Kukui Fire Final

I created Kukui Fire to fill the space on my dining room wall while my coconut tree is on display this month. Tried to use colors of the Turkish rug with a local subject and here it is.

Kukui Fire

After seeing great sites and art in Europe, I got home and picked up my brush again. Im inspired to use the colors of our new Turkish carpet in a painting of a Hawaiian subject. Here's the first two phases of my kukui nut tree. I just went up and added much deeper colors- wonder how it will turn out..hopefully good enough for the dining room wall.

Ready to show? It's accepted!

Tomorrow I'm going to submit this painting to a juried show in the Windward Artist Guild. This is my first attempt to enter a show, so I have no idea if it will be accepted or not. Going to go for it anyway. Wish me luck.
