Keolu Awaits

Date: 7/22/2011

Location: Hualalai Resort


Medium: Oil on stretched canvas

Artist's Comments: The private golf clubhouse at Hualalai resort is perched at the top of the property to offer the most impressive panoramas within the project. The slopes of the volcano reach down from Hualalai's summit to the shoreline offering a gentle incline that allow you to view sweeping views. The Clubhouse was named Ke'olu which in essence conveys the feeling of enjoying the welcoming ocean breezes that frequent the upper elevated areas of the island. The facility is particularly stunning featuring a pod-style arrangement of buildings and surrounded by lush tropical landscaping. A large swimming pool is lined with a row of umbrellas to enjoy these stunning views from shaded comfort. Below the clubhouse the driving range of the golf course slopes every more gently towards the sea. Here rich greens shimmer in the sunlight as fingers of natural lava were preserved to further blend nature within this resort. This day there were pockets of clouds that cast variated shadows on the land. I tried to capture the rays of sunshine that made it through the clouds leaving the rest of the area in shadow.
