Inspired by the view of West Maui Mountains from the vantage point of Wailea.  With this piece, I try to convey the colors and light of a Maui trade wind day.  Clear blue sky punctuated by trade wind clouds.  Coconut fronds rustling in the wind.  Waves washing onto a rocky shore.

Yellow hibiscus. 

The form of the main subject is finely executed with delicate texturing with the edge of the knife.  I find this to be an approach that I like.  Then I loosen up with the rest of the piece.

This is another piece that I approach with the same refined application of the oil onto the board with the knife for the main subject.  Then loosening up with the rest of the piece.
