Painting #5: 5 p.m. Canoe Club

Artist for A Pristine PlanetHere in Hawaii, the afternoon is sweet as sugar.

The clouds gather over the mountains and sweep towards the beach, and if it rains it doesn’t last long.

Near where I live, this is what it looks like when the canoe club gathers to practice every day. When I go down to the beach it’s just like getting a shot of pure Life – I always come home re-energized.

This painting was done in acrylics on 9″ x 12″ canvas. The original does not have the watermarked words on it!

Here’s how you can get the original of the painting: just send an email to Lyon at AngelaTreatLyon.com and let me know you want it.

If you miss getting the original, you can get a print of this image HERE starting at $104.00. You can get prints on paper, giclées – framed or unframed – and beautiful thick, glossy, richly color-imbued greeting cards.

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.

Painting #24: Body Surfing with My Buddies

Painting #24: TITLE: Body Surfing with My Buddies.

Last night a friend and I sat in his studio looking at hundreds of paintings, fantastic sci-fi computer art and highly stylized cartoons by other artists.

It was like I’d been hit with a huge high-amp jolt – I suddenly realized that I’d been being way too serious!

So I asked myself what I’d like to do today – oh yeah! Body surf!

OK then – here we go – and remember to look down to see who you’re surfing with!

Painting #23: Outrigger

Artists for A Pristine Planet

Painting #23: TITLE: Outrigger.

This is a take-off from an old Hawaiian poster I’ve had for years.

Back in the days before lead was banned from paint, they had this great color called Hookers Green. You can’t get it anymore, and it’s a crying shame.

I wanted to see if I could do a piece almost entirely in greens, and if I could get the feel that the older paintings had. I rather like it.

Because this image reminds me of a little tiny town called Ka’a’awa here on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu. The way you say it goes like this: KAH ah AH vah, with distinct breaks between the segments.

Painting #19: Out My Door

Artists for A Pristine Planet

SOLD. Painting #18: TITLE: Out My Door. This is what I see when I look out my door from my office. I keep the door open at all times so I can see my tiny little lanai – the sun is too intense there to sit for any length of time, so I filled it up with my little green friends.

Maybe you’ll recognize the birds-nest fern leaf on the left, the star-shaped sweet potato leaves and the lovely coral-red hibiscus.  I really love the contrast between the coral of the hibiscus and the gem-green of the leaves. And those little pinkish-lavender spots at impatiens and begonias peeking through here and there in the shadows.

Someone asked me the other day if I had painted all the images you see here. Yep, I did.

Get a mousey-pad of it here: Out-My-Door-MP, and get high quality prints in different sizes (starting at $104) here Out-My-Door-Prints. The image you see here is a darker than the actual painting.

Painting #17: Mellow Morning

Artists for A Pristine Planet

SOLD. Painting #17: TITLE: Mellow Morning. Some mornings here are so sweet – I love walking on the wet sand, seeing how impermanent my path upon the earth is – even compared to the real impact I and my doings might have. I think about how I could easily be an isolated artist, hiding in my studio – I did for years, you know! But I believe now that it’s more important to get out and speak up for what you’re passionate about.

Times have changed radically, and because of increased communications and technology, we have opportunites to create and amazing options we never had before. It’s time to creep out of that hidey hole and take your passion for a walk – a long, beautiful one!

Boy did I have a hard time getting the right blues in this online image – it just won’t translate all the way how rich those blues are. Ah well. Frustrating.

The original is SOLD! Thank you!

If you missed getting the original, you can get a print of this image starting at $104.00: http://bit.ly/Mellow-prints

Painting #15 & 16! Rosey Lips

Artists for A Pristine Planet

SOLD. Rosey Lips. Are they really that colorful? Yep, they really do look like that! (Go to google images and see: flapjack succulents, or Kalanchoe Luciae.) There are some I saw there that have deep, lipstick-red lips! Amazing, and so lovely to be able to go out and see in my garden every day. This original painting was done in acrylics on 9″ x 12″ canvas.

What if We Couldn’t Water Our Gardens?

Artists for A Pristine PlanetWhat if we didn’t have the water to souse our gardens with?

Here’s a shot of where I sit when I do my teleclasses.

What if I couldn’t water those plants? I’d be left with an ugly bare, bald patch of dirt.

Did you know that some bottled drinking water companies reprtedly use up so much water in the manufacturing of their products they the local ground water is disappearing, and the residents are going without? Bummer.

But you can help – quit buying bottled water! The National Resources Defense Council says that more than half of all Americans drink bottled water – about a third of the public consumes it regularly. Sales have tripled in the past 10 years to billions a year. . (Read more here)

Americans purchased nearly 31 billion bottles of water in 2006 and spend $11 billion on bottled water every year. That was 2006! Imagine what is is now!

Nearly 2.5 billion bottles of water a year are sold in New York alone—stacked up end to end, they’d reach the moon.

In New York, the oil used to make our bottles is equal to 66 million gallons of gasoline; enough to power 120,000 automobiles for a year.

Get more details – I urge you to get and download this easy-to-read revealing pdf here: dec.ny.gov/docs/materials_minerals_pdf/waterbottles.pdf

If your tap water is yugh, then get Prill Beads on Ebay. You can get one little bag (that will last you for years) for a whole 8 bucks. Or get a good filtering system.

I’ve been using Prill Beads for over ten years, and I figure I save more than 100 bucks a month – probably around 1300 annually. That’s a goodly amount! Imagine what my bill would be if I still had my 2 big thirsty sons living with me – ouch!

If you can’t afford to get a filtering system, Prill Beads is your answer. Here’s where I get mine: http://bit.ly/prill-beads (No, I’m not affiliated with them.) Although they say they’re good for a lifetime, I change mine once a year – just because.

(Prill hints: Use a GLASS bottle, not plastic, to refresh the ‘mother’ batch in every day. You can use reusable bottles for carrying around with you. I have three, and switch out so I can keep them clean.)

Painting #14: Huge

Artists for A Pristine PlanetPainting #13: TITLE: Huge. I get an arts newsletter that has an ad for ‘bold brush’ painters in it every day. When I saw that today, I thought, how can I paint this painting using a bold brush? So I used a big brush – about .75 inch across – to paint this – except, of course, the surfer, for which I used a smaller brush….

Help me support the cleanup of our oceans! Get this original painting for only $100 – email me at this address: Lyon(at)AngelaTreatLyon.com with APP Huge Wave in the subject line. I’ll let you know what to do so you can own this painting.

A percentage of each sale goes to organizations who help research what’s needed, and/or do the work….

What do you think – kind of an amazing wave to surf, yes? I know people who wait until the waves are even bigger than this to even think about going out. Egads!

Painting #12: Moonlight

Artists for A Pristine PlanetPainting #12: TITLE: Moonlight.

One night recently the moon was full as a pumpkin, and I went down to the bench overlooking the canal near my house to just sit and look.

There’s a family of ducks who live nearby, and as I came closer, they up and swam off. This is the effect of their sassy departure. I sure like how it came out (look closely at the left side, as the dark blues are very dark and hard to see unless you look at the enlarged image).
