"Just Peachy" - Hibiscus
12"x 16" Acrylic/Gallery wrap canvas
"Pink Torch Ginger #2"
12"x 16" Acrylic/Gallery wrap canvas

Both of the original paintings shown above are available for $1200 each.  I recently posted some interesting information about Torch gingers along with some photographs on my main website blog which you can view here .  There are many varieties of ginger found in Hawaii and I will continue to write about them and publish my photos on my main website

Both of these paintings are shown at Fine Art America where you may purchase prints of them in the size and format of your choice.  Also at that site I have many of my fine art photos of varieties of Hibiscus flowers which may also be purchased as prints,  Please visit my site at Fine Art America by going here .

Mahalo for stopping by to visit and please return again soon.

Zebras, Rhino, and Water Hyacinth

Reference photograph

Water Hyacinth reference photograph

What do these two photos have in common?  Nothing at first glance!   But they were both taken at the Honolulu zoo and both images were recently posted here for interested collectors to purchase as prints and notecards at Fine Art America.  At this site you can chose the size and format you desire, whether a "flat" print (framed or unframed) or on gallery wrap canvas.   Please visit my site there at the above link provided for a selection of my paintings as well as my photographs to choose from to add to your art collection. 

Not only do I miss painting, I also miss photographing various things of interest here in Hawaii. I am so looking forward to being able to create and paint once again, hopefully in August.   Please continue to visit here with me in the meantime as I will continue to post photos and any art related news and events of interest.

Chickadees and Titmouse Art Prints

Chickadees With Crepe Myrtle

Titmouse Amongst The Roses

I have a limited inventory of these photographic art prints available for sale for $10 each.  The image of each print is approximately  5"x7" and may be matted and framed under glass to fit an 8"x10" frame or larger.  They will be shipped free but unmatted and unframed within the USA.  Outside the USA I believe $8.00 will be sufficient to cover shipping and handling.

The original 8"x10" oil paintings have been sold.  I painted these delightful birds when I lived on the USA mainland and observed them at my several bird feeders outside my studio window.  I miss these sweet little fellows as they do not live in the Hawaiian islands.

Shark's Cove
8"x10" acrylic on canvas

Bea Endert of California was the winner of this painting in the June 1 drawing !   She has received the painting and is very happy! That makes me happy too!   I first posted information about this painting and the drawing on the May 12 post on this blog if you would like to scroll down for more information. 
I really miss painting at my easel, but I have been doing other art related things and reading some important books I have had but never got around to reading because I was always painting constantly!

Will post some miniature prints of my paintings that are for sale in the next day or two so please check back with me.   Mahalo!

Harbor In Paradise

6"x6" Acrylic on Raymar panel

This harbor is near Ala Moana beach park in Honolulu.  I painted it pretty true to the reference photo I had taken a couple of months ago.   It was also painted right before I broke my right elbow on June 3 .  Since my right arm is of course still in a cast, I cannot hold a camera properly to photograph my paintings so I scanned the original painting on my printer to be able to post it here.  I personally believe the camera is more true than the scan on the printer, but wanted to share this painting with you and let you know I am looking forward to when I will be able to paint again in a few weeks.  Typing with my left hand index finger is slow going as well, so will be grateful when I can type normally again. 

Thank you for stopping by and please visit again soon.    It will be August before I can begin painting again, but I will be posting any news and photos before then.

Please feel free to comment and to inquire about purchasing this or another painting.

Hello and greetings from paradise!   I will not be able to paint for a few weeks due to the fact that  I broke my right elbow.. and I am right handed.    I will post what I can in the meantime, but will not be
 able to paint again until August.

Appreciate all your support and have a nice summer!
