"Makapulu Lighthouse" is the third in my series of Hawaii scenes. These paintings have been inspired by photographs my son took on his recent trip to Hawaii. I believe this is on Oahu. I used a good amount of texture on this piece; I think rock just screams "USE TEXTURE!!"...and this one leaked into the sky as well. ( Yes, on purpose...) This is a 6x6" 3/4" cradled piece that I have stained on the sides. What I like about these 3/4" cradled pieces is they can stand alone as is, or are still of an appropriate depth where they can be framed. It is a win win!
I'm really hoping that I have time the next couple days to paint...I think I will need the peace it brings. We found black mold in the basement and that will mean quite a bit of clean-up! It is dangerous stuff!! We don't own this house...or I'm not sure, after all the trouble we've had of late, that I wouldn't stand back and burn it down! (of course I'm joking...a disclaimer...:))...but I DID find scripture in the bible about mold and mildew sorts of things...Leviticus 14:33-47...back then when the priest determined it couldn't be eliminated they tore the house down, and took it to an unclean place outside of town!! (In these modern times it would be the mold inspector and contractor) WHEW...scary stuff when it is in your house...I guess it is all the rain of late and some leaks that weren't properly taken care of...SOOO Wednesday is our clean-up and repairing day...For a clean freak like me this is...well...icky...so kind thoughts would be MUCH appreciated!!
But, as always...happy painting to you all!!
