Hawaiian Art Newsletter from

Hi Friends,
Here we are in the merry-est month of all. In Hawaii that means wind, rain, sun and surf. It also means a season of good will and giving. The artists are busy in their workshops creating as much as they can while at the same time tending to their families and managing their lives. 'Tis definitely the season for painting with aloha.

This month's Art Tip is on supporting fellow artists with cooperation rather than competition.

Our Painting In Paradise Artist Retreat is coming up on December 14 and 15 at a beautiful beach front property in Waimanalo. This will be an unforgettable paradise learning experience for those participating. There's still time to register at

Our Christmas Special through December is get a FREE 8"x10" matted print with each order, or, get an invitation to the Hawaii Artists Christmas Party.

Mahalo for viewing our Hawaiian art newsletter and I encourage you to contact me with anything I may help with.

Please enjoy our favorite photos and have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
With Aloha from me,

Art Tip

Supporting Fellow Artists
It seems that some things do get better with age. Cooperation is something I learn more about as I get older. As a young artist I was definitely more protective of my work and painting techniques. A big reason for that is because artists are generally protective of their creations and when we are younger, the inclination to own or possess something is sometimes stronger than our desire to share.

Help the newer artists to express themselves by teaching them what you have learned in every aspect of art and business.
You may find that you are not so offended when someone paints in a similar style, or depicts your favorite subjects. I'd like to encourage you not to look at art as a contest, but to notice how what you do is influencing others. 

Be helpful to your fellow artists and celebrate their successes. Help to build a bridge of cooperation that unites artists rather than a barrier of competition that separates us. Make your first impulse one of encouragement be thankful there are more people out there exposing the world to that which you love.
artists reading this may have a long enough career to enjoy the personal growth that comes from dedicating ones self to the arts.
