"Misty Mountains"

Date: 2008

Location: Pu'uopelu Estate

Size: 9" x 12"

Medium: Oil on canvas panel

Artists Comments: We returned to Pu’u O Pelu (aka the Richard Smart Estate) which as you may know is not my favorite place to paint! After a few past failed attempts at this location, I am happy to report that I have finally produced a painting I am happy with!

A small valley between two pu'u caught my eye. Bright green meadows contrasted against dark river fed valleys were wrapped in a soft misty blanket of clouds Waimea is so known for. It was difficult to capture the ever-changing shadows created by the passing clouds but, it was a great lesson in working quickly to capture the essence of the moment without worrying about the details.
