Friday, November 22, 2013, from 5:30-8:00, is the Preview Reception for the Matchbox Plus IX Show at Cedar Street Galleries in Honolulu. The artwork, both 2D and 3D, are all originals and are all miniature size from a multitude of artists. For this exhibit, I submitted two of my coconut fiber works, “Eastside Palms Diptych” and “Ali’i Beach Palms”.  Both of these works are painted in acrylic on actual coconut tree fiber which has been prepared and mounted on cradled wooden panels.

In July, I traveled to Wisconsin and dropped off a small commission painting at the EAA AirVenture show in Oshkosh.  The painting was “Tropical Clipper”, done on actual coconut tree fiber (guinit).

During the air show, I did a live interview on EAA Radio which was simultaneously shown on Jumbotron screens set up on the grounds. Talk about nerve-racking….

I also met up with a couple of other Women Aviation Artists and here is the blog I wrote on the WAA website to finsh this post:

 

WAA members at EAA AirVenture 2013 Oshkosh

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 13, 2013 by womenavart

July 29 – August 4, 2013  were the dates for this year’s EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, also known as “The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration”. In attendance among the more than 500,000 attendees this year were WAA members Kristin Hill, Michelle Rouch and Pati O’Neal.  The three artists were involved in very different ways.

For Kristin Hill, it was her 36th year of exhibiting at the show.  She had a booth in Exhibit Hangar A, where she displayed examples of her work in the form of originals and reproductions as well as digital displays of some of her other works. Also at her booth this year as a guest was SR-71 pilot and author Terry Pappas.

Michelle Rouch was hosted this year by Ford to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Henry Ford’s birth. She and her works were on display at the Lincoln Lounge area of Ford’s exhibition tent. While on-site in the exhibit area, visitors were able to watch her work on one of her oil paintings.

Pati O’Neal has been attending EAA’s convention since 1994 and has volunteered in different capacities.  Part of her time this year was spent assisting the Texas Flying Legends Museum honor WWII veterans. She also had prints of her “Tuskegee Tales” for sale at the CAF’s RedTail Project exhibit.

Now that summer is done, it’s time to catch up. The Hale’iwa Arts Festival was a great weekend with fantastic weather and good crowds.  One of my paintings was featured in the magazine for the festival and another painting was used in the television commercial. Here’s a photo of my booth during the show.

The next few posts will be some of my recent paintings.  Now it is time to get back to painting….

Here is the blog I just wrote for the Women Aviation Artists website for an event I attended last month:

American Society of Aviation Artists 25th Annual International Aerospace Art Exhibition kicked off last month with a Forum and Awards Banquet in Pensacola, Florida at the National Museum of Naval Aviation.  It followed the museum’s Centennial Celebration of Naval Aviation.  This year’s exhibit has been given top viewing priority just inside the entrance and will be displayed through August 31, 2011. Out of 77 accepted works,  9 of them were done by Women Aviation Artists. Cher Pruys and Pati O’Neal both won awards in the General Aviation Category. Here are the accepted works:

Merana Cadorette – Off Duty at the I Bar
Crissie Murphy – For Those Who Keep ’em Flying
Pati O’Neal – Afternoon Delights – Second place award winner in the general aviation category given by Aviation Week and Space Technology

The title of this piece is Hawaiian and translates to “crazy nehu”. Nehu is the type of tidal pool fish in the painting. This work is another of my “scaintings”, a sculptural painting. I wanted to capture the liveliness and undulation that goes on in the tidal pools here in Hawai’i. It is oil on canvases mounted together, 23.5″ x 35.5″. It was included in the Windward Artist Guild’s 2010 juried show.

Nehu Pupule - Pati O'Neal

Here is a work of art that has been dubbed a “scainting”, since it is a cross between a painting and a sculpture. The medium is oil on canvas, five canvases mounted together. There were a few things that I was thinking about when I came up with this other than just painting a landscape scene of the Ko’olau Mountain Range as viewed from Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden in Kaneohe. I wanted to add to the textural feel and exemplify the peaks and valleys of the mountains.  The other thought I had was more of nostalgic 70s sense; as I was envisioning all this green, an image of an avocado green ranch style house with these rectangular window cutouts to see the view, came to mind. Anyway, this is the result. It is 37.5″ w x 28″h.

 

Ko'olau Vista - Pati O'Neal

Another small painting. Just 12 x 16 and is oil on canvas. This one done in a looser style of brushwork showing striking datura flowers. These flowers are also known as Angel’s Trumpets and you can see why. They change colors as they mature and swing easily in a breeze. I haven’t seen many plants on Oahu, but they are plentiful on Maui. I will be painting another of daturas shortly as this little gem is already sold.

Maui Daturas - Pati O'Neal

Newest little painting that I just completed. It is of a de Havilland Tiger Moth bi-plane  viewed from under the wing of a Piper Cub above farm fields. Both planes are considered easy to fly and were used as trainers in their respective countries. This painting is oil on canvas and is 11″h 14″w.

Tiger Moth and Cub - Pati O'Neal

I just found out that I got two paintings into this year’s upcoming ASAA (American Society of Aviation Artists) Exhibit in the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, FL. The two entries are “Taylorcarft Heading Home” and “Afternoon Delights.” Both are 18″h x 24″w and are oil on canvas.
