beach, Hawaii
    Ref. No.: 23838 ** Price: $1000 ** Size: 15" x 30" ** Inspiration: I painted "Kaaawa Beach" when the neighbor elementary school was having a excursion day there, so there was a lot of excitement in the air. The kids would call out, "Hi Mr. Artist!" - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Hidden Kualoa
    Ref. No.: 23839 ** Price: $1000 ** Size: 12" x 36" ** Inspiration: "Hidden Kualoa" was painted on a day when I had a lot of patience. When your painting the grays of the mountain when it's in shadow, then when the light opens the sky and shines on the mountain, it's as if nature was saying to me "Is that all the color you've got?" But its good to keep your cool and droll out a little color at a time, to honor nature and my patience. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Mokuli'i In The Shadow Of The Pali
    Ref. No.: 23840 ** Price: $1000 ** Size: 12" x 36" ** Inspiration: As I start painting the B side of the island, I painted "Mokuli'i In The Shadow of the Pali" and was inspired and owe tribute to a great painter, Dennis Morton. He did a similar layout. Dennis was a 10-year apprentice to nationally known portrait artist, Richard Whitney. Dennis first exposed me to the valley of Kauloa Ranch and he did some Hercules-like paintings that are still ingrained in my brain. Awesome painter. Last I heard, he paints in Kauai and goes back and forth to Conn. Thanks Dennis! - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Diamond Head Playground
    Ref. No.: 23841 ** Price: $3800 ** Size: 36" x 60" ** Inspiration: "Diamond Head Playground" was done on location ten years ago on another canvas, which I sold. I went to the same location 2 weeks ago and the trees have grown so I couldn't see Diamond Head. I had to walk out to the Kapahulu groin wall and by going all the way to the end, I could get the similar view. I did a 12" x 24" study and did the larger one in my studio. - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Olomana, Hawaii - April 2015
    Ref. No.: 23842 ** Price: $2800 ** Size: 36" x 36" ** Inspiration: "Olomana" was painted in 3 sittings. The first time, I was blown off the area by a series of strong winds. The group of women exercising (stroller strides) was seeing if I would stick it out, but we all left and I returned after getting my layout in. I used to pride myself on trying to finish in one sitting "Alla Prima", but I took the pressure off myself. Fellow Plein Air artist Mark Norseth would tell me, "Who says it has to be done in one sitting?" He was right. I also remember some of the laid back guys in high school would say "taaakkkeee ittt eeeaaasssyyyy!" - NEW RELEASE
  • 4/20/2015 - Olapa Sandy's
    Ref. No.: 23843 ** Price: $5500 ** Size: 36" x 80" ** Inspiration: "Olapa Sandy's" was painted in 4 sessions on the mid zone of Sandy Beach where surfing is permitted. Usually in the break, only bodysurfing is allowed but either way, they both get my respect. Olapa is used in Hawaiian Hula, as "in the style of" and the parade of warriors of men/boys, women/girls that take on the shore break is awesome! - NEW RELEASE
