Life is interesting. Although I knew that we were moving to an island with 5 active volcanoes, I honestly did not think that we would experience a volcanic eruption of this magnitude in our lifetime. Wishful thinking? Naïve? Both? The reality is that Kilauea volcano did erupt, and the course of our lives has been changed forever.
Thank you for the sweet, inspiring messages of love and concern we have received since the recent volcanic eruptions, and consequent evacuation from our newly built home on the Big Island of Hawai'i. We have decided to spend a few days on Maui with family and friends for perspective, and some much needed R&R. Your love, friendship and support during this time is gratefully felt and extremely appreciated.

I knew that the city of Hilo had a lot of murals, but I did not realize how many until we went on a mural scavenger hunt! I must have photographed at least 25, and I don't think I got all of them. Hilo was devastated by a tsunami in 1960. I see the abundance of murals as I way to breathe new life into the city.
Every once in a while, I like to check in and ask myself the following 5 questions to make sure I am on the right track. I suggest you answer these as honesty as you possibly can:
Tyson and I had fun practicing our video making skills. I was so nervous I took a shot of rum to help me loosen up. I hate to promote alcohol, but it worked!
I hope you enjoy this short video demonstrating how I varnish my paintings using a paint roller. It's one of the most popular questions I get from my students. Let me know what you think?!
