In the garden 8"x8" oil on canvas

This is Chutney- she likes to sleep on this wonderful red bridge my dad made for the water garden. ( I still have a bit to do on this!)
There are a couple of giant green frogs (one is singing exactly as I write this!) and on occasion a digusting huge jabba-the-hut toad invades and we must extricate him.
Its not because he's ugly,  but he messes up the pond. Buh-bye toad.
After a quiet morning of painting and weeding Dad and I went to the Waikoloa Village and walked around. The art collection in the promenade is awesome. Here are a few highlights.


Isn't she lovely?

Japanese tea room


The last one is a giant cloisonee enamal urn.I am inspired!
We sat and watched other people play with the dolphins. Other people willing to cough up the dough!
