"Miniature Pink Rose Bouquet #1"

5"x7" Acrylic on panel

                                                                                                                                                           What fun this was to paint!  I had a reference photo I had taken, but used my imagination for the most part on everything but the roses.   If interested in this painting, I ship free in the USA when the painting is unframed.    I am including a photo of this painting in a frame so you can see what a difference a frame makes.

Framed as shown $250

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     There is extra time and more cost involved  for shipping and handling if the painting is framed like this.  Contact me at 808.536.0650 or by email  for a shipping price quote on either UPS or FedEx.

  Please excuse the imperfect alignment of the text in this posting; for some reason it is not working properly tonight.   Can't be me, right?

"Cleaving to Clivia"


                                                                    8"x16" Oil on panel
                                                                         Private Collection

This painting was an experiment in color and is a bit more decorative in flavor than most of my work.   These clivia flowers were found at  Waimea Bay botanical gardens on Oahu, and I added the lizard just for fun.  Don't know why, but I get a kick out of lizards and photograph them frequently.   Hope you enjoy your visit to my blog today!

"The Bold and Beautiful"

8"x10" Oil on panel

I loved the bold stripes of this material, but at first was not sure how they might work with the delicate gardenia blossoms.   I was rather pleased with the finished result and will use this materail again.         

Lately I have been doing more photography than actual painting, but that has got to stop!   I am currently working on 3 miniature paintings, but am anxious to begin a larger major piece.   Please return to this blog  often as I will definitely be painting more in the future than I have been lately.  Thank you for stopping by!

For more information or to purchase this painting, please contact me at      or feel free to phone me at  808.536.0650.         I will be glad to help you in any way I can.
