I arrived at Poipu Beach early in the morning.  It was quiet and still.  The early morning shadows were long, reaching out into the protected cove.  Soon the shadows would grow short and the little cove would fill with small children.  Then the question would become , do I put the children into the painting or capture the scene as it was early in the morning.  Tranquility won out.

Poipu Beach has been named the number one beach in the world many times.  It is the best beach I know of for little children.  The cove is protected from the ocean’s waves by a volcanic rock wall.  The water is clear, reflecting only the sky.  You can see the sandy beach under the shallow water.  The best part is I can walk to Poipu Beach from my home.

This is an original oil Painting was painted plein air.  It was a perfect day to capture the changing colors of the canyon.  I stood on the canyon’s edge and watched as the light danced on the walls of the Waimea Canyon.  It has been called the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.  It is quite a sight to behold for the many visitors to Kauai.  There are many scenic trails that explore the canyon.  My favorite is the rim hike.

Pakala’s Beach 9″x12″ oil on board

Pakala’s Beach  9”x12”

Sold

Pakala’s Beach is secluded.  If you don’t know where it is the only thing that might tip you off are the trucks with racks for surf boards that you might notice on the main highway.  To get to the beach besides parking on a 50 mph highway you have to hike through trees after you have navigated the cattle gate.  Be on the look out for bulls that don’t seem to bother the surfers.  I loved capturing the morning sunlight, purple shadows on the beach, the twisted branches of the driftwood tree, the distant hills, the ocean waves and spending the day at the beach.  The original of this painting has sold.

Pakala’s Beach is one of Kauai’s hidden spots.  It’s where the surfers hang out when the surf’s up.  To get there the surfers carry their boards through a tree filled area of a pasture down to the beach.  When I left after spending the day painting at the beach I navigated carefully through the trees and past a bull with very large horns with only the canvas in my hand and a few trees separating us.   Sometimes painting at the beach isn’t as easy as it sounds.

The overwhelming feeling of the hibiscus’ oneness with the sun stirred me to capture the relationship on canvas. The sun seems to envelope the flowers from every direction. Can you see the way the sun’s light penetrates the flowers and is bounced back by the leaves below?
