"Aloha" --- SOLD



I love the idea of doing paintings of fruit arranged in little dramas. I don't necessarily want to specify what the drama is, but rather suggest something that gives the viewer something to ponder. Perhaps. This one is titled "aloha" which can either be a hello or goodbye.

Well, the sitter I mentioned finding recently bailed after 2 weeks. I've been looking for a new one and today I think I found Mary Poppins! I don't want to jinx this, but she seems so great. Soon I will be back to painting large on a regular basis (along with these dailies)! Wahoo! She'll be watching him while I'm teaching my next workshop in Santa Fe, in a little over a week.

Hi Carol. Looks like they're waving their hands to answer the question.

Carol, this one makes me smile. "Aloha" is the ideal title. Also, I love your boat paintings.

What a keen and sensitive eye you have along with the skills to communicate what you see and interpret what you feel about it, coupled with your own unique expression. I keep coming back.

Hi Carol, these pears remind me of the surfers lined up to catch a wave on the North Shore of O’Ahu. Oh how I miss the sunshine.

I am registered for your second week workshop in Red Deer, Summer Series. I am really looking forward to meeting you. I too have a little boy, two and a half. I appreciate your challenges of juggling painting and family. The painting a day group are such inspiration for me but you and Karin Juick especially.

Ms. Marine,
What a spark you are. There is nothing left to be said.
If I study your brush strokes any closer, my orbits will melt. I'm in a fever with anticipation for Santa Fe.

Your paintings have been my morning prayer this last year. Well done, indeed!

I know what you mean about groups of things to play off each other. I have many single focus paintings, so recently I've been getting into these combinations and I love the way you create visual relationships that "talk" to each other!
