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 –

Storm Coming Over Lanikai: Painting #56

Artists for A Pristine PlanetStorm Coming Over Lanikai: Painting #56! Once in a while I indulge myself by going to one of the most lovely beaches here in Hawaii, Lanikai Beach. In Hawaiian, lani means heaven, or heavenly, and kai means ocean, salt water. The beach couldn’t be named more aptly.

Shed of its details: tourists, boats and evening strollers, here it is. I love the bold-brush style and how it accentuates the feeling in the air.

Red Sings the Blues, Painting #42

Artists for A Pristine Planet

Red Sings the Blues, Painting #43. Sometimes you just gotta whine and let it all out. That’s not to say you have to be meek and mild! Let ‘er rip! I’ve always loved watching/feeling musicians.

I believe a musician’s job on the planet is to make sound tangible in our hearts and color visible.

Looks great framed, doesn’t it? The original does NOT come framed – this is only so you can see how classy it will look once you do frame it!

My Friend, Painting #41

Artists for A Pristine PlanetMy Friend, Painting #41.

Ever have a friend who got himself into trouble you just can’t help him out of?

Sometimes it’s just too late. But wait…maybe not…if I can just put in a good word, maybe he isn’t chewed so thoroughly badly and Bear will let him go….

I like how the sunset lights him up with peachy tones…and how the ripples in the snow light up, too, just like ripples on sand.
