Title:  A Good Life

Inspired by a couple who used to live next door.  Into their autumn years, they live their lives with gusto here in Maui enjoying the island and in particular the ocean.

Title:  A Good Patch

The simple joys of an old fashion plantation house on a small plot of productive dirt.  Simpler life of a by-gone era can be possible when one learns the importance of saying 'Enough'.

Title:  Bounty

Lush mountain slopes running down to the ocean.  Dwellings hug the coast surrounded by a clear water ocean.  Below the reef yields its bounty.  All under a sunlit sky.

Title:  Drawn In

One of a series of 3 pieces I did to explore the idea of an Asian garden.  Here koi in a pond drawn in towards the people.  Or is it the other way around?

Title:  Over There

Water lilies on a pond in an Asian garden.  A couple sits on a bridge spanning the water.  She points to her left.  Something more interesting over there.

Title:  Savor the Moment

That moment between a mother and child in an Asian garden in the full garb of spring.  A certain vision of paradise when all is right.  My personal favorite of the three pieces.  From a batik technique point of view, this is a rare piece.

Title:  Ulu

The breadfruit is an important source of starch in the Pacific islands.  I grew up with the ulu.  Love it when mum sliced it thin, soaked in brine, and then deep fry.  Less so when she went healthy and steamed it.

This piece is done with very restrained dye pallette.  Start with some yellow and then it's all blue until the final black.

Title:  Bananas

Another simple study of island starchy fruits.  Bananas is that part of island memories.  All different varieties.  Ever present.  There's hardly a time when there is none available.
