I hope you are having a creative winter season wherever you are. Here in Hawaii, we have to deal with the waves getting big and the valleys getting green. But it's ok because we also get to enjoy the 7th Annual KAI Ocean Art Show in Hanalei, Kauai!
This year's show will be held at Tahiti Nui Luau Lounge and iTi Bar. I'll be there painting new originals, including art painted on surfboards that I shaped myself. If you're on Kauai, Please visit me and get your original art, prints and books autographed and personalized to your loved ones.
The KAI Show is one of the biggest supporters of the Kīlauea Point Natural History Association. This time our Art Tip is on Painting Sunsets. Our featured episode of the Painting In Paradise Show is "Painting Bird of Paradise".
We are progressing on our Papahānaumokuākea Song and Color book Project, and recently recorded Hoku Award Winning Artist Kawika Kahiapo singing the song at Spectrum Studios.
Our Favorite Photos will share with you some of the Fun we have been having along the way. Mahalo for all your aloha and continued support,
With Aloha from me,
Let your friends and associates know... please forward this email.

(Back to the top) - Great art tips
| Art Tip - Painting Sunsets - |
Things get exciting as we turn on the sunsets. It's the thing everyone wants to learn to do, but it is also one of the most difficult.
With your new skills of painting gradations and your understanding of the rainbow effect, you can now start your sunsets by first creating a rainbow-colored sky.
Then add the fire with the clouds. You'll even learn how to "build" the reflections on the sunset ocean.
Finally, you may add almost any kind of silhouette to the foreground to accent your sky.
Here's a link to an art tip on painting your sunset skies...

| Fernando Rueda Izagirre - I got today the matted prints. I have no words to express my feelings... I just order another two sets of prints. They will also be for Kelea and Mikel and I will be very grateful if you could also personalize these prints for them. I will frame all the matted prints and give them to the kids for Christmas (I have to hide them until then!). I'm sure they will love them so much. Read more of this testimonial & view image|
