Have art, will travel – A solo exhibit in Hawaii
From September 2010 – January 2011 I locked myself in my ‘art cave’ and flung paint. Bright, bold paint. Paint in colors that Alaskan artists don’t normally get to use in winter time.
…I could get use to this.
The venue is East Hawaii Cultural Center in Hilo, Hawaii. I had submitted a proposal to their gallery committee in late 2009 and was selected for their 2011 calendar.
Below are the 10 paintings I created for the exhibit.
The title of the exhibition is “Birds of Paradise” Flora & Feathered Fauna of Hawaii. Here are some snapshots of the opening night. Many thanks to Renee Robinson for many of them!
It was such a blessing to go on this journey and better yet to have my Grandmother join me. She signed me up for my first painting class 13 years ago. How fitting to have her here with me for this amazing experience!
On February 26th the paintings go on to Kona, HI where they will find new homes through Rumley Art and Gallery at the King Kamehameha Hotel.
Still pinching myself as I write this blog post. To have this much fun for a living is almost too much! I am so very thankful.
Thanks for reading!
