I am participating in two shows for October/November.
Honolulu Hale (City Hall)
Asia-Pacific Arts Consortium’s Pamana Show will take place at Honolulu Hale from September 27 – October 13, 2016. The reception is on October 6, 2016 from 4 – 6 pm. I will be there , but I will by necessity arrive late by at least a half hour. Three of my works have been juried in for display, “Fiery Sunset”, “Honu Laule’a” and “Sea Lions”.
WAG 57th Annual Member Show
Windward Artists Guild is holding its 57th annual Member’s show at the Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden Gallery October 2 – 28, 2016. Please join us at our reception Saturday, October 8 from 5:00 – 7pm. I plan to attend the entire reception. Two of my works will be on display, “Understory”, and “Waterlilies”.
Today I delivered several of my art pieces to Brilhante Custom Picture Framing and Fine Art in Kailua. It is wonderful to be among a talented group of artists, and to sell work in a framing store where it’s easy and convenient to buy a frame for the painting. It’s also pleasure to be in a gallery that is at the epicenter of my personal inspiration right here in Kailua.

Tracy, the owner of the gallery, and her staff have years of experience and a wonderful eye for which frame best compliments each piece. I have been very pleased with all the framing they have done for me over the years. A good frame unifies the painting with the rest of the room, creating unity in the interior, but also creating a border that allows the painting to stand out from the wall. There is harmony between the art and the surrounding furniture if they are similar in style or materials. I have always found great options for each of my pieces at Brilhante (with plenty of help from Tracy and Nicole!) It’s nice to know that anyone who buys my paintings there can easily have them framed, and the quality will be top notch!
As my Paradise Painters Show is drawing to close, I realize I never posted the results of the prior show, the Windward Artists Guild Summer Show. I am pleased to announce that my triptych, “New Day at Kawainui” took best in show at the Windward Artists Guild Summer Show. The Juror for the show was Richard Duggan, whose credentials astound me. The show looked great, with many artists presenting beautiful work. Here are a couple of photos of the show.
