Back to the beaches on Fridays so here are a few works. Top one is 8x10 at Kaloko Ponds where I turned away from the ocean and painted the pond and the mountain in the distance.
Next is the Hale or canoe hut at Honokohau Park, a favorite subject of mine. This was a 4x10 quick sketch in oil. I did a larger one that day put haven't edited the photo yet.
Third down is the Captain Cook monument in the distance from across Kealakekua Bay.
Last is Kua Bay where I emphasized the sky that was fantastic when I arrived at 9 AM.

Been busy moving so only painting on Friday mornings with our Kona outdoor group. Did three works of very similar style, fast and loose, with people enjoying the beaches shown much more than before. Top is Kahaluu beach park with St. Peter's church tucked in the trees. Then is Magoon's beach, and last is Magic Sands, now just over a half mile below the new house location. Sold a painting to an Alaska admirer recently and after I shipped the painting there I realized I didn't take a photo of it. Shows how the exhaustion of moving affects the brainpower. Glad that task is almost behind me.
