Completely open canoe!!!  Ole macro, what an adventure this must have been.  I thought it had quarters under....

Okay then, yap I agree, no go for putting a painting on board.

Don't care there are hundreds... because there is only one signed Mea.... hum 'Mal'  :)

Trust your friend will cherish it.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

What is that... ever thought we did not have faith in you My Dear Editor  :smitten:

Cheers, Annie

Attended a wonderful artists reception for the Assoc. of Hawaii Artists Contemporary Show. Even though I did not get an award, I was very proud of my Hokule`a painting.


This reception had live music (soft Hawaiian music that did not overpower the conversation); a fabulous array of food; excellent artwork (which the president of the group credited me for doing the spotting during the set up), and a large crowd of art lovers.

I felt really good to be part of such an event.

Your painting looks wonderful and so do you! I will definitely visit the showing at some point. So what is "spotting"?

Thanks, Denise.  Had a great time.

The "spotter" sets up the show.  Decides what painting goes where.  I have been training in past several show and got to work with the president of AHA to set this one up.  She and I agreed on every painting so it went up quickly.  The men do the hanging; we tell them where to put things.

It's fascinating work and I love doing it.

I only had time to enter one painting in the Windward Artists Guild's members only show this month.  My son joined me for the reception.

The painting is my version of the Hawaiian sailing vessel HOKULE`A on its round-the-world journey.  Here it is transiting the Cape Cod Canal in Massachusetts. It's 11 x 14 watercolor on hemp paper.


I felt good that someone wanted to buy it, but it is not for sale as it is for my friend who was onboard to help navigate.

Thanks, Kathy.  I had a much simpler frame, but this one looked classier.

Annie, I think meant your message was meant for a different topic.  But it is nice to give me the opportunity to say HI!
