Last week AJ and I went to Kona on a painting trip and also to deliver some paintings at the Third Dimension Gallery at the new mall at the Mauna Lani Hotel complex. An upscale gallery. I think Arthur's work is by far superior to anything else in the gallery but there's no accounting for taste regarding what sells and for how much. Still it was good for me to meet the managers who were very enthusiastic. Well, it helps to have the Arthur connection.
We painted on location. In Kona you can take the occasional swim when it gets too hot because you're not painting on the side of a cliff like in Puna.
That's Punahele serving up juice at his B&B. He's a dancer and quite the storyteller.
Regarding the last photo here, the wild turkeys in Kona have good taste in beaches, choosing to frolic at the Mauna Kea Beach. They must not be looking at their calendars and haven't realized what holiday is around the corner.
