"(Honolulu) the greatest place to loaf and the hardest place to work I have ever struck." "I am going to conquer watercolors this year" Sharp remarked in 1935 (age 76) after having just taken up watercolors after many years. He, in fact, had been a master watercolorist quite early in his career. See entry for #500.
