Sold and on display at a Washington State College. Older work. “Misty Morning” Encaustics with watercolors on paper on wood panels, wood elements added. This is a sculptural painting. About 1 meter square. Notice the water and the mountains in the background. I particularly like the white sky. This painting was created in a location with lots of cold overcast days. I created art in Washington State for over 10 years and my art reflected the climate there. Aloha from Haiku, Maui... 🌈🌊🌺☀️🌴

Turtles are one of the oldest creatures on earth. The Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle, known as “Honu,” symbolizes good luck, endurance and long life. Turtles can show up as a person’s guardian spirit, known as “Aumakua.” When lost, turtles are excellent navigators and often find their way home. Legend states that a green sea turtle guided the first Polynesian settlers to the islands. In modern times, sea turtles are protected by the Endangered Species act. 🐢 🏝 The circles in my painting represent a seamless life. The Hawaiians believed a closed circle represented a life that has no beginning or end. Therefore, it contains sacred knowledge that is interconnected to the stars and planets in the circle of life. 🌀 🌀 🌀 I just uploaded these two paintings on my website, link is in my bio. #honu #turtle #seaturtle #turtlelove #turtledaily #symbolism #artistofhawaii #islandart #mauiartist #friendsonfaa #theabun #fineartamerica #faaartist #handpainted #originalartwork #art #nature #printsavailable #paintingsforsale #acrylicpaintings #discoverart #coastaldecor #coastallife #darice #daricemachel

“My Mondrian” Encaustic on paper on wood panels with wood elements added. A sculptural painting, 1 meter square. NFS

I just can’t help myself, I’m hooked on #honu sea turtles. My friend and fellow artist, @nancyhoke21 gave me this beautiful conk shell. It works great as a display model for my new painting. 🎨 👩‍🎨 🐢 This one is an unusual size, 7x7 inches square. Since I cut my own canvases I do a lot of uncommon sizes. 🐢 👩‍🎨 🎨 #seaturtle #coastallife #turtlelove #turtledaily #iloveturtles #oceanart #seacreature #acrylicpour #acrylicpainting #originalpainting #paintingforsale #friendsonfaa #artbuyers #theabun #darice #artlovers #mauiart #mauiartist #artistsofmaui #islandart #artistofhawaii #artforsmallspaces #daricemachel

And she’s pau...just need to tidy up the sides ( cause it’s a wrap around 1-1/2 thick edge ) name her and then send her on to her new home...this painting has taught me so much...primarily perseverance and patience and all that goes along with that. A few months ago I literally started a new one, ready to start over and scrap this one..but as I started on the new one, I think I released the expectations I had and she started to talk again...and I’m so thankful for the ability to finishing the original🙏🏼 #tarabdesigns #mauiartist #hawaiiartist
