Hui No'eau Trees

Began this painting some time ago, but the trees didn't move and so I finished it last week.  It's 8 x 10, oil, completed in two plein air visits to the Hui with a little studio tweaking.

We've had some sick pineapples (aka kids) here over the last two weeks and so painting has slowed to a crawl.  Momentum is gaining again however as all are well.

View from Maui Country Club

The Maui Plein Air painting group was invited back to the golf course a couple of weeks ago and this is the result.  Great morning with wonderful people - amazing artists - as usual!  Had a wonderful lunch there with my friend Pat who doesn't have a web site - yet.  Her piece is gorgeous and she had a frame with her to leave the piece there - very beautiful!

I also had the great pleasure of having coffee and conversation with Jeanne Young before our paint out.  She's a really wonderful painter with unstoppable energy and enthusiasm.  Best cup o joe I've had in a while...  check out her work -

Haleakala Road

It was just a gorgeous morning and I had to get out to paint.  I met some of the nicest people coming down Haleakala Mountain on bikes.  This is 6 x 8, oil on Raymar panel; done with a limited palette - my current all around favorite - phthalo blue, cad yellow light and permanent rose.
