Fruits of Hawaii

 

Part of a series of fruits of Hawaii. I would pick the fruits, select the best looking ones, arrange them with the best lighting, and start to paint.

In the jungle, there were numerous wild trees often full of fruit where I lived. One could spend the day driving around Maui collecting wild fruit that grow everywhere.

space-tEvocative of third eye consciousness, the mandallic painting brings together elements like the tree of life. Which eventually hooks up with a diatom, a plankton responsible for 80% of the oxygen on the planet.

A dolphin’s exit from the water and people playing in the waves, complete a circle of life.

The third eye (also known as the inner eye) is a mystical and esoteric concept referring to a speculative invisible eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight. In certain dharmic spiritual traditions such as Hinduism, the third eye refers to the ajna, or brow, chakra.

The third eye refers to the gate that leads to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness. In New Age spirituality, the third eye often symbolizes a state of enlightenment or the evocation of mental images having deeply personal spiritual or psychological significance.

The third eye is often associated with religious visions, clairvoyance, the ability to observe chakras and auras, precognition, and out-of-body experiences. People who are claimed to have the capacity to utilize their third eyes are sometimes known as seers.

In some traditions as Hinduism the third eye is said to be located around the middle of the forehead, slightly above the junction of the eyebrows.

In other traditions, as in Theosophy, it is believed to be connected with the pineal gland. According to this theory, humans had in far ancient times an actual third eye in the back of the head with a physical and spiritual function. Over time, as humans evolved, this eye atrophied and sunk into what today is known as the pineal gland.

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.

Isle Pacifica

AA140109-Pacifica

space-t

“For years I was fascinated with the north shore cliffs of Molokai Island, Hawaii, which are the world’s tallest sea cliffs (3,300 feet high).”

“A 3-day yacht trip along this coast with friends helped to solidify my intention to paint this major oil.”

space-tWidely considered to be the tallest sea cliffs in the world, the Molokai sea cliffs are between 3,000 and 4,000 feet high and are located along the island’s north coast.

The Molokai sea cliffs are the result of the Makanalua Penninsula falling into the sea due to the erosion from the seawater pounding away at its base.  What you see now – all 14 miles of it – is what was left standing after the collapse.  The sea cliffs themselves are a deep, velvety emerald green and during wet seasons you can see waterfalls coursing down to the ocean.

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.

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.

We Are The Land

AA130510-Landspace-t

I envisioned the King and Queen together

 

Ulupalakua Maui has one of the most amazing views on the island and this was the view from my house.

Indigenous Hawaiian people believe they are the land, and this is the theme of the painting. Ancient Hawaiian woodcarvings float in a circle around them. Ghostly Hawaiian Hula dancers are on the left. In the right foreground Taro plants can be seen, the root of which is an important food source for the Hawaiians.

The King wears a feathered helmet and Cape, the Queen has a feathered head Lei and a whalebone pendant. The pile of rocks is a remnant of an ancient heiau or temple.
