Paintings from the Pacific

The family went to Kauai this summer and on one of the last days my amazing wife suggested that
my daughter and I do some paintings. REAL paintings! we had already done some sketches and I did a few simple water colors, but these are a bit more serious. So while the kids frolicked and the wife sunned I did these. They are pretty quick and the light was changing faster that I could paint and the paint was drying quicker than I could mix it. Even through all the sand and heat I felt like a traditional artist again, you know like when I was in art school. Though this time my parents weren't helping me with the rent and I didn't need a government loan to pay for supplies.
Mahalo and Aloha!
