Clown Fish

AA130104-Clown

This painting was a direct result from a scuba diving experience. We stayed for quite a while on the bottom of the sea so I could observe this clown fish in it’s natural environment.  Watching the fish helped me portray what you see on the canvas.

Scuba diving was a big enhancement of observation during the marine painting era of the 80s.  What a big help to be in the actual habitat  of your star, with all the colors dancing around you.

Sea Wise

AA130119-Sea-Wisespace-t

I envisioned myself under the water with the dolphins and with scuba diving I could study how it looked. I imagined what it would look like for a dolphin to be breaking the underwater while speckled light played on them. I sensed their high intelligence and awareness and wanted to convey that.

Place of Sanctuary

AA130118-Place-of-Sanctuary

I have visited this amazing place a number of times, always fascinated by the history and location.

I started the first sketches out on the lava flow in front of the heiah, and soon started the oil painting. I omitted any other newer houses along the shoreline.

space-tPuʻuhonua o Hōnaunau National Historical Park is a United States National Historical Park located on the west coast of the Big Island of Hawaii.

The historical park preserves the site where, up until the early 19th century, Hawaiians who broke a kapu (one of the ancient laws) could avoid certain death by fleeing to this place of refuge or puʻuhonua. The offender would be absolved by a priest and freed to leave.

Defeated warriors and non-combatants could also find refuge here during times of battle. The grounds just outside the Great Wall that encloses the puʻuhonua were home to several generations of powerful chiefs.

The park contains a reconstruction of the Hale O Keawe heiau, which was originally built by a Kona chief named Kanuha in honor of his father King Keaweʻīkekahialiʻiokamoku. It was believed that additional protection to the place of refuge was received from the mana in the bones of the chiefs. It survived several years after other temples were destroyed.

Humpback and Baby

AA130109-Humpbackspace-t

We are underwater seeing the Humpback mother whale and baby above.

Females typically breed every two or three years. The gestation period is 11.5 months, yet some individuals have been known to breed in two consecutive years. The peak months for birth are January, February, July, and August, with a one to two year period between humpback births. They are from 1 to 2 tons at birth (13 to 16 ft. in length), and can live up to 48 years.

space-tDriving south on the Oregon coast I noticed a pullover lookout spot and turned in.

There was a magnificent overlook of two bays and rock pinnacles. I was so moved by this view that I decided I would have to paint this.

To The painting I added fog and a coastline that would carry you far into the distance. I also included pelicans and in the foreground, sea lions. From Bodega Bay California, I added the ice plants and rock formations
to the foreground.

Isle Pacifica

AA140109-Pacifica

space-t

“For years I was fascinated with the north shore cliffs of Molokai Island, Hawaii, which are the world’s tallest sea cliffs (3,300 feet high).”

“A 3-day yacht trip along this coast with friends helped to solidify my intention to paint this major oil.”

space-tWidely considered to be the tallest sea cliffs in the world, the Molokai sea cliffs are between 3,000 and 4,000 feet high and are located along the island’s north coast.

The Molokai sea cliffs are the result of the Makanalua Penninsula falling into the sea due to the erosion from the seawater pounding away at its base.  What you see now – all 14 miles of it – is what was left standing after the collapse.  The sea cliffs themselves are a deep, velvety emerald green and during wet seasons you can see waterfalls coursing down to the ocean.
