‘Ilio Kai
Inspiration: ‘Ilio Kai (Dog of the sea). This is the first monk seal I ever met over 30 years ago. She came to me at the boat dock on Tern Island, French Frigate Shoals, Hawaii. I called her Shnooky. It was like seeing the mermaid I had been dreaming about for a long time. More...

Dreams of Paradise - (A Honu Seal Sunset)
Inspiration: There are places where Monk Seals and Sea Turtles come ashore and occasionally rest beside each other. Monk seals will snuggle up to anything as I learned the first time I slept on the beach outside my tent on Laysan Island in the Northwest Hawaiian chain. This painting was inspired by a photograph taken by George Balazs, Hawaiian sea turtle expert. The original photograph can be seen in the book I authored called The Hawaiian Monk Seal. It was a cloudy shot that I recomposed with a Honu I saw at Punalu'u Beach, Big Island, Hawaii. I painted the scene with a sunset setting. It was a great challenge to create the multi colored sunset reflections on the animals More...
Haena Glass
Inspiration: A Hawaiian Monk Seal happens upon a glass float at the Haena district of Kauai’s north shore. Mount Makana, known as “Bali Hai” in the classic Movie “South Pacific”, is the background feature. The sparkling waters of Kauai are the perfect playground for the ‘Ilio-holo-kai or “dog of the sea”.

Sandy's Seal
