Sierra Drive

Sierra Drive" is an oil on canvas painting (25" x 19")
by Douglas Davenport, MD, of a house on the street
where Dr Davenport lives.

These old-style construction homes were
made to catch the cooling trade winds and
the porches allowed for family gatherings
and "sharing of aloha." This house looks
down on Diamond Head in Honolulu, HI.
Dr Davenport is an emergency medicine
physician at the Moanalua Medical Center
in Hawaii. He worked in ceramics for many
years, starting his own pottery studio, Black
Dog, in Mokuleia, Hawaii. A number of
years ago he began painting, following a
family tradition, and finds that it balances
his life as a physician, father, and husband.
It allows time for contemplation, meditation,
and creativity.
