With the fire threat behind us, we were able to go on our vacation with no worries.
This is the early morning view from our resort room. I am on my way to the windward side of the island to meet Helen Iaea and the Windward Wanderers (all media plein air painters) to paint on location at Kailua Beach Park.
Helen is the president of Pastel Artists of Hawaii, and responded to my e-mail by inviting me to paint with them. Helen is not only a wonderful pastelist, she is also a talented watercolorist. See her website here, and be sure to check out her pastel entitled "Tropical Tangle". Gorgeous flowers!
You can also check out the Pastel Artists of Hawaii website here. Unfortunately, I just missed their recent paint-out.
Welcome to my art blog! This is where I share my explorations and learning experiences in pastel, watercolor and oil painting. I have had this blog for about six or more years. I am currently entering many national and regional juried art shows. I have a website and sell my work from there as well. I started a group called Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters a year ago and it has grown to about 40 active painters! Each year brings new challenges and exciting opportunities. I have made many friends among other art bloggers and enjoy visiting their blogs. I hope you enjoy your visit here, and click on the links to my website and the plein air painters to see more!
