Another nice outing

We attended the Pen Women Art Exhibit at the Honolulu Country Club yesterday.  What an eye opener!  We came away learning what appealed to the juror, David Behlke, who is the director of the Koa Gallery at Kapiolani Community College:

A number of awards were presented, but I am posting photos of just the top three.

There was musical entertainment, also, but we left after the guitar piece and drove to Ryan’s Grill for a quick supper, consisting of ribs and salads.

David and I toasted each other with California champagne, and we both said, “OUR LOVE IS OUR RICHES!”

    Looks like fun! (I think I understand my lollipops when they are round, though.)
    Grapes should grow well in Hawaii. Any Hawaiian champagne? (I like how you each drank an entire bottle!) DrumMajor

      There’s Aloha Hawaiian Beer, but no champagne. I know you were just kidding, but those bottles were splits, each containing only 1-1/2 glasses of champagne.

    Lovely event. What fun. I finally uploaded the photo of the Pele iris. Check out the Sunday post for the photo.

    PS the ‘Croton’ painting is my favorite. I like bright bold colors. I’d buy that painting. Dianne
