Painting in Hawaii

I just returned from a week in Hawaii with my family. I love painting the ocean and the spectacular colors that come from the sea. I especially love the color in the water surrounding the Hawaiian Islands. When I’m painting the ocean I’m constantly studying the action of waves and the color effects of sunlight on water. It’s fascinating to me to see the changes that take place and the challenge is to capture a moment.
