Byodo-In Temple in Hawaii - plein air study

12 x 9 pastel

Today I visited the Byodo-In Temple on Oahu, Hawaii.  This is a replica of a temple at Uji, Japan.  There was a jazz festival there today as well, so I got to listen to music while painting.  I am calling this a field study, because it was done quickly and with frequent interruptions by people who wanted to talk to me, which did affect my concentration and rhythm.  But it was still a wonderful day, and I took lots of photos.

I REALLY have a tough time with buildings!  And this architecture was quite a puzzlement to me!!!  LOL!  I really goofed here!  Oh well, here is a link to the park's website so you can see the real deal!
