    Description

    Maui offers spectacular sunsets all year long. I feel so fortunate to be able to see most of them. The colors and romance of our sunsets attracts 100s of people to line up at the sunset hour along Front Street, all armed with their cameras to capture that moment in time.
    This scene is one of my new "Sunset series". The island in the background is Lanai as seen from Lahaina on Front Street. I've changed my color pallet to enhance the feeling of drama and romance.

    Feels like I'm there

    Love the orange which brings the viewer through the scene from back to front and around again. Sharp edges give it a photographic quality while chunky strokes in the water soften the scene and make it more human. Love this painting.

    Depth Perfection

    Masterful use of color temperature to create sense of depth, distance, and the fullness of the sky. Hate to give 4 stars for originality; doesn't need to be original to be amazing but it is a landscape.
