It does not need to be a current photo but you or the person who took it has to give me permission to use it. When you submit a photo this will be assumed. Look back on all of your amazing trips here to Maui and dream .  Pick one or two of your absolute favorites and send them on!

Then what?

In JUNE I'll announce the winner and start painting it.  The person who submitted the photo will receive a complimentary giclee print on watercolor paper,- with bragging rights, and have first dibs on purchasing the original painting- HALF-OFF Price. If the winner does not choose to buy, as of July it's open to all comers, regular price.

This is a great way to get a truly special original oil painting!  And in the future I may paint your photo just for the fun of it- so if you check back to my gallery from time to time you may see it! 

Submit your photo today!

June 2021 Winner was Vika FittsMilgrim!
She took this amazing sunset shot at the luau on the beach in Lahaina and submitted it. I play tennis with her, and thought it should be submitted to the contest.  But I did not pick the winner...YOU did. The votes were tallied and she won hands down.

Time-lapse video of my sketch with the painting in progress to work on the rhythm, layout and composition of what will be the final painting.  You can see how I add and subtract imagery until I'm satisfied with the final result.  Then... on to more painting!
