Tourist Vacation #1 - Lanikai is part of a larger series showing photographs of tourist activities at the beaches on Hawai'i. The images were shot with in iPhone 5 contained in a waterproof case using the Hipstamatic Oggl app, and have not been manipulated beyond the orginal Oggl filters with which they were shot. Each image was printed by me in pigment inks on archival, glossy photo paper at 4" square. Each was then mounted to 4" stretched canvases and painted encaustically with several thick coats of unpigmented art beeswax for presentation in tripych format.
