Mauka (toward the mountains) view

In Hawaii, directions to a destination often include one of two words: mauka—toward the mountains, and makai—toward the sea. Such is life on an island. It's wonderful to be in a place where you can be viewing a an amazing, panoramic seascape and then turn around to see equally beautiful mountains. This painting is a view from Lahaina on Maui. It doesn't do it justice. You'll have to go see it for yourself.

Great sense of depth and sheer scale. I'd say you took us there. Thanks! I needed a vacation! :)
