Body Figure III

A birthday gift to myself. Just what I've wanted. Waited 6 years for this subject to paint on canvas. This is the 1st and hopefully

not the last. I finished and signed this painting on my 34th birthday.

Huntington Beach Pier

My favorite season has come. Today, for the first time this year, I finally jumped in our pool. I guess summer is here.
6 years ago, I painted this beautiful pier of Huntington Beach. The most beautiful pier I've ever seen so far. 6 years ago, I went to this pier at least once a week. I have painted it 3 times and I'm still thinking of making a 4th one since I have sold 2 of the 3 I had.

Father & Child

I'm due to make another painting like this one. I painted this 4 years ago. Now that I have another toddler, I should make one for her too. Hopefully this summer.

Easter Eggs

We decorated some Easter eggs today. It was so much fun, we took all the other eggs out of the fridge after decorating the boiled ones. 4 yr. old James loved it so much that he wanted the eggs to sleep with him in his bedroom tonight.

It's been a while since my last posting. Here's another one of the few portraits that i've done. The subject is one of my old students in Papua New Guinea...10 years ago. This picture was taken during their cultural show in August 2001. I didn't put this on canvas until I left PNG and started missing it. Such a beautiful place with interesting culture and people.

Medium: Oil on Canvas
Subject: Pauline Kalal

Miss Travelling

A few days ago, I posted a video of my old trip to Asia on The subject on this painting was actually one of the kids that I met at the Longneck Village in Thailand. The children were beautiful and so innocent about the world outside their community. They all wore a big smile in their faces except for this one in my painting. She seemed very curious about what went on around her.

I was recently reunited with my old students in Papua New Guinea. Thanks to Facebook. Although not very many of them have access to the internet, the few that do will spread the word.
The best 2 years of my life before I got married was spent with these people. Needless to say, they have become an important part of my journey. When I left PNG, I missed it so much that I was able to paint a few of my memories from the land of the unexpected. I still hope that someday I would get a chance to go back and visit.
