My birthday flowers

I'm still working on the birthday flowers, but also tried to paint the white bird of paradise in the back garden-can't seem to find the pic right now..

Grey day in Kailua

I'm still trying to paint Kailua Beach - this time from Kalama. When I went out on Wednesday morning, my other painting really didn't look good so I went home and tried again from a photo I took. This is my experiment with masking fluid to show the waves. Maybe I'll try again on better paper.

Birthday beauties

Tomorrow is my birthday. Look at the lovely flowers that can inspire me to paint more florals.
From my sister and brother-in-law, a lovely tropical bouquet. From my husband, red roses of love.

on my own

The monstera leaves are painted from a picture I took and the tiare (single gardenia) is painted from real life.

Nuuanu stream

I haven't posted for a while so here's a painting we did as a lesson in watercolor class.
