My name is Erika Swartzkopf and I'm an artist/musician and comic living in Hawaii, originally from Pennsylvania. I fell in love with and am inspired daily by the fabulously bright colors of the ocean and the mountains of this gorgeous island of oahu and hope to spread my abstract watercolor art and a large order of music, aloha & comedy with my 'Female Comics of Hawaii' group to the rest of the world~ Join me!
What a fabulous sunday! First, Joe and I drove to Waimanalo to boogie-board the fabulous, small waves there. It was cloudy when we got there but soon the sun came out - love the gorgeous blue-green of the ocean, we've both been so busy we haven't been out there in a while and we caught some great waves! Then later, I went to see Diane Rubio and Buck Giles and their wonderful Hawaiian music band at Queen's Surf Cafe & Lanai. Steel-guitar, bass, guitar and ukulele by the setting sun, Ahhhhh! lucky I live Hawaii~
Rabbit Island, headed to Waimanalo
Awesome small waves for me!
Joe's portrait of both of us (I think he just wanted a pic of my ass, hahaha!)
Yes, the water really is that color~ portrait of my Joe, what a cutie!
Joe, looking like a movie-star here!

Lars showed up to see the band
The band was awesome, I love the sound of steel-guitar especially, it sounds magical to me!
Hi All! I spent some time this weekend at Tongg's and Queen's beaches and got some great shots. I also finished up four mini-paintings, which I am putting here as a special, spring sale! Usually $50, I am selling them for $25+ ship til the end of March.
