|"Hawaiian Paradise" 18x24 oil on panel|
"Hawaiian Paradise" was inspired by my stay at Maui in Hawaii last year. As usual I had pictures from the trip so that helped. This beach was a private beach owned by the resort and the mountain in the back is some volcanic island, I forget which one. There are too many islands to remember :) I was drawn to this painting because of the sharp shadow of the tree and the dramatic display of clouds. Also the lighting was perfect...If I remember correctly it was around 9 am or so when we hit the beach. Of course, not to forget.painting for me is a way to relive moments on the past. So in my head I was in Hawaiii...yea that feels great!!... I love my job!...I get to dream as a part of my project, while at work..hehe..
Apart from painting I have been taking a workshop from nationally recognized artist Craig Srebnik on landscape painting. I must say he is an excellent teacher, very generous when it comes to his knowledge/secrets. The workshop will continue all through May...a little hectic for me, but I still enjoy working with other artists. Its a fun process to learn from one another. Here is a small study I did at the workshop.
