We had a very pleasant opening celebration for our new show which features paintings that we have done in places other than Hawai'i Island. This is admittedly an odd premise for a show but it works for us since we normally just display work that has to do with our home island. Cosette is showing some of her many paintings of Tuscany and Umbria, while Gail conjured up some pastels of Venice and paintings of Fiji and Jamaica. Tuko has some scenes of Hana, Maui and the moon (where else?), Esther shows us the landscape of her imagination, and I have a hodgepodge of my New Mexico paintings, O'ahu, Maui and Kaua'i.
I was too busy shmoozing and drinking Mimosas from our champagne fountain (generously lent by Michael David, who also donated the champagne, OJ and grenadine) to take photos, so here are a few of the images I put in the show.
