Ref. No.: 20461 ** Price: $600 ** Size: 16" x 20" ** Inspiration: This view overlooking Diamond Head was painted as a class demo for the Plein Air art class of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Outreach College.

Kaiser Bowls - 2
Ref. No.: 18335 ** ** Size: 36" x 48" ** Inspiration: This Plein Air painting was done at one of the best surf spots in the island, Da Bowls. The surfers there have such character that the casting agents of the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean" came through for an open call to any potential swashbucklers and asked them to "come as you are." I enjoy painting there and the guy who commands a lot of respect is the steersmen of Anuenue Canoe Club, Nappy Napoleon. He has an easy, humble way about him that keeps everyone "chilled". More...
Kewalo Basin Shadows (Diamond Head From Kakaako Waterfront Park)
Ref. No.: 20463 ** Price: $2800 ** Size: 24" x 36" ** Inspiration: I painted this right in front of the showers for the surfers as they paraded by after their surf session. Judging by their reactions, I think I did a good job. When they said my painting was "sick" or "bad" (surf language), I took it as a compliment. More...
Kewalo Basin Surfer (Surfer's Off Kewalo Basin - Location: Kakaako Waterfront Park)
Ref. No.: 20460 ** Price: $2400 ** Size: 24" x 36" ** Inspiration: All surfers have a favorite break and townee's talk about Kewalo Basin and what it was before. I enjoy listening to their stories as I paint. More...
The Sea Queen At Kewalo's
Ref. No.: 18392 ** ** Size: 24" x 30" ** Inspiration: This painting of the Sea Queen sampan "Kula Kai" fishing boat was created directly on the pier of Kewalo Basin in Kakaaoko. Of course when you paint on the pier, it attracts the fishermen who would tell me their stories, and I am all ears!

Kula Kai is one of the last remaining sampan tuna fishing boats left. The men with their poles would hook the Tuna standing up and hoistthe fish over their shoulder and into the hold and then fling the line back into the churning water in the same motion. It took strength, balance and the knack to keep it going while the school of fish were biting.I have been lucky to paint the other sampan boats over the years: "Orion", "Neptune" and as of 2013, the last surviving one "Kula Kai" More...
