  • Portrait of an ‘Alala

    The Hawaiian crow or ‘Alalā is endemic to the Hawaiian Islands and is considered by natives to be a family god or ‘aumakua.  Unfortunately it is extinct in the wild and there are only about 150 left in captivity!  However thanks to the efforts of organizations like the Keauhou Bird Conservation these Hawaiian Crows have had a safe haven and will be reintroduced into their natural habitat on the Big Island of Hawaii in September 2016!

    This piece measures 5×7 inches and was painted with acrylic and enamel on a canvas panel and comes in a rustic wood frame. The original work can also be purchased at the Volcano Art Center in Hawaii’s Volcano National Park.

  • Pu’uhonua O Honaunau

    ,

    I painted this tiki gods piece as a submission into the Maui Arts and Cultural Center Hawaii National Parks Centennial 2016.  The site of Pu’uhonua O Hanaunau is a unique blend of natural and cultural resources where the idyllic Hawaiian landscape is made sacred by human influence.  The power of the site is emphasized in the painting through bold line work and exaggerated colors that highlight the significance of this historic place.  The frame is constructed to enhance the painting in the same way that the structural elements of Pu’uhonua O Hanaunau enhance the site.

    The original paining is painted with acrylic and enamel on birch panel and measures 48″x20″.  The frame is custom built from black walnut and is enhanced with rope details bringing the total size to 34″x61″.

  • Cyclops Jawa

    The squirrels at the Disney Parks are some of the most brazen little creatures I’ve ever witnessed.  We watched one go from stroller to stroller and just ransack everyones left overs and bags.  The day before, we were in Hollywood Studios at the Star Wars Launch Bay, where we met a couple of Jawas.  Apparently they will trade little trinkets with you if you ask them to, but for some reason they refused my offer and traded with my wife instead.  I tried a few more times to trade things with them but nope they weren’t into it.  So that’s why I made this painting of sweet squirrel vengeance!  Maybe now they will trade something for their eye back!
