and now for something completely different! I received a new iPad Pro and have been sketching on it when my daughter sleeps. It started it as just sketching and keeping up the practice of drawing, which is my first love. I started posting them on Instagram and Facebook, encouraging friends to send me pictures to sketch. These are three beautiful cats whose pictures where sent to me by Holly. Now I am posting images as I go on Instagram @kto_ART (follow me to get updates) and on my FB page Facebook.com/ktoART (like my page for updates). If you don't do social media, I will add new ones to my website and blog every week!
I love birds and I love birdhouses, so this painting makes me happy. It was missing the sign, but I took care of that quickly and now it feels more like a birdhome rather than birdhouse. Home Sweet Home!
Honu On The Reef 12"x12" is complete! I am enjoying these marine life paintings chalk full of colorful reef and little fish. This painting has the honu of course but there's also two menpachi (red), a couple different types of butterfly fish, two kihikihis (b/w), yellow tangs, a parrotfish, a polkadot moa and a bird wrasse. It's an aquarium in here!
Big Island Storefronts 12"x36" new original for Genesis Gallery!
A day down by the shops isn't complete without some beach time, a little surfing, and art browsing topped off with a shave ice, sweet smelling lei and fresh fruit. Ooo, maybe a Mai Tai too! Yum!
