I'm finally back from the longest vacation since I graduated from college. It was a total bliss to enjoy the beautiful nature of Hawaii for two weeks. I had so much fun snorkeling, hiking, looking at the clearest night sky on Mauna Kea (I saw the galaxies and nebular for the first time with my own eyes!) and just plain lazy sun bating. When I got back, I felt a bit guilty about taking such a long break from making art. I was thinking of painting Hawaiian landscape but it was just too beautiful and immense in my memory that I don't have the guts to recreate it on canvas just yet. Perhaps I would try it in a few month. So I made some paintings from the photos I took from my last trip to Europe, where was also scenic but more malleable in my memory to paint.
