Tropical Flora

It goes without saying that Hawaii is an incredible place, but I have to admit that its beauty had faded in my memory, since it had been over a decade since my last visit.  The photographs of sunrises and sunsets seem so cliché, but when you are actually there,  you can see the hand of a higher power at play. Its magic envelops you and is mesmerizing.

I have had several requests for smaller florals and I also have a show I would love to be a part of that has size restrictions so I have been working on a 16″ x 16″ scale.  I was going for  the mood and ethereal feeling I achieved in the larger floral paintings on a smaller scale, but something different has emerged.  Playing around with warmer and cooler tones has created depth and the shots of color burst off the aluminum.
