Alaska in Hawaii

AA220901-AinH space-tThe lasting connection between Alaska and Hawaii is like a rope made of many strings. Alaska and Hawaii are the last of 31 territories that applied for and achieved statehood, both admitted in 1959. They are also the only two states not bordered by another state, likewise no interstate highway connects them to any other state.

But the ties go deeper by example, Hawaii’s famous Humpback whales migrate back and forth, vacationing in the lovely bay between Maui and Lanai, only to return to the Gulf of Alaska in early fall.

Likewise many people consider both their home state, living part-time in each. Both Alaska and Hawaii boast a rich history of native peoples. They each represent extremes in United States weather from the tropical to extreme sub-zero temperatures in parts of Alaska.

Represented here are the glorious blues of Hawaii’s tropical waters, and the unforgettable blues of Alaska’s incredible glaciers. Both extremes of water, set against the trademark blue skies that make this world so very unique.

Another notable extreme, Hawaii’s warm tropical waters are heavy with salt, where Alaska’s glaciers represent the largest reservoir of freshwater in America.

Commissioned in the late 80’s, by a salmon fisherman living in Hawaii, who fishes all summer in Alaska. This piece attempts to bring together the glory of these two American extremes, by way of a window with a view out to an Alaskan glacier, floating a top of the water of an Hawaiian tropical coastal scene.

Invocation

AA160507-Invocationspace-t

Hawaiian lore – summoning of a deity for assistance

The Hawaiian woman is invoking ancient mystical powers. She, or someone she knows, needs healing, or a better situation, so the fires will cleanse and disperse the old energy and bring in the new.

Turtle Cave

TurtleCave

In my diving experiences I have observed many turtles. I could see them disappear into caves. One cave was above and below the water, we swam into the cave and observed corals, fish, turtles and birds flying in and out. It was an experience I will never forget.

The Great Whales

The-Great-Whales

Living near the ocean in Maui I was able to observe the great Whales as they come through the bay to spend the winter in Hawaii.

Occasionally we would go out on a whale watching cruise and one day we had the most extraordinary experience of whales ever. A family of Whales surfaced near the boat with all the babies. That sighting I attempted to convey in The Great Whales.

On the right, in the painting we see in the distance the west Maui Mountains. On the left, a small portion of Kaho’lawe Island can be seen.

Aquarium at Makena

Aquarium-at-Makena

 

One of my favorite places to go was Makena Beach which is a beautiful wide, white, sandy beach.

In those days, driving to this beach meant travel over a rough old dusty dirt road. The rewards of the bumpy drive were worth it. A friend I knew had a house on the ocean where you could walk out on the rocks and look back at Makena Beach and Redhill above. Then snorkeling to see the reef, I discerned this as one of those pristine locations that are irresistible to paint, thus this painting was born.
