Here Comes the Sun 10″ x 20″ oil on board Sold

Hanalei Pier 10X20

10″x20″ original Oil on board with 1.5” profile.  $650  SOLD
This piece found a home in the islands.  My fellow artists got up early to go plein air painting high above Hanalei Bay.   The sun was just coming up and burning off the morning clouds when we hiked out to our viewpoint.

The Hanalei pier is a North Shore  of Kauai landmark.  The base of the pier is located in Black Pot Beach Park.  Hanalei beach is featured in many movies starting with South Pacific and more recently The Descendants.

Hanalei Bay is a great place for paddle boarding, surfing, fishing, watching the sunset, walking a long beach or just relaxing on a beach towel.

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.
