Artbigisland is the home of artist Stan Chraminski. I am a prior Signature member of the Puget Sound Group of Northwest Artists, and former member and President of Evergreen Association of Fine Arts, doing business as Albion Arts. I hope you enjoy the images presented.


I moved to Kailua Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii in 2015 so specialize in local Plein Air, or outdoor painted scenes to take advantage of the beautiful scenery and weather. You can contact me at email:

We have a painting group, West Hawaii Plein Air painters. I've volunteered to take over scheduling and keeping the group active. I've added the Plein Air Painting Schedule page above to show where we will be meeting and painting as we move forward. We also have a Facebook group under Paintingoutthere that shows the schedule under the Events tab and I post the results of each week's paintout. 

My local landscape artwork can be seen and purchased at Blue Sea Artisans Gallery in the Keauhou Shopping Center. 78-6831 Ali'i Drive, Kailua Kona. 808-329-8000. We are now open regular hours, 10-6 PM every day. Stop by to see some great art and crafts.

My second small art book, "Abstract Art", is now also available on It's a collection of the various types of abstract art I've painted over the years. plus my processes and inspirations. Just follow instructions above to purchase a copy. I've also included an abstract art gallery under the link Artist's Statement and more above.
