Artist's Comments: I can only image how fantastic a honeymoon at the Kona Village Resort must be to experience as a "mainlander". The best day of your life enhanced by a trip to paradise where the hustle and bustle of the big day melts away to time alone lounging in your hale enjoying listening the soft waves lapping against the shoreline. It is truly one of the only times everything is on hold and all you have to do is enjoy each other's company 100%. I was commissioned to paint Hale SH2 where good friends of my parents honeymooned many years ago. I hope it brings them back to that fabulous time under the shade of their thatched roof; walking barefoot along soft sand pathways to their only obligation - dining in paradise. In this painting I mixed both the pallett knife and traditional brushwork techniques. Interestingly, I am noticing a signature style developing with this mixture of techniques. Traditionally the darkest shades are painted with the thinest layers but here, I am reserving the darkest shadow areas for the thickest pallet knife techniques. I look forward to how this signature style develops!
