I am fascinated by the power of volcanoes. Ancient Hawaiian's knew the power of volcanoes and worshiped them. I have been to a few of the Hawaiian Islands but have not visited Hawaii national park. I would love to see the lava flows of Kilauea and Mauna Loa. I imagine the beauty and horror of massive eruptions years ago. The aftermath of those eruptions resulted in these beautiful Islands. If I ever get to see them it will be a cherished moment, this painting is 52" x 36" acrylic on canvas.
Since childhood I have been drawn to Chinese culture, art and cuisine. I am in awe of what they have developed over the centuries. I had the privilege of visit China some time ago, it's an extraordinary place. The forbidden city, the great wall, Shanghai and so many other places, left a deep impression on my conscious. The people are warm and gracious. The gardens and art were a feast for the eye and the food, well that is an art form there too. I hope to go back some day. This is a 64"x 30" acrylic on canvas.
