Queens Beach Waikiki - 3
Ref. No.: 18409 ** Price: $2800 ** Size: 30" x 40" ** Inspiration: Queen's Beach in Waikiki makes for a great focal point with the big Banyan tree which is a hub of activity. I look towards the beach beyond where the Royal Hawaiian Hotel stands and imagine just the Moana Hotel as its only companion years ago. More...
Ala Wai Run - 1
Ref. No.: 18284 ** ** Size: 30" x 40" ** Inspiration: I paddled with the Canoe team "Kalihi Kai" that's based at the Ala Wai canal. I wanted to do a series of paintings on paddling but as I photographed paddlers as an outsider, I got stiff poses since they were aware of the camera. I knew that I needed to join the team so I would be one of them before any naturalness came about. The writer George Plimpton, in his book The Paper Lion, did this to get inspiration to be able to write about the professions such as football and the circus. More...
Waikiki Surf Lesson
Ref. No.: 18286 ** ** Size: 30" x 40" ** Inspiration: There are some painting days where every brush stroke is magic, and the painting Waikiki Surf Lesson was that magical. I painted it directly on Waikiki beach as a surf lesson happened right before me. I was painting in real time, no photos or retouching in the studio. The magic is based on drawing for hours prior to going out on location daily. Overnight success with 20 years of experience. More...
Photo With The Duke
Ref. No.: 18300 ** Price: $2800 ** Size: 36" x 48" ** Inspiration: As I painted in front of the Duke statue, scores of tourist would climb on and near the Duke for photos,
and in the painting I captured Duke as he stands,and
his admirers as they posed. More...
Queens Beach Waikiki - 1
Ref. No.: 18302 ** ** Size: 24" x 30" ** Inspiration: I love painting at Queens Beach ,named after Queens Surf which used to have a nightclub years ago,
the name could also be attributed to when Princess Kaiiulani had a house here on the beach,I love the challenge of capturing the Royal Hawaiian Hotel that sits beyond on the other end of the beach in all it's majesty More...
Ala Wai - 1
Ref. No.: 18303 ** Price: $1000 ** Size: 18" x 36" ** Inspiration: Sitting at the base of the Ala Wai is a the clubhouse which for me as a painter allows my eye to put a resting place in the painting. The boats dock along the piers and I love the reflections that are cast on the water. It gives this marine painting a bigger presence. More...
Magic Island Marina
Ref. No.: 18305 ** Price: $1400 ** Size: 24" x 36" ** Inspiration: This Magic Island Marina had me flirting with stronger,bolder colors, and it made it pretty intense if you got up close, but when you stepped back, it seemed to work,
This was my way to honor artist Lau Chun who always pushed the envelope in colors, More...
Duke At Waikiki
Ref. No.: 18325 ** ** Size: 48" x 60" ** Inspiration: To do this painting of Duke took a lot of setup time. Starting early at 7:00 am, I dropped off my canvas and easel at the Beach as the beach boys watched it and parked about a quarter mile down the road at Kapiolani Park and I set up directly in front of the Duke Kahanamoku statue. There is a city web camera that's on a pole near the statue and I watch as everyone waves at the camera, saying hello to family, friends and relatives with shaka signs and banners. The painting flowed easily and was purchased off my easel by a doctor who lives in the condo on Kalakaua who watched the artwork's progress as he did his walks. I always tell people that I honor the state by not selling at public parks and beaches. He laid out cash on my picnic table palette which caught my attention, but I delivered the painting to him later. More...
Waikiki Surf Stand
Ref. No.: 18334 ** ** Size: 36" x 60" ** Inspiration: As I set up my canvas to capture the water and Diamond Head in the background, the beach boys started to set up their rental stand and the painting took on another life. Of course the guys wanted to check out my work while I was painting and they wanted bigger arms in my rendering. More...
Waikiki Beach Series #1
Ref. No.: 18336 ** ** Size: 24" x 30" ** Inspiration: Copyright of Pacific Beach Hotel
The Pacific Beach Hotel sent me on the beach to do six paintings that would be reproduced for all their hotel rooms. My eyes were given free reign to capture anything and everything in my surroundings. I always like to put a sense of place in my paintings and the palm trees and activity expressed that easily. More...
Waikiki Beach Series #2
Ref. No.: 18337 ** ** Size: 24" x 30" ** Inspiration: Copyright of the Pacific Beach Hotel.
This rental surf stand was really busy as I painted it right on the beach. The shadows from the shady trees cast a footpath towards the shoreline. The painting shows the stand at rest as the surfers were already sent out to give lessons. More...
