A new studio piece

I like the time-change when visiting Hawaii. Getting up and out early allows you to see the most beautiful light. In Lahaina you are in the shadow of the West Maui Mountains at daybreak when the first light hits Lanai. Impossible to capture all the colors, but fun trying, and remembering being there.

To my friends heading there today—enjoy! I'm not far behind you.
