Wo Fat Chop Sui

117. Wo Fat Chop Sui

11 x 14 oil

I left out the chain-smoking guy slumped against the storefront behind me, the gracious “Superwoman” in her red satin cape and gold crown, cops dashing in and out of their station, and the pigeons tussling in the gutter over a tossed sandwich.  All this and exhaust-fuming buses flying by.  It’s a bustling circus and every now and then the ono smell of roast pork and steamy manapua rises above it all.  I love to paint there.

 

 

Cheap Market

Cheap Market     12 x 12 2014

Kekaulike Market is a colorful conglomeration of market stalls in Honolulu’s Chinatown.  We set up our easels outside on the mall, amongst the busy shoppers, and added to the carnival atmosphere.   Yes, there really was a Cheap Market.
