Honored to have two works accepted in the Abstract Only Exhibit at the Wailoa Art Center in August. Neida Bangerter from the Maui Arts & Culture Center serves as the juror and selected 57 works from the 206 entries.
New works in progress for the Hawaii’s Master Artists Series presented by Tiffany’s Art Agency and the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai.
Looking forward to sharing a special meal inspired by my art and talking with collectors during the Dinner with the Artists Experience on July 7th, and to the Collectors Reception and Talk Story on July 8th. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
A little something remarkable arrived in the mail today. Four copies of the exhibition catalog for the US Embassy Suva in Fiji with my art on the cover!
Honored to have been commissioned to participate and even further honored to be featured. Here’s to spreading the art & Aloha!
Every now and then a commission request comes in for a piece of furniture, and I enjoy those, too. This Connections console table was requested after my original set had sold. The interwoven colors in the top add to the shimmer of the curly koa, yet they are a real challenge to create. Despite the moments when I’m pushing my limits, happy clients make the entire experience a fun one from start to finish.
When a client emails a photo and shares how happy they are with the finished work of art, it feels amazing.
This piece was commissioned by a couple in Honolulu–a 48″ h x 60″ wide colorflow and koa painting featuring Diamond Head. Piecing together all the curly koa to create the mountain was a fun challenge. I enjoy making the grain directions flow to create the ridges and valleys. The painting itself always poses a challenge since its 90 percent me, and 10 percent chance. The colorflow process always continues to move and migrate after I’ve done my best, but it’s part of the thrill–never really knowing how it’s going to finally turn out.
Having my creations bring joy to my clients–that’s the priceless part of this life.
Finally catching on with Instagram and the Tiffany’s Art Agency app from iArtView.
Mahalo to the Waimea Ocean Film Festival, Tiffany’s Art Agency, and Aloha Expressionism for the great show opportunity. Had a wonderful time at the book autographing parties and met some wonderful collectors. It’s been great to experience the response to the new work first hand. Mahalo for all the kind words.
Love being able to deliver the work, see it in its final home, and experience the joy it brings to its new owners!
