Just a note....· March 10th, 2016

I just returned from O'ahu.  It was amazingly cool in the evenings.  It got down to 53 degrees, 3 nights in a row.  Burrrr.  Gorgeous in the day though.

I just missed the Eddie Aikau Surf Competition.  It was called off just at the last minute.  Although I didn't get to go, I watched it on television, the next week.  What an amazing sport, in such a beautiful spot.  Congratulations to to John John Florence for an excellent day of surf!

I'm back in the studio making more paintings!  Yay!  I just finished painting a koa lap steel guitar for an amazing musician.  Patti Maxine will be unveiling it, most likely at the Maui Steel Guitar Festival.

Me ke aloha pumehana,
