Happy to share that my painting "The Dawning"
received the 1st Place Award. (Association of Hawaii Artists)
This special exhibit, the 50th Annual AHA Spring Art Exhibition,
was themed to reflect the show's title "The Aloha Show"
From the prospectus:
ALOHA - Hawaiian for love, affection, peace,
compassion... not just a word but a way of life.
AHA's Annual Aloha Show welcomes artists
to submit works of art that celebrate Aloha.

How long does it take to make art?
(Shown: "Current Event", 24" X 30", Acrylic)
I worked on this piece for more than 60 hours.
A painting is a picture of an idea. So, I tell myself…
”Just say it. Make it happen. Get busy…
This shouldn’t take long. Be bold and keep moving.
Get on with it and move on to the next one…”
There is unpredictability and unfolding of the process.
There are new perspectives, details, adjustments, insights.
and... it is taking longer that I thought to finish. Every time.
I like the way Nora Roberts put it in an NPR interview.
She is a successful, popular Romance writer.
The interviewer asked her about her prolific output.
He said, “You have written 193 books! That’s impressive.
How long does it take to write one?"
Her answer… ”It takes until it’s finished.”
That’s how I know a painting is finished…
...when it’s done. That's how long.

Happy Season of the Light to all as we turn away from darkness
and return to a more illuminated perspective.
December 9, 2016
it was Tuesday, December 6, 2016...
As of that fateful day,
is now improved, enhanced, evolved,
reframed, streamlined, updated, upgraded,transformed and launched,
kicking and streaming,
into the cyberworld of pixels & imagination.
Thank you to Mckenna Hallet
whose artist-friendly technical guidance
and deep e-marketing expertise were
essential and much appreciated.
This New Look web sight is a work in process,
so stay tuned for developments...
