Egrets are one of my favorite birds, but this is the first time I have sketched one.

Montezuma Oropendola

My paintings have felt a little tight and stodgy lately so I busted loose with this one. I feel much better.

Outrigger, Beached

We travel to the Philippines for this month's virtual paintout via Google street view. This outrigger was beached with a number of other boats, most with palm fronds thrown over them. I'm very familiar with the sharp, brittle feel of palms like this, having had royal palms at each corner of my back yard that required debris removal on a frequent basis. Good to see them being put to use after they have fallen from the tree.

Waikiki Gabled House

Here's an old friend, painted en plein air 15 or so years ago. Another old friend, Mark Norseth, posted a painting of a house very similar to this one on his Facebook page today that reminded me of this painting, hanging out in my closet. I thought it was the same house but on closer inspection, it is not. It does have a similar vibe to it, I think. I'm glad for the reminder to get this one out of the closet and in to a frame. It brings back good memories.
