Almost Across the Line: Painting #55

Artists for A Pristine PlanetSOLD. Almost Across the Line: Painting #55! Every evening I hear/see the outrigger canoes racing up and back down the canal behind my house.

From little kids to men in their 70s, it’s always exciting to hear the clank of paddle against hull, the “HUT” cry of the steering guy, and the shuffle of hands and paddles as they shift from paddling on one side to the other. Here, they’re almost home, almost across the finish line as the sun sinks….

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 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.

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.

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.

Want the original of this one? Here’s how you get your original of Outrigger: Email me at Lyon at with APP Outrigger in the subject line.

You can get a gorgeous, gem colored mousey-pad of it here:

And if you miss getting the original, get a giclée print (a giclée is a high-quality print on canvas – so good you almost can’t tell the difference between it and the original) here
