Thank you, King kamehameha!!

Great weekend - I finished a cool, new watercolor called the "Psychedelic Tree", 15" x 11", email me here if interested: and we ventured to Waimanalo for King Kamehameha Day today, ran across fabulous, small waves and a sunny, gorgeous day~ a good workout and Joe even ran into some friends from work in the ocean. Yes, the water really IS that turquoise, lucky we live Hawaii. Afterwards, we shared an awesome fish burrito at Serg's Mexican Kitchen Nalo, a cute, little restaurant nearby. Aloha!

You know you live on a small island when you run into your co-workers in the ocean!

Odds and Ends

Hi Everyone!
Been doing comedy open mics and showcases and have some COOL pics from Makua, hiking, beach and comedy that didn't make it into the last posts, check 'em out. Coming soon, a new painting, "The Psychedelic Tree" and more beach pics~ Aloha from Hawaii!!

 Me snorkeling at Makua Beach for the birthday campout - it's good to be 45!

Panorama of Makua from the water ~ Doesn't it kinda look like you are wearing a mask and snorkel? This is an undeveloped valley, no houses or buildings, it looks exactly the way it looked hundreds of years ago. The military used it for bombing practice for years until environmental groups stopped it (hopefully) for ever. Makua means "the parents" in Hawaiian. It's a really powerful place.
