  • Boneyard

    , ,

    The title “Boneyard” is a term used by surfers to describe the impact zone of a wave that breaks over reef in very shallow water.  It is a place where you don’t want to be caught off guard and if you are, you could easily end up a skeleton stuck to the ocean floor.

    Boneyard fuses Mexican Day of the Dead iconography with Hawaiian culture and signifies the similarities these two cultures share through their geographic location and relationship with the ocean.

    This painting was done with acrylic, ink, and enamel on a 15″x24″ birch panel.  The frame is custom built from the endemic Koa tree of Hawaii and is embellished with brass tacks and rope details.  Koa is a very hard wood and in the Hawaiian language it means brave, bold, fearless, or warrior.  With the frame, the total measurements are 30″x36.5″

  • Honu Ofrenda

    , , ,

    This painting depicts a Honu with an ofrenda on it’s back. The ofrenda is an offering in Mexican culture and often includes food, flowers, and candles.  The ofrenda is very common in the Day of the Dead celebration and is used to invite your departed loved ones back for a night of earthly delights.  I chose to show the Honu with a Hawaiian style ofrenda that includes a tea leaf offering and native Hawaiian flowers.  Since the honu is endangered it carries the ofrenda for it’s lost brethren.

  • Sergeant Tiki

    I’m calling this one “Sergeant Tiki” and it is a salute to how returning soldiers, from the South Pacific, introduced tiki culture to Americans after WWII. Many of these vets brought home tropical souvenirs and told great stories of their adventures from this far away paradise. “Sergeant Tiki” also reflects my own personal experience in the army, as well as my residence in Hawai’i. I spent 4 1/2 years in the military and was stationed in a small Bavarian town in Germany called Kitzingen. I later got deployed to Macedonia and Kosovo (the Disneyland of Europe) and spent about 8 months there. Now that I teach art here in Hawai’i, I make it a point to tell my students about my service and deployment, and I always get the same question: “Did you kill anyone?” And since I want to seem like a tough guy, I usually respond with, “I’m not allowed to talk about that”. Truth be told when my dad asked me, “What did you do in the Army son?” I answered with one word, “HIDE!” So Sergeant Tiki really encompasses the kind of soldier I was, I wanted to appear tough, but honestly I just wanted to sit on the beach and drink Mai Tais while I threw Pineapples at my commanders.

    This painting was made with acrylic on birch panel and measures 5″x7″.  It comes in a rustic wood frame bringing the total size to 11.5″x9.5″.

    The original painting is made with watercolor and ink on 140 lb. cold press paper.  It measures 5.5″x8.5″ unframed and comes in a clear protective sleeve with a stiff backing.
