This piece is inspired by my last trip to Hawaii. We stayed in Honolulu for a few days. Our hotel had this lovely view of the Ala Wai Canal and the mountains in the background. I am often inspired by photos I take on my travels. This image is from a photo I took early in the morning.
Yes it's true that Honolulu feels a little like Las Vegas by the beach. However, I still believe that are parts of Honolulu which still have retained their natural beauty, and remind you of a slower pace of life.
Most of us are captivated by beautiful imagery in our daily life: a vibrant sunset, a beautiful piece of architecture, a garden. And yet, with our busy lives, we don’t always have time to enjoy what we already have in our surroundings. I am an artist living in San Diego, painting for over 20 years. My daytime profession is in healthcare, but my artful spirit calls me to create on a regular basis. I began experimenting with oil paints as a young teen. In college I continued my endeavors with various media, and accomplished the equivalent of a Minor of Art in college. After college I pursued a graduate degree in psychology, yet still I continued painting. I have apprenticed under Tetrachromat Artist Concetta Antico in San Diego. Through her instruction, I became the oil painter and artist I am today. In spite of my day job in healthcare, I am regularly compelled to paint and share meaningful images with others in my own colorful and playful style.
