Windy Hawaiian Shores

Pin It
"Windy Hawaiian Shores"
Oil, 8" x 10"
$400.00 unframed.

I am on the beautiful island of Hawaii just north at Kona in the Mauna Lani area. The weather is beautiful and of course I wish I had more time to enjoy the incredible beach here at the hotel. But each morning I am able to take about a 75 minute walk along the shore and I must say ... what an incredible way to start out the day!
I had a chance to sneak over to Lahaina Galleries yesterday to see Darrell Hill's latest paintings. He is one of my favorite artists and I really enjoy seeing his art up close and personal. His colors are stunning and I just love his art. I will probably get back there again sometime this week to see his paintings again!
Finally I have to wish Stanford good luck today up in Eugene, OR. They have an interesting game today and the winner could easily be headed to the Rose Bowl. It sure would be fun to host a big Rose Bowl party this year if the Cardinal win! Keep your fingers crossed!
