Hawaii #4 “Blue Moon over Ukumehame”

Hawaii #4  “Blue Moon over Ukumehame”
Oil on linen. 

My study of Hawaii continues down this compositional rabbit hole, and I am getting somewhere.
I can see elements of this within the formal painting.
This is an abstraction of my time surfing at 1000 peaks. 

I think this is the best study of Hawaii I have come up with yet.  I absolutely love this painting.  I am going to continue with this color form direction with the next study.  This just feels like surfing to me, and I think this one I will keep for a while before I sell it.

This was a enjoyable to paint, and surfing is wonderful.
