Spirit of Bali Hai at Ha’ena Beach
Spirit of Bali Hai at Ha’ena Beach (36×36 mixed media on canvas) is a gorgeous interpretation of a slice of heaven where the lush tropical jungle meets the golden sandy beach and turquoise waters. Sitting on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, on an island so far out in the sea, life slows down and all the noise disappears. If you look out into the ocean, you see the vast expanse of blue. If you look inward, you see Mount Makana (Bali Hai) looming mysteriously above the beach. The paint was added in washes/glazes to allow a few symbols and messages to peek out. The washes also give the ocean water a luminous quality.
