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.

One of my earliest memories is of going to the beach at Kahana Bay. Located on the east side or windward side of Oahu, this beach has sugary fine sand with gently lapping waves, a perfect choice for small children. The beach park has lots of shade from Ironwood and Hau trees making it also a great choice for picnicking and camping. There is a hiking trail across the road on the mountain side that leads into Kahana Valley. The view across the bay is the subject of this recent painting called Kahana Bay Splendor. It is 18″h x 36″w oil on canvas.
