Yukon

AA131334-Yukonspace-t

A Small group of Maui friends and I visited for two weeks, at a wilderness camp in the Yukon in Canada.

Near Whitehorse, we all had an amazing time camping, hiking, canoeing and being around the campfire in evenings.

I set up my easel to paint the scene one day and included our wilderness guide, host and year round resident in his canoe, Mr. Dick Person. The nearby mountain looked very much like an open book, named “Book Mountain”.

Adventures of Windjammer Cottage

AA131333-Cottagespace-t

On a journey in a  house bus we ended up at a magnificent overlook in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

I set up for painting and started the largest portion of this landscape on location.

The Figures were people we met on the way. We finally landed in Iowa where the pig came into focus. The English Tudor cottage on a truck was actually a vehicle I owned in California, drove and lived in until 1974, when I moved to Hawaii.

Volcano

Painted during my first months in Maui, Hawaii

 

This came to me through amalgamations of stories in history and volcanic eruptions.

The smallest number of people per square inch than any miniature I have painted so far.

The Fleeting

This painting is based on an unusual dream. I used my own hand as a model to connect with a panther in a peculiar temple image, that seemed to echo from some distant memory I had.

Senso-ji Pagoda

AA131328-Senso-jispace-t

Ever intrigued over Japanese architecture and pagodas, after visiting Japan and Nepal, I continued to paint more versions.

A pagoda is the general term in the English language for a tiered tower, built in the traditions originating in historic East Asia or with respect to those traditions, with multiple eaves common in Nepal, India, China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Burma and other parts of Asia.

space-tSome pagodas are used as Taoist houses of worship. Most pagodas were built to have a religious function, most commonly Buddhist and were often located in or near viharas. This term may refer to other religious structures in some countries.  These old wooden structures were built without nails.

Makena Landing

AA131336-Landing

I lived in this very special area of Maui and painted what I considered one of the nicer views.

This view came from a small cove across to a tiny island towards Redhill and little beach behind it. This was painted on location.

Lovers Pool

AA131335-Poolsspace-t

A lovely swimming hole we enjoyed visiting and spending the afternoon, was near where I lived in rural Kipahulu, Maui.

One day I grabbed my portable easel and paintbrushes and headed up there. I brought with me a nice large piece of jadeite in  waiting, painted this piece on the rock all during the full day I was there.
