Artist's Comments: One of my collectors requested that I paint the 16th hole at Hualalai as this is the only hole he has not received a hole-in-one. I immediately thought of a wonderful sunny day with the golf course fairways shinning vibrantly and the grove of palm trees at the adjacent property swaying in the breeze. The hole itself would be the focus of piece drawing in intention and energy for a hole-in-one. However, the collector proceeded to tell me that his favorite color was yellow and immediately, my vision switched to a wonderful sunset setting with the sky bursting in shades of yellow and the fairways containing more shadows with strong highlights from the setting sun. I gained further inspiration from a new work by Darrell Hill where he painted the setting sun and I was intrigued at how "bright" the sun appeared due to the simple fact that the sky was painted a darker shade which allowed the sun to jump forward and appear radiant. So, I headed to the 16th hole over a series of evenings with camera in had to capture what I thought was the perfect combination of sky and earth. The application was done in my studio and I had so much fun painting the colors of the setting sun!
