Drummer Mick Fleetwood likes to pick up his sticks and pound out a rip-roaring beat to rock 'n' roll classics such as "Don't Stop."
He also has a softer side, in which he picks up a brush to paint his exquisite mixed-media images that are displayed in an ongoing art show at Celebrites Gallery, upstairs in the Shops at Wailea.
"We have a really big display of his landscapes, butterflies and flowers," says Celebrites owner Gerard Marti. "We are selling a lot of his works. The ladies love it!"

Stephen Levine will show his fine art photography at the Maui Crafts Guild in Paia starting Friday to May 25.
Earlier this month, Marti introduced Fleetwood to educator of the environment Jean-Michel Cousteau. Now they will all collaborate on the release of a collection of fine art photography "with the goal to raise awareness on the ocean's and water's vital importance to the survival of all life on our planet."
All proceeds will go to Ocean Futures Society, founded by Cousteau. For further details, call 875-6565.
The north shore of Maui will be jumping this week with the Paia Town Friday Party and the Maui Crafts Guild on the Hana Highway will be right in the thick of it.
The MCA will present a fun opening reception for two artists, fine-art photographer Stephen Levine and jewelry designer Dianne Anderson, from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
There will be refreshments and live entertainment by the Upcountry Celtics, along with the chance to meet the artists.
Anderson makes a free-form, flowing line of jewelry, which is very distinctive in style, incorporating a variety of pearls and other stones.
Anderson's father is noted Taos, N.M., sculptor Paul Keith, whose impressive works have been commissioned all around the world.
Fine-art photographer Levine has lived in Alaska, Micronesia, and Kauai before moving to Maui in 1997.
He now lives in the shadow of Mount Haleakala, taking most of his pictures Upcountry.
"I chase early morning light and late glow of the day, looking for beauty in the commonplace," he says. For more details, call 579-9697.
