Original Painting
About the 2022 Halemaumau eruption

18 x 24 Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas (painted around the edges, frame optional)


This painting is in honor of the “down-dropped block” at Kilauea. Many of us have driven on that dropped down bit of road and stood at the vanished overlook into a different Halemaumau crater, and this makes for deep thoughts as our ephemeral natures brush up against geologic time. The old road is visible in the left/middle of the painting if you zoom in. This painting is based on visit in early December 2021.

The collapse occurred in 2018. To Quote the USGS, A total of 62 collapse events occurred between May and early August."
