Manana Island

Nope, not gonna look out the window and see the snow falling, no way. This one's for me! Remembering one of the most beautiful sights in my life: driving north on Kalanianaole Highway on Oahu and seeing Manana and Kaohikaipu Islands from Makapu'U Beach for the first time..

From a photo taken during my first visit to Hawaii, in February 2008, this painting is about 5" x 7" acrylic on gessoed mat board, protected in a cream-colored mat. As with all these little studies, the text above is handwritten on the back of the painting, which is also signed and dated.

San Elijo Storm Surf

Rainstorms along the California coastline produced heavy surf and much erosion of the bluffs. Here at San Elijo State Beach, the skies cleared between storms, providing campers with a reward for waiting out the deluge. Just north of San Diego, in a rather urban environment, the beach and lagoon at San Elijo are a refreshing taste of wild southern California.
