I met someone here on Maui who told me about the local plein air painters group that gets together weekly somewhere around the island to paint. I decided to go to this weeks location, Olowalu, and paint with them.

I've been getting up early, trying not to get too far off of my mid-west time zone, so I figured to be one of the first to arrive. There is a small, beach-front park with the remains of an old mill and rock pier. Walking out on the pier gave a great view of the shore and mountains. With the morning shadows in the valleys and the blue skies, that was most interesting to me.

I painted for a little more than two hours and finally notice a few painters setting up on-shore. They're on island time. I think they missed the best early morning light though.

Gorgeous treatment of foreground against distant background. Being on "island time" seems like a good way to live.
