Artist's Comments: The afternoon session of our second day at the Plein Air Painters of Hawaii Kona Paint Out placed us at the Keauhou Beach Resort grounds.  We all gravitated to the little fresh water pond adjacent to a historical building that used to be King Kalakaua's beach house.  The surrounding foliage is lush and beautifully maintained.  The still pond reflects the colors so well!  It was wonderful to paint with so many other artists on this paint out.  We provided each other with encouragement and suggestions when we hit roadblocks in our work. Since we were all painting similar scenes, each of us had strengths in particular areas of the painting so collectively we were able to share our tricks of the trade and learn from each other's expertise.
