In emerald-green satin, a young woman sits on a black sand beach with turquoise waves crashing nearby. Pouring cool water from a conch shell onto her skin she washes the accumulation of dust from her soul. A flower in her hair, she is surrounded by red-lipped orchids and cockatoos. A soft setting sun is accompanied by a rising moon amidst glittering stars.
Memories of vacations with girlfriends in the islands of Hawaii fill this painting. I am entranced by the Na Pali coastline. The helicopter ride gave me a thrill of a lifetime as we made our way up and over sharp ridges toward the ocean. Waterfalls gush from between the peaks and we go in for a closer look.
