Welcome 2016!

A new gallery opened in Holualoa, Glyph Art Gallery, owned by Ron and Lisa Haake!  Ron has been my web designer and giclee maker for years.  It’s beautiful.  Right across from Holualoa Inn.  Come and visit!

The official Grand Opening at Glyph Art Gallery is taking place during the Holualoa First Friday Art Stroll from 6 to 9 pm on Friday, February 5th.

Many of my works are represented including this gem, Circle of Life, a larger scale koi painting,  The title comes from the Lion King, a song about love and faith.  The deep blue values resulted in pouring pigment over light colors and gave it an elegant quality.  There is almost a human tenderness with the koi on the left!

For the fun of it, I entered the Circle of Life, Memories of Onomea Bay, and Regal Hawaiian to the Splash 18 watercolor competition this year.

Regal Hawaiian was begun in a Jean Pederson workshop.  The portrait artist Kathy Long gave the final critique. It is a hula dancer posing solemnly before the performance.
