Kaanapali Beach Palms, Maui, Hawaii

Kaanapai Beach Palms
8" x 6  Oil
$100.00 + $10. s/h

I loved all the palm trees in Hawaii.  I think that I must have taken 100s of pictures of 
them.  Maybe I'll do a palm tree series one day.

This guy had just crawled up on the beach.  I had seen turtles swimming in the water, 
but how great to see him (her?) up close!

Quite lovely piece, Pam. I love seeing the sea turtle too.

How wonderful to see a turtle that close. I wish I had seen one. I didn't even see them in the water when I was there. I enjoy your palm trees very much, Pam. They are almost moving in the breeze.

Sherry, thank you so much!

Thank you Julie. Several times we saw turtle heads popping up. And, when we went snorkeling, I saw a mother and baby swim by.

I really like the bits of tan under toning left showing, Pam!
Great flowing fronds!

Beautiful work Pam. I can feel the tropical breeze. My husband and I were there in the 60's.

I've been loving your edges and brushwork on all the Hawaii paintings particularly, wonderful feeling of sunshine!

Pam Holnback said...

Thank you Dean. "Great flowing fronds" would make a good title!!

Joan, thanks so much! Hopefully you'll get back one day!

As always Nancy, Thank You!

Hilda, Thank you so much! You can be assured that I'll do more palms!

Thank you Mary. I think that my edges are softer when Im plein airing (is that a word?) due to the speed required because of the changing light.

Your beach scenes are so refreshing.
