Artist's Comments: One of my favorite daydreams involves lounging an entire day under the shade of one of the beach-side chaise lounge chairs at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai. This daydream includes no interruptions from the outside world except for the beach-side beverage attendant and all I am required to do the entire day is simply listen to the waves crashing onto the shoreline and loosing myself in the ocean's endless movement.  I wanted to capture that sense of place and feeling of relaxation with this piece inviting the viewer to join me in this daydream.  I wanted the feeling of filtered light on the sandy beach contrast against the dark cool shadows of the shoreline foliage. Far in the distance, the warmth of the Kohala slopes contrasts well against the cool blue sea. This particular day the waves are not as active and instead offer you a gentle, rolling lullaby.  If you close your eyes softly enough and take a relaxing breath; you too can faintly hear the rustling of palm fronds;, feel the warmth of the mid-day sun; and experience your body melting into the soft chaise lounge chair.  Oh!  Our iced beverages have just arrived!  To view other paintings in my collection, click on the section labeled "View all SitaScapes" located at the top right of my blog. I have categorized my paintings by the month as I complete them.
