Small works

I've been working on some small pieces in the studio the past couple of weeks. There's an upcoming show I want to enter, but it is also both good practice and satisfying. It's nice to be loose and bold and not worry about messing-up a big canvas. And it's nice to have a finished piece in an hour or two.

Here are a couple that were done with plein air and photo reference from my trip last year to Kauai.

Outriggers, oil, 6" x 6"

Hanalei view, oil, 6" x 6"

Love the snow BUT.... ALOHA!!! :) These are great and will do so well in the show. The palm trees are such simple compelling shapes - so strong. Good luck!!!

Can hear the wind making the palm fronds chatter. This is a very nice little paintings.
