Paintings and prints are now available at Waipio Valley Artworks.  Yesterday I presented originals and prints to the manager and she accepted over 50 prints and 6 originals!

I am just back from a 2-day painting workshop with Ed Kayton.   Ed has been painting for 28 years now, and for many of those years he worked in the advertising field.  He is mainly self-taught at this point although he studied art in college.  Apparently at that point in time, they didn’t teach what he wanted to learn which is realism.  So, he studied, and still studies the old masters to understand how they painted the incredible pieces of art that they did, and incorporates that knowledge into his own painting.  Now, he takes some of his time to pass on what he has learned about art, and about painting.  So, if you are in the neighborhood and are serious about painting, this is the opportunity of a career.

I am focused on becoming the best painter I can possibly be.  I came to painting later, having started just over 4 years ago and I have a lot of catching up to do.   I don’t kick myself about that any longer.  I began painting when I was ready to do so, apparently I had some lessons to learn first.  It’s called life.  I’m painting now, (oh boy am I painting!) and the perfect teacher presented himself at the right time.  What I can tell you is that I don’t take it for granted.  Not one little bit.  Painting is what I love, and I’m here to stay!
