The Vineyards

AA140123-Vineyards-3

space-tAn old house where I lived briefly in 1976 in Northern California, had this exact view.

I painted it in the autumn time of year when the Golds and Reds were predominant. The neighbors daughter would run her horse through the vineyards and she can be seen in the painting.

Morning in Ulupalakua

Morning Ulupalakua

AA140115-MUlu

space-tA companion piece to Evening in Ulupalakua, morning presents a different view looking across the whole of the island.

In the front right one can see the old dirt road that was closed in the early 80s. Below is the Coast of Kihei, and popular beaches.

On the right we can see the central Maui Valley Isthmus and the North shore coastline.  Towards the top we see the West Maui Mountains, another volcano. The two volcanoes merged to become one island millions of years ago.

Libra

AA140112-Libra

This painting was done Plein Aire style which was rewarding to be out in nature and not in the city, since much of my life is spent in cities, this was very refreshing.

In 1969 I left Los Angeles to move north to Washington state. I ended up moving to Camano Island. I painted in various locations together to combine into one scene.

I wanted to paint nature from life so I created “Libra” which I painted for six months starting during the Autumn season.  Many days were inclement weather and I had to bring some of the ferns, leaves and mushrooms into the studio and paint them.  When the weather was sunny I would go out and paint in the woods.

In the top area one can see Whidbey Island and the Olympic Mountains. A boat crosses the water on the Puget Sound.

My love of nature truly came out in this painting.

space-tIn my many visits to the volcano crater of Haleakala I’ve had extraordinary experiences there. It is truly an other worldly place.

There are three cabins built in the 1930’s, to stay in inside the crater. I have stayed in all and each one is in a different geographical location. The strenuous hike from Paliku cabin down to the sea is pretty amazing and one needs to be in shape for it.

One of these trips into the crater presented many fast-moving clouds, a little rain and some rainbows. The dark and light play of the sun was fantastic, it became the inspiration for “house of the sun” or
Haleakalā, in Hawaiian.

Haleakalā is a massive shield volcano that forms more than 75% of the Hawaiian Island of Maui. The western 25% of the island is formed by the West Maui Mountains.

The tallest peak of Haleakalā at 10,023 feet, is Puʻu ʻUlaʻula (Red Hill). From the summit one looks down into a massive depression some 7 miles across, 2 miles wide and nearly 2,600 feet deep. The surrounding walls are steep and the interior mostly barren-looking with a scattering of volcanic cones.

The road to the summit of Haleakalā rises from near sea level to 10,023 feet in 38 miles, possibly the steepest such gradient for autos in the world. Visitors ascend through several climate and vegetation zones, from humid subtropical lowlands to subalpine desert. Striking plants and animals such as the Haleakalā Silversword and the Nēnē goose may be seen in this mountain section.

The summit-area depression, misnamed Haleakalā Crater, formed as erosion ate away the mountain joining to make two valleys. This 19-square-mile wilderness area 2,720 feet deep, is the park’s major draw.

Garden of Eden

Garden of Eden

AA140104-Eden

The ultimate vision of paradise on earth, this work represents research from the original narrative of the Old Testament.

Dominated in the foreground by the Tree of life, depicting some of the twelve different fruits that would grow on the tree; to the Tree of Knowledge wherein lies the serpent.

Between the two trees is an odd looking rock, which is the onyx stone mentioned in the biblical narrative.

The peace and serenity are emphasized by the congeniality of the individual animals that comingle.

Because this is before the flood of Noah, there are no clouds shown in the sky and the watering is done by the rivers and continuous mists. This painting also shows the light from the darkness before Adam and Eve were created.

Evening in Ulupalakua

Evening Ulupalakua

AA140103-EUlu

space-tFrom my home in Maui, I could walk to this view in five minutes.

The eucalyptus tree seen in the foreground is not a native Tree to Hawaii.

Situated in the middle of 22,000 acre Ulupalakua cattle Ranch, great views including Makena Beach, La Perouse Bay and the islands of Kahoolawe  and Molokini can be seen in the distance.

Bird of Change

Bird of Change

AA140102-Bird

I found the bird had been killed by a cat where I lived in the islands (Camano Island, Washington) this cat was a very good hunter and just killed the bird for sport and left it. I felt so bad that this poor bird died in vain that I placed it on an old stump and painted it right there.

Living on the island there was great nature all around me and the people were nice.

Plein Aire type of painting is where the artist takes his paint, brushes and canvas out in the field to paint the scene from life.

Avi Pompeii

Avi Pompeii

A glimpse of the bird life in Pompeii as the ancient bird-bath still serves today as an aviary gathering place. The birds are oblivious to the ancient decaying murals on the walls, which even depict birds.
