My artist-friend, Flo, gave this beautiful painting to my daughter, Lisa, for her graduation that is coming up next year. How nice of her! Thank you, Flo! Lisa loves dogs, and the art goes well with the blue carpet in her bedroom.
This is Flo, holding her painting, “Pippin,” in my living room:
This dog, Pippin, is a Bichon Frisee (a poodle). When there was a divorce between relatives, Flo offered to take care of their dog. But because he could not get along with her Chihuahuas and was difficult to handle, Pippin was eventually given to a family in Waimanalo, where he is now thriving. Isn’t he cute?
Flo and I later had lunch at Ryan’s Grill in Ward Center. The food was excellent! This is what we ordered:
Flo had the salmon with purple mash:
I had the opah with wasabi mash:
And we enjoyed the haupia (coconut) crème brulee:
Flo and I have plans to view the art deco exhibit at the Honolulu Museum of Art next month. It’s always nice to see art with an artist, just as it is always nice to attend a symphony concert with a classical musician.
