Kavin at Trends is hosting a Wine and Cheese party on Friday Nov. 13th I will have my art work there, the 3 large canvas paintings that I started last week in store. It is a GREAT store with furniture from India, very different. My art meshes with the style of furniture that Kavin is offering. I do hope to see a great turn out for the Friday event in the Ward area. Please stop by Fridays from 5:30 to 8 for our Meet and GREET.
Trends is located at 1200 Ala Moana Blvd in Honolulu .
I have a series of towel headed chicks. I am still working on this series and they are up on walls all over the place. This one is on Vanessa's Hall Entry in Richmond Virginia. I would have preferred to paint Vanessa but could never capture her loveliness.
I managed this painting without ever meeting the dogs in the painting.
It is always best to get to know your subject matter. Painting portraits from a snapshot means you lose the feeling of personality. I only hope I caught a little of their personality for Jackie's parents who love these dogs. This painting is owned by Jackie Newman of West Point.
The art community in O'ahu is still a mystery to me. I have a list of contacts and hope to meet someone with studio space soon. I am also looking for Plein-aire groups in Honolulu. If you come to this lovely island look me up and I'll paint with you. I am getting the word out that I give art lessons. It is a long way from Fife and Drum paintings to Hula girls but it is a wonderful journey.
