Hope everyone is good today it's Nov. 15th, wow Thanksgiving is next week. Can't wait for the stuffing. I have it down, but in the meanwhile I draw.....the greatest therapy in the world.
For you who don't know, my husband has worked in Licensing for years and has taken it upon himself to license my art. Now I have had art lying about for years, I've been painting and drawing for .....40 yrs! Yep Some of the names he has sold have been rather impressive, Swatch Watch, Jimmy'z, Diadoro, Ellesse, now Deb Haugen Art. My art has helped me heal from a massive brain aneurysm 2 yrs ago. It did affect my artwork. It got better, more refined, more defined, more directions, broader in scope.
My husband and I love the ocean, the beaches in Hawaii and Malibu that we grew up on. We care very deeply about keeping the oceans clean and the environment safe for future generations.....we have 2 darling grand daughters that just entered their first surf contest in Haleiwa, so it is near and dear to our hearts.

The Aloha Spirit of Hawaii is palpable everywhere you go in Hawaii there aremany warm hearts, and open arms, cultures mix easily in the melting pot of the Pacific. I hope I have captured just a tad of that feeling in my art. It's such an important message for the mainland I feel like I have to get it out there.
