Wistfully remembering my month in Hawaii, on the Big Island with Zoe. Wondering if I should work¬†my sketches into larger paintings. I was so all over the place, people, landscape, flowers…my new friends; Ugly Pig and Gimpy Chicken. And the colors are so different than I am use to seeing.

Churches are not this color in Minneapolis!
