These are my three entries in the Association of Hawaii Artists Mini Show. We hang the show tomorrow.

left - Leahi (Diamond Head) - painted with my own formula chocolate paint.

center - Bird on the Wire - ink and watercolor powder - plus it will have a Quick Response (QR code) so that I-phone users can listen to Leonard Cohen singing his famous "Bird on the Wire"

right - Lavender Spikes - oil  - done with a palette knife.

Last year, we had 185 entries and I won the Second Place award.  No idea what the competition will be this year.  I love all three of my entries, so hope others do.  Sorry that the photo had reflections - bright sunny afternoon.

Winners will be announced at the reception on Nov. 4.  Will let you know how it goes.

Mea, good luck! I like the lavender spikes! Curious to know the results. Keep us informed!

Thanks, Nolan, Patricia, and Mary Lou,

The reception was lovely - live music - food - lovely country club setting.

No sales, but we all had fun visiting with each other.

Thanks, Patricia and Mary Lou.

None of us expect sales in that venue because it is a private club and the members seldom even look at our work.  I sold one painting from there two years ago and I think that makes me one of the only ones.

We hang there just to socialize really.

Lovely evening at artists reception at Honolulu Country Club.  My Lavender Spikes painting was really too small for this show but I really love it and wanted to share it for others to see.  I have  three other paintings in the show also

Thank you to my PB buddy Liz Au and her husband Wyman for being there to support me.

Good News, Folks.

Three of my chocolate paintings sold recently, so I am quite pleased.  Plus two other mixed media ones sold in a mini show (at the best gallery in Honolulu!!!).

Since the chocolate is so popular, I took a friends suggestion and tried adding food coloring to my cocoa paint mixture.  Here is my value studies.  Top left - chocolate   Top right - chocolate with yellow food coloring

Bottom left - chocolate with red food coloring   Bottom right - chocolate with green food coloring

Have waxed and varnished them to protect them.

I have a three-panel matted frame, so will take the three best and put them in that frame.  Will post once it is all done.
