Ohia ... and o'er deah

Ever have one of those days that you just need to plop your butt under a tree and watch the clouds float by?

This is gorgeous Joan!!! Really beautiful!

And no...I would not plop my butt down under a tree in Chicago right about now....it would surely freeze.

Oh its a gorgeous piece of work - love the simple touch of red. No way am I sitting under a tree here in East Anglia - its snowing and the girls are in the garden trying to make a snowman!!!.

Wonderful painting Joany! I really love the colour combi. And... yes.... Every day I would love to do that. But also here there's snow and a very cold wind. But go ahead and have a great time girl ;-P

Gorgeous painting, really a beautiful thing. No sitting under trees for me here in the frozen "midwest" either - lucky you to have light, fluffy clouds to watch - but thanks for sharing this with us :)

Thanks Rhonda and D! I wish I could say it was blue skies today but all I saw was rain and lots of gray. : ) Still beautiful tho'.

This could only be by you. Nobody else. It's fab.

Sheesh, is it really so long since I commented here?

aloha Joan,
Beautiful work! I love looking at all of your artwork posts, it really inspires me. What would it cost to purchase this image from you? I am looking to open a small hawaiian studio spa, and am looking for an image to represent that. I thought it fitting because Iʻve named it Ohia Lane. Iʻd love to hear your feedback if you find the time. Aloha, and Mahalo, Pohai Au pohaikealohaau@me.com
