Hope is a tree in the center of Lahaina Town. Standing as a testament to the strength of the Maui community, the Banyan Tree will once again nurture us with her shade, as she has done for the past 150 years.
This is my hope to see the Banyan tree flourish as depicted in my painting.
Banyan Tree Park in Lahaina Maui is home to the United States largest Banyan tree. This tree may not be the biggest in the world but that hasn't stopped it's fame. People who come to Maui for vacation make it a point to come see this incredible tree. It's huge ranches stretch out over the entire park. It has 16 sub trunks and many braces that help support the huge branches. At sunset each night thousands of birds come in to roost in it's branches. The sound of them is so loud you have to hear it to believe it.
NOTE; This painting, along with my entire inventory and art studio, was destroyed in the Lahaina fire on August 8th, 2023.
