I appreciate realism in paintings and love seascapes, having grown up next to the Pacific Ocean. So, naturally I would love Roy Tabora's seascapes. He started young as an artist apprenticed by his uncle, Rick Gonzalez. By 20 he was an accomplished artist but decided to go finish his degree in fine arts from the University of Hawaii.
Tabora's seascapes are an "idealized realism." Each painting captures a moment of surf, sun, moon, reflection, and color that reflect the real beauty of Hawaii, but are purely in the imagination. He painstaking attention to detail make his painting not just photographic, but crisp images of imagined memories. Enjoy the beauty of creation and imagination!
