Thanks to the AHA Saturday gang, the plein air painting folks and Jerry of the HWS for attending.

Wow! Hawaii looks like the place to SketchCrawl! Fantastic light. I'd love to see more of the paintings-Ron's looks interesting-he's holding it to camera - looks like a kind of beach hut?

Michelle: Thank you for posting first to the site and your kind comments.

MattJonez: Yes, Hawaii is a great place. The hut Jerry is painting is Buzz's Steakhouse next to Kailua Beach, we had lunch there after the crawl.
An older Hawaiian style hale with a tree growing out of the roof. We hope Jerry can post his finish work.

Another view of the hut, Spencer watercolor of Buzz's during the last sketchcrawl http://www.sketchcrawl.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2569

Donal: Thanks for the encouragement! Yes, we are fortunate to live in a warm place. The Sketchcrawls from other places are so interesting and fun.

I would love to join your Sketchcrawl group in sunny Hawaii.
The weather looks so perfect.

One day, I'd like to join your Sketchcrawl....more like Paintcrawl :D

Lillian - nice snug set up.

Jerry & Ron - Beautiful landscape paintings.

Mark - The Canoe Hale painting looks great. Love the shadows.

Mike - nice composition with the canoes.

John - It's like you snapped photos with your sketchbook.
Each layout can stand alone, but still tells its' own story.

Oh, what a fine weather you had over there - please share that Sun with the rest of us, and we will send you some rocks for your whiskey, or lemonade?
Have a nice day!
