Ok, we are past the halfway point of our stay here on the Big Island.
I LOVE it!
This is Pitaya amarilla, or Yellow Dragon Fruit.
It is delicious!
The other day, we drove up on the 10 mile narrow, winding, hillside (mauka) Heritage Road
Lush, green, cooler habitat than down on the beach.
Saw lots and lots of coffee plants.
We stopped at a place we could pull off and be safe.
The attraction for me to paint there was a little window of light
shining on banana leaves
and the ocean in the distance.
kind of a mess, but this was my block-in that stayed this way for several days
Finally had the chance to work on it today. Pretty abstract, but I like it.
This painting is oil on a 6 x 6 inch prepared archival panel ... the only 6x6 panel that I brought.
Mahalo for looking in!
