Single pigmented paints, many of which are transparent in nature, are among my favourites. Layer upon layer is built on the canvas, combined with inks and watercolours. The transparency allows each layer to peek through to the one above.

It is the freedom in my style that allows the viewer to eschew the literal and, instead, connect with the emotion that accompanies whatever story the painting is telling them.

The joy, and at the same time the letdown, of feelings whenever I finish a piece, never fails to amaze me. I can’t imagine doing anything else in my life. I will probably die with a paint brush in my hand.

Featured Artist Randall David Tipton

I love these things—building an image through an experimental process of pouring, scraping, blotting and brushing on color until something with a kind of “truth” comes about. My intentions are less visual than emotional.

Artist Showcase, Late Spring 2018

Each piece has a story that unfolds through symbols, color and texture.

Featured Artist Amy Guion Clay

In life and art, I long for the horizon. There is an invisible tether that pulls me toward the unknown, and this is reflected in the artwork that I do. Even in my purely abstract paintings, it’s always about a mythical journey of discovery. I always want to know what is beyond.

Some artists will say the subject of their work is not important. It’s the technique or the style one uses to render the subject that is essential. For me, it begins with the subject and that’s what gets me going.

Featured Artist Bonnie T. Gardner

To me, there is no greater gift in life than to be able to create a painting and see it evolve. I can never predict the outcome of a painting as it develops over time. In that way, art imitates life and life imitates art.

Featured Artist Patrice A. Federspiel

Creating art is a dream come true. Creating art in Hawaii is total inspiration! Mystery and magic are key words for my art and for me.

My goal is to leave the world a better place through the appreciation of art. I love the life I have claimed for myself and feel very lucky and grateful for this focus I have in the creative pursuit of art.

Featured Artist Shanlin Ye

I make use of washes to form an abundance of effects. I am fascinated by the fluidity and ungoverned nature of watercolor. I enjoy watching the water and the color dancing on paper.
