"Sunrise over Kuilima Bay"

6"x6" Oil on Canvas Panel

Another of my studies of the amazing clouds over Oahu, Hawaii.  I witnessed some amazing sunrises due to the time change the first few days we were there.  I saw a few people who must have been from the East Coast wandering around the hotel before the sun came up.

"Clouds Over Sunset Beach"

6"x 6" Oil on Canvas Panel

I haven't posted in quite some time! This was a small cloud study I did from our trip last winter to the north shore of the Hawaiian island of Oahu.  The clouds, sunrises and sunsets were so inspirational.

"Going Fishing"

6"x6" Oil on Canvas Panel
Available at Wildflowers Too Gallery, Barnegat Light, NJ

I've been working on series of paintings of people on the beach.  Working off of photographs that I have taken over the last several years.  I have lost two cameras in the past six months with the cards in them.  Luckily, I downloaded some into my computer  so I didn't lose all the photos taken since last summer.

"Lil Lulu"

8"x 10" Oil on Canvas Panel

My husband's Sandpiper catboat Lil Lulu floating in Barnegat Bay last summer.  Lil Lulu is the name the original owner gave to her.
Not sure what this summer will bring regarding boating on some parts of the bay.   The bay is going to be dredged for debris.
