I’m going through an Adele phase… her lyrics are heartfelt… voice is rich… so lovely!  Working into the night I can feel myself settle into the rhythm of yet another quilt.  This is where I’ll be for a while to come… taking it one moment at a time just so I don’t get too overwhelmed […]

I’m a little behind with this one. I worked yesterday in the Emergency Room where at one point we had double the amount of patients we usually handle.  Welcome to the reality of living on an island that is arguably under-served.  As I looked at my patients, one of which I had to put in […]

I’ve been quite busy at work in the hospital these past few days.  Things are crazy busy because this time of year is really hard on people.  I try to keep my spirits and health up by engaging in fun activities and keeping a daily practice of yoga, and it helps to have something to […]

Sometimes when I finish a project I’m so tired of looking at it I no longer want to have anything to do with it.  It’s kind of like eating your favorite dessert over and over again… by the fourth night of eating a fabulous slice of apple pie warmly drizzled over vanilla ice cream, you […]

Today was a simply lovely day thus far… my daughter joined me in yoga this morning and afterwards we had a simple meal of strawberry crepes together from one of my favorite places in Paia – Cafe Des Amis.  Mmmm!  The yoga was good, but today I’d have to say lunch with my babe was […]

Sea Mist My lean brother and I step carefully across the jagged ridge of Hana. A salty grey wave crashes against the tall climb and a rainbowy spray of mist splashes against the rocks. Without a word we sit on the deep black lava rock. The sound of tall palm trees dancing with the wind mixes […]

Elements #39 “Sheltered Sun” 25″ x 38″ Alright, it’s finally finished!  This week is a busy one, but I did eek out some time today to finish the binding, attach the sleeve, prepare the dowel and sign my name.  I snapped a picture of today’s adventure… a field-trip with my son’s class… to show you […]

Oh February… such a brief yet full month!  I’m thrilled because its during this month that the strawberries (grown locally) are beginning to look juicy and plump, the days linger just a wee bit longer, and the color RED seems to be popping up all over. I’m nearly finished with that little quilt that should […]

For the next few Wednesdays I’m going to feature here the work of someone very special in my life… my daughter.  At eleven, she has shown a talent for writing; a talent I’d like to encourage.  Proud mom that I am, I’d like to introduce you to Shelby who pictured here is about four years […]

I’m more than half-way finished with my latest.  I had been calling it “Filtered Sun” and my thoughts about it are here, (and more work on it here), but last night I had the words “Sheltered Sun” flash through my mind which to me sounds better.  I’m not making a final decision until I see […]

Our third day of painting class was spent in two locations.  First we worked on painting architecture by selecting one of three old plantation-style houses to paint.  I forgot to take pictures so unfortunately I cannot show you the house I tried to depict.  Filled with self-doubt, I was able to get the structure drafted […]

Ahhhh, today was a wonderful day for me!  I spent the day in class painting Plein Air and although I didn’t finish anything, I learned a lot.  In the morning we went to the north shore where we had the comfort of shade from beach growth as the sun shone brightly.  I loved being there… […]

Just a few shots from a Plein Air Painting class I took today in Heritage Park in Wailuku.    I wish I had more time to blog about this… I could tell you how my mind swirled as new connections were made, or all about our fabulous teacher Julie, or about how lovely the grounds […]
