Summer in Honolulu

These are my three gouache studies from my summer vacation in Honolulu with my family. I wanted to do more paintings while on O'ahu, but my two boys a 4.5 year old and 15 months had different ideas like going to the beach and me being the lifeguard.

The first two are painted from the Moana Surfrider Hotel in Waikiki a little before sunset and a nocturne around midnight. The second painting is at the tide pools just north of Sandy's beach.

A Centuty of Landscapes: Selections from the California Art Club

A Centuty of Landscapes: Selections from the California Art Club, San Francisco chapter has it's openning reception with the artist on July 14th. A small plein air painting of mine the Music Concourse in Golden Gate Park was accepted to the show. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the reception as I am on a family vacation in Hawai'i. I did bring my gouache kit with me, so I hope to have some paintings of Oahu to post when I get back to the Bay Area.
