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.

Dear Arthur, Tuko and friends,

Looking at the photos and reading your wonderful heart remembers well the Red Road, Hilo, Puna, Kehena and all of the Big Island jungles. Thank you for such descriptive posts. Yes, it is perhaps the most beautiful place on earth...and it's secret has been most definitely out to mainlanders and others for a while now. Yet still, it is not for everyone, which is not a bad thing.

We'll see you all soon June 17-29. I am bringing a bus load of friends and we'll visit the gallery.

Warmest Regards to all, Robert
