Hawai'i artist Heather Brown releases 2 new pieces at The Wyland Gallery Waikiki August 15 2016, 0 Comments
What a whirlwind of the past 2 weeks, 2 shows and a little summer time cold!
This past weekend I had a show at The Wyland Gallery in Waikiki. Mahalo nui loa to everyone who came out to my show and of course to the great and hard working art consultants at The Wyland Gallery Beachwalk!
The first release from this weekend is "Royal Hawaiian"I have been wanting to paint a piece with the iconic Royal Hawaiian for years now and finally gathered the nerves to attempt it. The original is 24x36 (Sold at the show) and took me about 2 weeks to complete with all of the detail. I'm really happy with how it came out and the vibe it portrays. When asked to summarize Royal Hawaiian recently this was my response.
"Growing up in Southern California, dreams of Hawai'i always stirred iconic images like Diamond Head, The Duke Statue and of course "The Pink Palace of the Pacific" The Royal Hawaiian Hotel with its pink stucco and Spanish style architecture was where I would see pictures of all the old time movie stars, the old Waikiki beach boys and the tourists enjoying the perfect south shore days. I still love to spend time in Waikiki shooting photo's and exploring the rich history of this very special beach town in the middle of the Pacific and a little stay-cation at The Royal Hawaiian is always an extra large treat!"
