My Big Island Paintings

I received a request several weeks ago from a customer at to show her what paintings of the Big Island I have available at this time. I stalled for so long that perhaps she has found another artist to collect, but nevertheless here is a group of my paintings from the gallery. For a price list one could email me directly at or

New at the Gallery

Yesterday Cosette brought in this amazing large orchid painting, Go Cosette!! We hung it high on a wall but will have to find a more prominent place for it soon.

I took some photos of the gallery windows, full of my hanging "ornaments," many of which are actually small paintings that happen to be two-sided and hanging on a line so they spin in the breeze. Call me crazy, but the holiday season gives me an excuse to be craftsy and creative in that more graphic and abstract way. You can also see a few of my new pareo prints.

I also photographed "my" wall, just as a record of how it looks at the moment. The large Kaua'i painting of Hanalei Bay needs to get shipped off to Germany soon. I'm hoping to trade out most of the other island paintings for Big Island, botanical or figurative themes soon.

My New Mexico paintings

Whew, Amy does go on, doesn't she (referring to the Hilo Plein Air schedules which Tuko is nice enough to post here, by far the longest entries on this blog)??

I had several exciting weeks of painting New Mexico landscapes with Roger Montoya, but unfortunately visited without my camera battery charger, and so of course I had only enough juice for this one photo of a chamisa, the famous yellow flower of a southwest fall season). The aspens were going off in the mountains and up north in Crested Butte, Colorado, where we drove up for half a week, but along the Rio Grande the cottonwood trees were only just starting to turn color. Nevertheless we both did about twenty paintings each....

Tuko joined us for a few paintings, one of which she is putting into the PAPOH show next month on Maui.
