Lucky to live in Hawaii

Surf Competition North Shore

               Two years ago I painted this the day before the big
                Surf championship on the North Shore of Oahu.
                 Two years later it is not quite finished and another 
                 Championship is under way.  Time is wasting, go surf
                  (Or paint ),

Pali Puka a peak on the Pali Lookout in Oahu

Pali Puka


Original Acrylic of a plein air painting by Rebecca Snow of Honolulu


If you hike along the Koolau range you will see this sharp peak. I
got to paint beside some of my favorite artists on the island this day.
Mark N. Brown was the instructor for his once a week early morning
Plein air class. It was a typical beautiful day and there were hikers ascending
the jagged edge do the Pali Puka cliff. 

Come to Oahu and learn to paint. I promise you will love it.

Sandy Beach Shade -original painting by Rebecca Snow of Honolulu

Original painting by Rebecca Snow
"Sandy Beach Shade"
Oahu Hawaii
16 x 20
(painted plein air during Mark Brown's class on Saturday early morning July 27th 2013)

Monica posed for the class as we tried to cover up in the hot sun.
It was a beautiful day and the ocean was spectacular.
I learned a little and painted fast to capture the perfect moment.
I have several corrections to make but hope this post inspires you to paint
or at least sit in the little bit of shade at Sandy's Beach and watch the waves swoosh around the rocks.

PAINTING A PEACOCK and THE MISSING MOON


PAINTING A PEACOCK 

I am teaching Lia to paint and she came up with the idea of a 4 panel peacock. 
I was not sure it could work, but WOW was I wrong. I am so excited about this
project and it looks great at each stage of the painting. 




Lia is painting most of this with my instruction but I sent her home with the painting and "HOMEWORK". She is going to be painting the stems and greenery.

So , I was so smart and MS. KNOW IT ALL and we were plugg'in along painting when Lia realized we were missing the middle panel with the moon on it.


the missing moon appears



Okay, so that was a pretty obvious item that the teacher (me) should have picked up on.
There was a lot of giggling going on and the final painting will be wonderful but the "getting there" has been so much fun. I love the creative process. What a great way to spend a Friday morning.

Oh and Lia has named this Peacock LILA.
stay tuned for the next PEACOCK UPDATE


the most beautiful Samoan girl ever
