Hotel in Waikiki

We stayed at the Courtyard Marriot in Waikiki. Here is a watercolor painting of the pool in the beautiful courtyard of their namesake.

The view from our room:

My favorite part of the hotel room was this lamp. I drew it with great affection:

The most interesting thing to draw in all of Hawaii were the banyan trees. The drawing below is of a tree by the playground in the zoo. Tomorrow, I will present my animal drawings from a day at the Honolulu Zoo.

Final Destination

From Saint Paul International Airport in Minnesota we got on a plane and landed in Oahu, Hawaii.

Much like my last vacation, I carried a sketchbook everywhere I went. The above painting is of Diamond Head from a beach in Waikiki. Over the next few blog entries, I’ll share with you little snippets of my Hawaiian trip.

The hibiscus is Hawaii’s state flower. They are everywhere on the islands! If you put a flower behind your right ear in your hair, it means you are available. If the flower is placed on the left side, it means you are taken.

In the following drawing I’ve illustrated how Kevin and I drank coffee as a toddler in half a spider-man suit repeatably walked up to the stage and stole a show with his own version of the hula dance.
