If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away---Henry David Thoreau

Roy Gonzalez Tabora: Hawaiian Seascape Painter

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!
