When I first moved to Oahu, Hawaii, I saw a landscape so unlike anything I had ever seen before, that it haunted me. I was inspired to paint the beauty of the river basin with Konahuanui Mountain Peak in the background. In the foreground, naturalized red ginger sways in the gentle tradewinds. The sun illuminates the green of the leaves and the tall grass, a green so intense it positively glows, the light sparkling and changing, moving over the landscape on a beautiful sunny day. This painting won 3rd Place Windward Artists Guild 54th Annual Members Show.
