Thanks, Danielle.

I had a famous artist in Hawaii go over it with me today and he gave me some tips to make it better.  I am reworking it now and will have it ready for you folks to see tomorrow.

I need to have three paintings ready for a new exhibit at Honolulu Country Club by January 15.  I have  decided to make all three line and wash pieces as the theme is "Play It Forward."  So we are being challenged to play up our newest artwork.

Well, this is it - Makapu`u Lighthouse on the south east coast of Oahu.


I still have time to tweak it, so please give me your thoughts to make it better.  It is 11 x 14 on HEMP paper.

Thanks, Danielle,  Mary Lou, Patricia, KathyS, and Steve.  Your encouragement helped push me to try line and wash.

Thanks, Dennis, for putting the lighthouse lesson out there; I took the skills learned from it and applied them to this piece.

Thanks, Dennis.  I thinking I am really taken by line and wash - thanks for the lessons!!!!  THANK YOU!


Thanks, Maria.  I see what you mean and will darken the inside of the roof today.  Appreciate your suggestion.

Thanks, Val.  I am going to have some of these made into postcards for my friends.
