Misty Pali Lookout: Painting #69!

Artists for A Pristine PlanetSOLD. Misty Pali Lookout: Painting #69! If you don’t have any occasion to drive from Honolulu to Kailua over the Pali Highway, this painting won’t mean much except a bunch of light colors. But for those of us who see the view on a regular basis know that it’s ever-changing, from misty to stormy to brilliant light to foreboding and dark.

Artists for A Pristine PlanetThis day when I caught it it was misty at the lookout, and emerging through the mist was a calm, reflective ocean. When I was out of the country I’d have loved to have had this image to remind me of home every day!

Sunup Over Kailua: Painting #68!

Sunup Over Kailua: Painting #68! When I sailed from Kauai to California a long time ago, one of the things that blew me away the most was how dawn looked over a glassy-surfaced ocean.

The horizon practically disappeared, the water reflected the sky making the world into soft cotton candy with streaks of light blue and lavender – a delicious dream!

Sunup over Kailua looks like that, too, sometimes – and you can see the end of the point going out past Kaneohe there on the left. This is a very heavily textured painting.

Haleakala Dawn: Painting #67

Artists for A Pristine PlanetSOLD. Haleakala Dawn: Painting #67! A way long time ago, I spent a month at a fellow artist’s beautiful place on Maui near Wailuku. Every day I’d hike to the top of the hill looking towards Haleakala, the dormant volcano.

On this morning, there was a heavy mist over the mountain and you couldn’t see the peak, but the colors were opal-spectacular.

This painting doesn’t even begin to capture it, but will have to do….and the actual painting is less harsh than this looks – I just couldn’t get it where I wanted it. Those light colors are a bear to catch –

Painting #6: Puerto Vallarta Umbrella

Artists for a Pristine Planet

Puerto Vallarta Umbrell: Painting #6

This is kind of an odd bird – I almost threw out the photo I used for reference for this piece as I went through my photogrpahs after I got home from Mexico because it was so fuzzy.

But after looking at it more, I decided it was kind of neat and thought I’d paint it, instead.

I love how the pinkish ‘auras’ around the people get kind of shmooshed into the layers of the sunset – that was how they really looked.

It had been a very hot, dusty day, and there was no breeze. Everyone and his left brother was on the beach, trying to cool down, waiting for the evening breeze, enjoying each others’ company as the sun slipped into the rosy sea.

You’re Always With Me: Painting #66!

Artists for A Pristine PlanetYou’re Always With Me: Painting #66!

I’ve sailed all over the upper eastern coast and across from Hawaii to California, and looking back, I can’t think of one time when I didn’t feel the Presence of That Something.

That huge Something people call god and all the other names…I could feel it – it just was always there.

Still is.

On the trip across the Pacific, when I’d be sitting on the bow of the boat at 5pm, with dusk beginning to sneak its way in, the dolphins would come out of nowhere to dance and leap and sing all around us for about 10 minutes – and then poof! They’d be gone.

How did they Know when 5pm was? How did they Know where we were? That was over 25 years ago, but so clear in my memory….

This is a diptych, meaning two canvasses make up one painting. They will be sold together! This is a heavily textured painting.

Waiting in the Wings: Painting #65!

Artists for A Pristine PlanetSOLD. Waiting in the Wings: Painting #65! When I was in high school I was part of the drama club. No, I wasn’t an actor – I swept the stage and did stage settings and backdrops! During rehearsals, I’d hear the actors being told, ‘wait in the wings,’ and this is the image that always came to me. So next time you feel like you’re waiting in the wings, picture yourself here!

Mokuluas Sundown: Paintings #63 & 64!

Artists for A Pristine PlanetMokuluas Sundown: Painting #63 & 64

[This was a bitch to scan and is near but not quite true to the original colors. As it is a diptych, it is 12″h x 18″ w.]

Sometimes I walk on the beach at sunset, and go past where all the outriggers are kept – it’s a magnificent sight, all those modernized but old-timey canoes lined up. Must be a good three dozen of them.

Then as you go past them onto the beach and look south, on the right is the tip of the beginning of Lanikai Beach, with the Mukulua islands guarding it out about a 45-minute kayak paddle away.

You can see the island of Maui from there when it’s clear – a full 200 miles away!

This is a diptych, meaning two canvasses make up one painting. They will be sold together! This is a heavily textured painting.

Tall Poppy Syndrome: Painting #60!

Artists for A Pristine PlanetTall Poppy Syndrome: Painting #60!

Now this may be one of my biggest Pet Peeves: being cut down for individuality or excellence in order to maintain the societal or cultural status quo.

Here in the US, we are constantly admonished to excel, be yourself, live your dream – yet many times when we do, we are cut down, scolded, shamed, embarrassed for sticking out, and in general whittled down “to size.”

I first heard the expression, tall poppy syndrome when I was in New Zealand.

I heard someone talking about how an Olympic athlete had won a silver medal – good for her country and all – and then she criticized the winner for how she comported herself during the ceremony. Rah, rah, our country (whatever country it might be), we got the silver – but then cut down the winner? Wow. Pretty nasty!

But don’t we see instances of that everywhere?

Girls trying to look dumb in junior high so the boys will like them because they’re not smarter than the boys are – people laughing when they see gurus of any kind blowing it – why do we feel we have to do that?

How about where you live?

Silly Tall Tales – er – Tails: Painting #59!

Artists for A Pristine PlanetSilly Tall Tales – er – Tails: Painting #59!

Well, now we KNOW I’m this year’s recipient of the Corny Prize!

I kept thinking of Silly Tall Tales – er – Tails and tall tails, and this image just popped into my head. It’s all at once very silly, totally non-serious, fun, funky.

Makes me think of how delightfully silly some of the covers for the New Yorker magazine are. Couldn’t you see this on their cover? LOL –
