A Relaxing Trio

Date: 12/21/2010

Location: Kona Village Resort

Size: 90" x 30" (Triptych)

Medium: Oil on stretched canvas

Artist's Comments: For the second commissioned painting for interior designer Eric Henderson, he requested a large triptych to hang as the focal point of the living room. The color swatches provided for me to match were predominantly an yellow ochre with accents of teal blues. I chose Kona Village as the subject in this area due to the fact that this model unit overlooks the Kona Village resort and the thatched roof tops are visible in the distance from the living room. I thought it would be a nice symbolism to have the shoreline of the Kona Village featured here. My proposal included two subjects to select from: one featured the shoreline of Kona Village with waves lapping up onto the shoreline and the other was the inspiration for this piece. As you venture back into the fresh water ponds in the heart of the Resort, the atmosphere gets more relaxing. You find yourself actually taking deep breaths without even realizing it. There is something so soothing about the peaceful reflections in the still waters and the silence of the surroundings. It was easy for me to focus the yellow ochre hues in the old palm leaves as they droop naturally down the tree trunks. I used my creative license to accentuate teal accents in the ponds bringing a little movement to the peaceful reflections. This project was a wonderful experience and the feedback from potential clients has been overwhelmingly positive. My SitaScapes truly do provide a custom feel to this property!
