There are many reasons why a painting is (dare I say) the most important element in interior decorating. Paintings provide an instant color palette, create a focal point, bring a sense of texture, and make the room appear finished. But perhaps my favorite reason is this: The painting you chose tells a story about who you are.
Imagine your favorite daSilva Fine Art paintings hanging above the mantle of a fireplace in your living space or standing proudly above the bed in your master suite:
When I first arrived in Hawaii, I was quick to realize that the Moon & Turtle was my favorite restaurant in Hilo both for it's delicious local cuisine and modern ambience. I am beyond excited and honoured to announce my first solo exhibition in Hawaii at the Moon & Turtle starting December 4th.

Has it been one year already? I can hardly believe it. I remember this time last year, when I also participated in this show. At that time, I didn't know a single soul. This time, my happiest moment came when I realized I could recognize a few familiar faces in the crowd. A night of art, music, celebration and gratitude.
When you can't decide what fills your heart with more joy: getting your story printed in the paper, or the fact that your life partner had his first published photograph. I'm leaning towards the latter. A heartfelt "Thank You" to the Hawaii Tribune Herald, the Volcano Art Center and last, but certainly not least, to my husband Tyson.

After one year of living in Hawaii, I have to admit that going back to the "big city" felt surprisingly strange. At one point during our journey I turned to my husband and asked incredulously: " Where is everybody going? What is the rush?" No doubt island living is changing this born and raised city girl. I embrace the influences this massive life change is having on my art.

Announcing a new partnership with Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.
An alluring eruption of color, form and texture, this series of paintings was created in the lush jungle of Kapoho, Hawaii by abstract expressionist artist Samantha daSilva.
Acrylic paints converge with natural elements such as rain, sands and coconut fronds to create rich surface texture and remarkable energy on canvas. Dance with Waves and A Breath of Fresh Air are two of four original paintings by daSilva in the exclusive Schoolhouse Art Studio Collection.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art making process can be a vehicle for empowerment.
I am living proof.
