White sand, blue water, and green sea turtles, oh my! Maui’s Ho’okipa Beach Park offers a rainbow of beauty all year long. Ho’okipa Beach is a world-renowned windsurfing destination. This spot boasts some of the best waves on the island. Surfers have flocked to this beach since the 1930s.
Capturing the big waves that Ho'okipa is famous for in this acrylic painting was a great challenge. I wanted to convey the power and motion of the Pacific Ocean as it crashed on and over the rocks. The translucency of the barrel wave lets the light shine through. And you can almost feel the spray of the sea.
This is yet another great painting to add to my "Dancing With Waves' series.
