Maui no ka 'oi

Maui no ka 'oi. That's the saying on the island. Maui is the best. All of the Hawaiian islands have unique personalities and I've enjoyed every visit. But there is one thing about Maui that makes it stand out for me: the views of the other islands. All along the west side you can see Kahoolawe, Lanai and Molokai. I never get tired of looking at them. Especially in the morning when the sun first rises. I painted this last week at a park on north Kaanapali beach.

At rest, oil, 16" x 12"

I have to admit that my favorite is Kauai... but so see why you love Maui. You really nailed the atmospheric perspective on these distant shore pieces.
