Lahaina Boats

Pin It
"Lahaina Boats"
Oil, 10" x 8"on canvas panel.
$300 unframed.


I had fun painting this one today. I have used this reference photo probably ten times for paintings and I love how they all look so different! This photo is taken in Lahaina Harbor in Maui. I am heading there next week for a week long business trip and I look forward to getting more great photos!
I received some great news over the weekend. My painting titled "Library in Bloom" posted in my last post was juried into the California Art Club exhibition "South Pasadena: City of Trees". I was thrilled to learn that my blogging friend Marian Fortunati also had a painting selected. We had lunch after I dropped off my painting and we both lamented that the art was so good and we didn't have a chance. Thank goodness we weren't judging!
