Whistler 1 - Arlene G. Woo - Hawaii artist

This watercolor was painted during the Thanksgiving trip to Whistler Resort.  We had fresh powder every day, and even though it was 6 degrees below zero, it was lovely.  It was a challenge to paint snow after painting green mountains in Hawaii.  Arlene G. Woo

Dream of the Koolaus, an original watercolor by Arlene G. Woo, painted from Hoomaluhia Garden

The Koolau Mountains lie along the midline of Oahu.  Most often they are shades of green and gray.  The task for this painting was to "Not use green".  It was liberating to forget about reality.  Thus, it turned out as an imaginary place.
