Welcome to "Island Dream Life".
My name is Lisabongzee and I live in Hawaii.
I love to paint tropical island paradise scenes. Many are imaginary places in my mind.... in my dreams.
A perfect far off land, devoid of problems and politics. A simple life, with no alarm clock, no schedule.
Where the only work is paddling out for that perfect wave, or fishing in a turquoise lagoon
while the cool island breeze sends sweet smelling Plumeria your way.
Mahalo for taking the time to view my artwork.
ALOHA ! My name is Lisabongzee and I live in Honolulu, Hawaii. I love to paint. Most of my paintings have to do with the easy laid back island life style. Tiki huts, surf scenes, palm trees, beautiful island lagoons, old style plantation houses, ocean waves, rugged sea cliffs, and tropical flowers and plants are all some of my favorite subjects. Hawaiian, Tahitian, Marquesan, Samoan, and South Pacific themes are what I love.
I enjoy exploring the islands, finding new inspiration. In fact, since I started painting, I have learned to appreciate this islands beauty even more. Noticing the brilliant green shades of the lush mountains during the rainy season, and the dazzling transparent aqua ocean on a calm day. I never take these things for granted, I am truly lucky to be able to live in such a beautiful place.
Hiking the gorgeous Koolau mountains, or heading out in my kayak, gives me different perspectives of Oahu, usually in very satisfying ways. I have a million ideas rolling around in my head, just have to make time to get them down on canvas.
Most of my paintings are landscapes. I use oil paints and a single palette knife, but I also enjoy brush painting, and sometimes combine the two styles.
Thank you for taking the time to check out my website and my artwork. Please bookmark my site, and check back often. I am adding new paintings all the time ! MAHALO & ALOHA from Hawaii !
