aloha! having recently returned from the
lovely hawaiian islands, it has been a slow start
back into doing some art but I'm back in the full swing
with some drawings and travel photos today.
he would be much happier if he turned
to see the color in the world. instead he
only looked down.
a friend gave me a vintage simplicity pattern.
it brought back memories of my tailoring teacher,
her red cheeks, powdered face, tabu perfume and
pearls. a tad overdone for a high school teacher but
she taught me how to meticulously make tiny stitches
which no one ever saw but molded jackets to fit perfectly.
i went on to win tailoring contests.
one of the main reasons to go to honolulu was to visit the
disney resort. our friend was asked to paint the mural depicting
the history of hawaii.
it graces the entry. our son was the model
for one of the warriors.
the pictures i have seen of the mural does not measure to
seeing it in person.
we stayed at the iconic
pink royal hawaiian hotel on waikiki beach.
so much of waikiki has been built up so
that you cannot see the beach from the street.
it has years since i have visited this island.
the royal hawaiian was a treat and a retreat
back into a bit of old hawaii.
on my morning walk were japanese tourists doing
yoga on the beach, their designer bags lined up
in back of them.
we stayed in poipu for the remainder of the trip.
in a sweet house owned by a family since the
early 1900s. the view was unbeatable and the
there are leaves that look like a world map
and feel like leather.
i miss the waves lapping on the shore, the soft breezes,
the slow pace... a sign of a good trip.
thank you for visiting today.
wishing you lovely weekend!
