Yesterday Eileen Borgeson worked on two mixed-media "Aloha Marilyn Monroe" orginals (full body and close-up) incorporating a high resolution digital print with oils, watercolors and pastels. She worked on the patio of our rented jungle cottage (no windows, only huge screens) from Cynthia "Lahi" Verschuur through Craigslist. Her cottage is surrounded by jungle adding the element and inspiration of ultra nature to Eileen's art piece. "Lahi" is a video producer/director as well as hula dancer/marimba player/surfer residing in SeaView.
We are preparing for an art presentation Monday at The Gallery in the Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort on the Kona side of the Big Island arranged by Carolyn Chase owner of the "Chase and Hanes Gallery" in Hilo, Hawaii who will be with us. Peter Sieg of Maalea Press, also in Hilo, will also be with us. Peter is co-publishing the Digital "Aloha Marilyn Monroe" with us on his state-of-the-art German scanner and printer. This equipment is the same used by the Smithsonian and The Louvre.
