COLORS OF HAWAII
Up the Coast to Kilauea Light
6 x 8
Kauai is green, rich and varied. The distant mountains are violet. The water is ultramarine, azure, turquoise, rose. The sands are golden (not Caribbean white) Everything is subject to change with sunrise, sunset, cloud cover, sunshine. The dirt is intense iron oxide red. My husband's white socks are subject to change with red dirt. Will they ever change back?
As a plein air painter, I spend many contented hours sitting in some inspiring spot with the sights and sounds of the outdoors, capturing my impressions of light and color. Back in the studio, these works expand, recreating a particular place in a special moment.
