North Beach with BFF

A favorite hike to my favorite beach with a favorite friend (and a great blue heron). Yes, Monday was a good day.



My neighbor’s cat. He’s a big fluffy. Cuddly as all get out. Until he’s not. Then there’s fire in his eyes and attack mode ensues. What is WITH that?

Makalawena Beach, 2018

This is one of my favorite places on the Big Island of Hawai’i. It’s a perfect art day in paradise when I hike here, plop in the sand, pull out my sketch pad under a tree, drink a cold beer, and do a mini painting.


Scary Santa

Santa paid his annual visit to our holiday party last month. The range of emotions from visiting kids was pure entertainment. ♥

Benjamin had a nice chat with the jolly man and was pleased with his gift.

This little one was not so sure.

And this one was simply terrified!