Waikiki Beach Series #3
Ref. No.: 18338 ** ** Size: 24" x 30" ** Inspiration: Copyright of the Pacific Beach Hotel
This painting was one of the my favorites of the Pacific Beach Hotel series. As I was tucked in between all the activity on the beach, Diamond Head in the background provided a nice curtain to show off all that happens at its foothill.
Waikiki Beach Series #4
Ref. No.: 18339 ** ** Size: 24" x 30" ** Inspiration: Copyright of the Pacific Beach Hotel
When you paint on Waikiki beach, the easel and canvas is like a loudspeaker calling everyone to come talk to you and I don't mind it. I coach painters to paint en plein air (outdoors) that if you converse and listen to onlookers, you front your easel and give your attention to your canvas. If you turn your body and assign your presence to your talker, in that moment you have given more importance to that dialogue then to the one your having with your painting. I shouldn't take all the credit for this painting because of all the free advice I got from anyone and everyone. Thank you all! More...
Kihei Canoe Club/ Waikiki Beach Series #5
Ref. No.: 18340 ** ** Size: 24" x 30" ** Inspiration: Copyright of Pacific Beach Hotel
As the Pacific Beach Hotel series consisted of all paintings painted on Waikiki Beach, this is painting I did on Keehi Maui. l have kept that a secret until now, you heard it hear first! But it has all the pop of a Waikiki beach painting. I love the colors in the canoes. More...
Waikiki Surf Rental
Ref. No.: 18345 ** ** Size: 30" x 30" ** Inspiration: As I painted this painting right on the beach, I couldn't help but put the umbrella right in the center of the canvas. I weighted the canvas on the left with the sail from the Catamaran to balance it. As I painted with three other painters, they kept pointing that out but it didn't distract me from doing a good painting. As East Coast painter Tm Nicholas would say " something needs to go in the center". More...
Waikiki Playground
Ref. No.: 18352 ** ** Size: 48" x 60" ** Inspiration: Copyright of Bill Regan of Utah
I painted this large painting directly in the mist of high summer and I was surprised I didn't get hit by surf boards going in and out of the water. To xapture the action as it happens, you as an artist have to be on top of your game. A lot of prep by doing your gesture drawing studies prior to going out on location. 80 % of the inspiration is in 100% of the perspiration. More...
Queens Beach Waikiki - 2
Ref. No.: 18354 ** ** Size: 48" x 60" ** Inspiration: Purchased by Robert Kiyosaki
As I was finishing up this painting at the end of Waikik beach, a voice asked me what I was going to do with the painting afterward. I said "take it to a gallery." Mr. Kiyosaki asked me to bring it to his house down the road, we hung it on the wall and it was the start of other commissions for Robert and his wife Kim. Just good people! More...
Ala Wai From Magic Island
Ref. No.: 18365 ** ** Size: 36" x 48" ** Inspiration: This painting allows me to learn and at the same time earn. I used more of a gray palette of colors and save my bright colors for the focal point with the marina and reflections. While I painted this at Magic Island at Ala Moana Beach Park, a foot path right behind me allowed a lot of beach people to weigh in comment-wise on the painting. I received their thumbs up! More...
Surfers At Waikiki
Ref. No.: 18370 ** ** Size: 48" x 60" ** Inspiration: Prints made by Pictures Plus for Marimar Hotel
This painting of the Surfers happened on the beach in real time and was also purchased off my easel. As it is illegal to sell on a public beach, arrangements were made to deliver the painting to the client - which hours before were just beach people.
As I make my living as a artist, when you capture a scene well enough, it's like you get paid spiritually when your senses get filled with endorphins. More...
Waikiki Beach Activity
Ref. No.: 18389 ** ** Size: 48" x 60" ** Inspiration: Painting in lobby of Pacific Beach Hotel.
As I painted this canvas on Waikiki beach, a party of people set up a tent, blocking my view looking Ewa. I asked them to give me 15 minutes to capture some details before setting it back up. Of course I worked on the foreground, with plein air painting, I have learned to go with the flow, to keep positive energy going. In Zen teachings it is said to " ride the horse in the direction it is running", or "swim with the direction of the ocean." More...
Waikiki Marina At Sunset
Ref. No.: 18394 ** ** Size: 24" x 30" ** Inspiration: This Painting was made into prints and hung at the Diamond Head Tower rooms for the Hilton Hawaiian village by Woody Kirtly designs.
This Sunset painting was done in 45 minutes as joggers came to a stop to watch my frenzied gesture of conducting with paint. I was trying to capture the essence, and I wanted to clean it up but I decided not to since it had all the character of that early evening. More...
