  You'll find me painting on stage  at Huggo's on the Rocks

  Come by and say Hi!

   Welcome to the Kona Seaside Gallery,
home of Big Island artist John Collins.
  Here in the gallery you'll find a wonderful array of original fine art.
   John's art depicts the feel of a Hawaii past.
 Marine (underwater) paintings reflect 30+  years of diving in Hawaii and the oceans of the  world.
   We hope you enjoy the offerings displayed here. It would be a privilege to have you join the many collectors of John's exciting art.          

   Aloha to our returning friends. You'll find
new works being added every few weeks; so
please come back often.

Things Coming Up

    I've just started an exciting new series of Paniolo paintings.  All new subject matter.
The settings will feature West Hawaii with Kona as the main location. There will be horses, cattle, Paniolos (Hawaiian cowboys), ships and more. My trade mark cloudscapes will be there.
     The latest image is titled "Pa'u Riders". More to come...
     So, stay tuned.  I hope you'll enjoy this series. Initial response has been terrific.
