Kaloko Palm Trees

Acrylic on Gessobord, 16 x 12
This location is reached on an unpaved mostly rock road that winds through the lava fields from the highway to the Kona shoreline. The fishponds are extensive and beautiful, so in this painting the ocean does not actually show, but it is just to the left of the picture. My little car just barely makes it in over the lava, and then I am in a world of sunlight, ocean, shorebirds, and palm trees. It is one of my very favorite places to paint.
