This painting captures the view from my home and art studio. It’s a beach house in Kahana with a large stone wall surrounding the property. Each morning as daybreak approaches a light shimmers across the bay. The gradual strengthening of the sun light is reflected on the distant island of Lana’i. The last of the evening stars fade away and the hibiscus begin to awaken to the mornings first light. This is a prelude to the beginning of an island day; locals are collecting the seaweed and the fishermen are heading out in their boats to reap the gifts of the sea. No matter where we awaken to around the world, we all share the mornings first light, which brings with it tranquility, inspiration and hope for the future.
