If you recall, last summer I had the pleasure of meeting up with the Hawaiian voyaging canoe Hokule`a on Cape Cod.  Its three-year voyage ends on June 17.  To celebrate its return, I have done two paintings.

The first is oil and will be part of a Silent Auction at Ocean Fest tomorrow.  Money raised supports environmental programs for children.


The second is a line and watercolor wash that will be on display and for sale at a local restaurant.  If it sells, I will donate half to the Polynesian Voyaging Society.

Lovely paintings, Mea.  I like the first one very much. Great idea also to support the needy. Have to start doing some auctioning work, too.

Thank you, Gita, Trev, and Val.  I love doing paintings of Hokule`a. It's so popular a theme right now so there may be several others in the auction.

Thank you, Sharon and Win.  The painting sold at the silent auction and the bidder seemed thrilled to get it.
