Maile Ilima Lei #9

It doesn’t end here… artist as a job description is not just drawing and painting there is a lot of other things done each day where all self-employed people wear a lot of hats.

Now to let it thoroughly dry and erase all pencil marks as much as possible. Scan and then clean it up in PhotoShop and save in whatever formats the client requests…

Save files, transmit files, package up originals and get ready to send…

Billings, correspondence…

Backup and clean up job files and save. Wa Lah! Done.

tracing whereabouts of lost art

In October 2007 these paintings were donated to  “Holy Family Hospital” and placed in their Shamrock Gala auction, Don’t Rush a Good Thing I304”, “Seven Horse Spirits K404”, and “Koolau’s Haiku K504”.

The mystery of where the 3 missing paintings ended up afterwards begins after they are placed in Holy Family Hospital’s initial “Shamrock Gala” fundraiser auction. The event was held at the Davenport Hotel in Spokane WA in March of 2008. A beautiful affair that I was graciously given a ticket to attend. Tuxedos and formal dinner attire were required to a sit down meal with table center pieces that had tree branches painted gold, foliage and tubular lights intertwined.  I have a souvenir wine glass from the event pictured below,  “Latah Creek” and “Shamrock Gala” on it. Here is a link to more information about the event that was rec’d later.

Two paintings, Don’t Rush a Good Thing I304 and Seven Horse Spirits K404 were not sold at the auction and I don’t know what became of them. Contacting the hospital to request  information about their outcomes has not been successful in locating them so far.

One of the paintings did find a home, Koolau’s Haiku K504was purchased during the course of this auction by a sweet couple who I was able to meet afterwards. I  recall that they live somewhere here is Spokane WA but I regret that I never did think to get their names or contact information when I was introduced to them.

I would like to be able to locate these missing children (lost oil paintings) from the beginning time period of my oil rub-outs career so I can complete the information for my records. I wouldn’t mind seeing them again also. Please feel free to contact me with any suggestions you may have to help locate them.
