Welcome! This blog began as an assignment in a digital art class. That was in 2008. I decided to keep it going as my art journal. It is fascinating for me to see how a painting develops, so this is where I post my painting progressions and exciting new things I find on creative blogs and websites. I hope you will learn along with me about painting, drawing and all kinds of art.


View along the Kona Heritage Corridor

Ok, we are past the halfway point of our stay here on the Big Island.
I LOVE it!

This is Pitaya amarilla, or Yellow Dragon Fruit. 
It is delicious!

The other day, we drove up on the 10 mile narrow, winding, hillside (mauka) Heritage Road 
above Kailua.

Lush, green, cooler habitat than down on the beach.

Saw lots and lots of coffee plants.
We stopped at a place we could pull off and be safe.

The attraction for me to paint there was a little window of light 
shining on banana leaves 
and the ocean in the distance.

kind of a mess, but this was my block-in that stayed this way for several days

Finally had the chance to work on it today. Pretty abstract, but I like it.

This painting is oil on a 6 x 6 inch prepared archival panel ... the only 6x6 panel that I brought.

Mahalo for looking in!
