Oh, yes, definite Christmas card worthy.  Lovely, lovely.

Great use of limited palette and neat rock salt effect.   Hmmm, might be hard to find rock salt in Hawaii.

Love the white sand beach.  I agree about the waves and the drop off look.  Maybe soften that dark blue line in the middle to lessen the drop off effect.

The upper set of waves has a nice curve; maybe try to make the bottom set similar.


I really think you are doing beautifully with oil.

Cockpit sale - cool idea!  Hope it goes well.

Smart to make plenty of room for art supplies in place of clothes.

Keep us posted.

 :thankyou: for keeping us up to date, Val, considering how busy must be, not to speak of the emotional side of 'parcelling off' an era of your lives. But, of course,  :yippee: there is the excitement of your new house and home in a magical place.  Hopefully all will go smoothly and you'll soon be posting artwork of the impressions you have of the beautiful area.

Thanks guys. It has been pretty hectic so far, had no idea how much 'stuff' we had stuffed into out of the way lockers!  :faint: Most all of my w/c supplies and paintings are packed, all but my sketchbook and one pencil are packed. Just my pastels and papers left to pack.... can't bear to lock them away from sight!  :'(
Will be leaving a lot of clothes, thongs(flipflops) and sundry for the local village so that will make life easy. Not so much to pack and we can get new as we find the need in the more/less temperate climate. We will actually have seasons! Not like Canada (thank goodness), no snow  :yippee: , but will need some long pants and jackets. brrrr  :cold:         :2funny:
Getting things ready for our 'cockpit' sale on the weekend.... hopefully will not need to do too many of them!

I have to agree about the waves. As they are, it almost gives the impression of a drop off. Otherwise it's great.  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap:
