My Favorite Spot
Here are Tuko and I painting at my favorite place on the Red Road (highway 137), which is that stretch just past mile marker 17 where the road dips down and passes by the cliffs under a row of very old palm trees. I suspect that these trees date back to the old "Kings Highway" which was built in the late 1800s and can still be found here and there along the coast. You could say that this is my "primary motif" as I come back here over and over to paint, either looking up or down the coast at the fierce waves and gnarly rocks, or along the road as it winds under the palms or under the canopy of kamani trees. I think it must be one of the most beautiful places in the world. That's our good friend Wailana with Tuko.
