Past Projects
30 Paintings in 30 Days, American Samoa                     2012
Painted in the library to demonstrate painting to visiting school classes and library patrons.
Paintings purchased by the Feleti Barstow Library in Utulei for the permanet collection.
Life-sized whale tail sculpture for  Molokai Fish & Dive in Kaunakai, Hawaii.
Painted with the help of neighborhood kids.
I grew up with parents who taught me how to use tools and build things.
The tail is made of wood that was on it's way to the dump, using wood boat building techniques. Lathe was nailed onto a sculpted plywood frame.
There's a chance it's even sea worthy. Since the tail could be viewed through the windows I  painted a spine on the back.
90 Paintings in 90 Days, Molokai, Hawaii, 2011
A project to become a better painter through daily practice. The clam shell was so frustrating that I scraped all the paint off the canvas and left it in the series unfinished, because it looked better than what I was trying to paint.
It was the first one to sell. Paintings that are still available are included in my current price list. Please drop a note to request a copy:
