The Female Comics at the Dragon Upstairs 8-27-12

We had a fabulous show at the Dragon Upstairs in Chinatown in downtown Honolulu last night on 8-27-12. Seven great female comics performed and a band. Our Maui friends Doug Wyckoff (host) and Teresa Sickels performed from Power Up Comedy. Headliners were the awesome Sheila Bown and Su Yates. The place was completely packed and I have decided to get a bigger venue for the next show, stay tuned!

Summer is over! Random shots from sweet summer

Random, way-cool shots from this summer, some digital art photos I've been experimenting with and a cool, comedy open-mics shot from the Station Bar. End of summer doesn't mean a change of weather here in Hawaii, we are lucky to enjoy the beach all year~ Stay tuned for my newest Jellyfish painting, coming soon!

 The next Female Comics of Hawaii show ~ Monday 8/27/12

Kaimana fish, a new painting and a summer jam party

Got some awesome pics of a surgeonfish at Kaimana Beach, finished a new abstract painting, performed comedy at the open mic at Station Bar 8-2-12 and hosted a fabulous summer jam party at our Kapahulu house. How is it August already? Two of our favorite bands showed up to jam, the Honolulu Lounge Lizards and Troubadour Trio, or the Troubadour lizards! Life is good~ Aloha~
