(Kupulau Kai 'Ina)
From my perspective, one of the most inspirational areas on Maui is above and around the pastures of Makawao. It is eternally green there. In the afternoon, the sun lowers below the cloud layer and bathes the area in golden light in a never ending variety of patterns. After all my years of living here, it never fails to take my breath away. You never know how or when such lighting events will take shape. They never appear the same way twice. It depends on the weather and clouds, the season, and the time of day. So when I see something interesting happening, my wife and kids have become accustomed to my sudden distraction. I pull off the road, jump out of my car and try to get a strong mental picture of it to paint in my next painting. If you look at the paintings of my career over the decades, it is, fundamentally, a record of interesting lighting events.
